Sclerotherapy is used to treat spider veins or small varicose veins. We use a sclerosing agent and inject it into those tiny veins using a very small needle. This sclerosing agent causes the veins to collapse. The blood flow is then rerouted to the healthier veins in the leg. The collapsed vein is then slowly absorbed by the body and disappears within a matter of weeks.
