Do you have red, blue, or purple veins on your legs that look like webs or branches? These spider veins are small, damaged veins under the skin. They will not return to normal without treatment. Fortunately, sclerotherapy has been used for decades for effective spider vein removal. This treatment can help you achieve smooth, clear skin you feel comfortable with. 

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is an injectable spider vein treatment. It is injected directly into your spider veins, closing them and stopping blood flow. It is considered the “gold standard” of spider vein treatments due to its safety and effectiveness, even after decades of use. Sclerotherapy is a quick, in-office treatment with little to no downtime and excellent results.

Spider veins are a common cosmetic issue for many people. These small, damaged veins can make you self-conscious about the appearance of your legs. Sclerotherapy offers a way to eliminate spider veins with just a few injections.

What is Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins?

Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment for spider veins and small varicose veins. It uses a compound called a sclerosant that hardens and damages the vein walls. This damage causes the vein to collapse, stopping blood flow. Blood will easily divert to healthier veins. As the “gold standard” treatment for spider veins, sclerotherapy is safe and widely used.

While not harmful, they are a cosmetic concern for many people.

Spider veins are small, damaged veins that can appear on the surface of the legs or face. Mostly cosmetic in nature, they often form over time due to a number of factors including genetics, age, hormonal changes or from having a job that requires very long periods of time on your feet. Upon being diagnosed with spider veins, your vein specialist will mostly likely prescribe a treatment protocol of sclerotherapy injections – the gold standard in spider vein treatment. It is one of the most effective and lowest-risk cosmetic procedures available, and anesthesia is not required. So how much will this treatment cost?
