|Sclerotherapy is the gold standard for treating spider veins and varicose veins of the legs. A small amount of medication is injected into the vein, which causes it to eventually shrink and dissolve. This method makes the skin look clearer and vanishes the veins. It also decreases the chance of recurrence.
Sclerotherapy is also great for veins that are resistant to laser treatments. This procedure is described as relatively painless with great results.
