Sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice for the removal of spider veins and smaller varicose veins. Veins are injected with a sterile chemical sclerant, which causes the blemishes to fade away completely.Since sclerotherapy is minimally-invasive and almost pain-free, it can be performed in our clinic. Anesthesia is not needed and complications are infrequent. Although sclerotherapy is very safe for spider veins, it is considered to be so only when administered by a professional.Book Consultation
