Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins, usually in legs.
Spider veins (also called telangiectasias) are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They are often red, blue, or purple; and they have the appearance of a spiderweb. They are commonly found on the face and legs.
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting small amounts of a sclerosing agent directly into the vein using a very small needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel wall, therefore causing it to stick together. The procedure requires no anesthesia. Potential side effects include bruising, swelling, and slight skin discoloration.
Over a period of several weeks the vessel turns into a scar which fades away. Eventually, the vessel becomes barely visible or not visible at all!
Laser Vein Therapy is sometimes used as a complement to Sclerotherapy in order to maximize results.
