Sclerotherapy treats varicose veins, spider veins, or the lymphatic system. The procedure treats blood vessels or blood vessel malformations.

Areas treated by sclerotherapy:

  • Legs

Sclerotherapy may also remedy the bothersome symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling and night cramps.

How is sclerotherapy performed?

A medicine is injected into a spider vein to damage and scar the inside lining of the vein. This causes the vein to close, which also makes them shrink.
