Effectively treats spider veins.

Sclerotherapy is a common procedure for your face and legs to reduce or eliminate visible veins.


What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy effectively treats spider veins. It’s often considered the treatment of choice for small veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein.

How Sclerotherapy Works

This solution causes the vein to scar and collapse, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.

After sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to a month to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.


The most common treatment questions answered.

How is the treatment performed?

Some may experience an allergic reaction or an ulceration at the injection side that will heal in just over a month.
