How does sclerotherapy work?
Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution, called a sclerosant, into the unwanted superficial veins. This solution causes the vein to become irritated and inflamed. The inflammatory process results in closure of the unwanted veins. Next, the body reabsorbs them. Although sclerotherapy uses a needle to inject the solution into the veins, it is minimally painful. We use Asclera, a FDA approved treatment for each of our sclerotherapy treatments.
Reduce Spider Vein Appearance
Sclerotherapy is a widely accepted and safe procedure for the treatment of spider veins. Spider veins are smaller, red or purple blood vessels that are not raised. Like varicose veins, they can be seen through the skin and are most common on the thighs and legs.
