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.
