Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic treatment for spider veins (dilated blood vessels) of the legs performed by injecting into the affected veins a ‘sclerosing’ solution (either concentrated salt water or a chemical) resulting in their decreased prominence. Most patients require 2 – 4 sessions for optimal results and after each treatment compression stockings must be worn for three weeks and exercise avoided for the first day.
