Sclerotherapy is the most effective method for the treatment of spider veins and small varicose veins.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure that involves injecting a solution into affected veins to shrink and close them. The different types of sclerotherapy offered include liquid sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. All of these types have been FDA-approved for treating varicose and spider veins. After the sclerotherapy procedure, there is no downtime, and you can resume your usual activities immediately. However, to achieve optimal results, your vein doctor may recommend wearing compression stockings for a variable length of time.
