If you sometimes avoid showing your legs because you have spider veins — those small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and ankles — you are not alone. It’s estimated that at least half of all women are bothered by this common cosmetic problem.
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive medical procedure done by injecting the unwanted veins with a sclerosing solution which causes the target vein to immediately shrink and then dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein. The downtime is minimal, in comparison to an invasive varicose vein surgery.
Prior to sclerotherapy, you will have an initial consultation with our nurse who will decide if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
