Sclerotherapy For Varicose and Spider Veins
Spider veins, are those tiny purple and red blood vessels found most commonly on the thighs or lower legs of women.
Varicose veins are larger. They can appear raised with a bluish color and can become quite painful. Although spider veins and varicose veins carry blood, they are not part of the venous valve system. Your spider veins and varicose veins can be eliminated permanently through a simple office procedure called Sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure whereby a chemical is injected into smaller veins, which damage the inner lining and produce a clot. As the clot is reabsorbed, the vessel is permanently obliterated.
