Sclerotherapy - Get rid of spider veins for your legs


Sclerotherapy is used to treat small spider veins in the upper and lower legs with a saline solution. The solution irritates the walls of the vessels and eventually your body absorbs them and disposes of it.

Depending on how many areas need to be treated will determine how many treatments you may need. Limited sun exposure Is preferred before and after having treatment for 3 months. It will take about 3 months for your body to completely rid itself of the veins that are being treated. Compression stockings are recommended post treatment to wear for 72 hours consistently. Walking as much as possible afterwards is great for circulation but pounding exercises such as aerobics and running are not recommended.
