What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is rather simple and performed right in the office. The treatment involves the administration of a sclerosing agent that essentially closes the vein in which it is injected. This allows the blood in the vein to be redirected to a larger, healthier vein. It is safe and approved by the FDA for effective treatment of spider veins.
What are the benefits of sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy has many benefits. The treatment is virtually painless, and is permanent. However, new veins may form and this is always a possibility to be considered. Patients will enjoy treatment with minimal downtime and will enjoy the advantages of looking and feeling their best without veins that are uncomfortable and itchy.
