Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat spider veins and varicose veins. It involves injecting a solution, typically a saline or chemical solution, directly into the affected veins. This solution causes the veins to swell, stick together, and eventually collapse, leading to their disappearance over time. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically done in a doctor’s office or clinic and requires little to no downtime. It is often used as a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of spider veins on the legs, but can also be used to treat varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and other conditions caused by dysfunctional veins. While sclerotherapy is generally safe and effective, it is not suitable for everyone and may cause side effects such as bruising, swelling, or itching at the injection site. A doctor will be able to determine if sclerotherapy is the right treatment option for an individual based on their specific medical history and needs.
