Sclerotherapy

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy safely and effectively treats varicose and spider (thread) veins.

A solution, called a sclerosant, is injected directly into your vein. The solution irritates the lining of your vein so that it expands, sticks together and forms a scar that closes off your vein. Your blood is then forced to reroute to healthier veins. The vein collapses, is reabsorbed into local tissue, and fades within a few weeks.
