Thinking about Sclerotherapy?

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic medical procedure used to eliminate the appearance of spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the visible vein that the patient no longer wishes to see (most commonly on the legs). The injected solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.

Who needs Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a completely elective cosmetic procedure used to help reduce the appearance of spider veins. Sclerotherapy is approved for all patients other than women who are pregnant. Most commonly, spider veins appear as a result of heredity, hormonal shifts, prolonged sitting or standing in the workplace, pregnancy, or as a result of weight fluctuation.
