Certain spider veins are best removed by microsclerotherapy. The procedure is simple. A tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a medication that irritates the lining of the vein. Over a short time, in response to the irritation, the vein closes and is reabsorbed. The blood from the closed vein is routed to properly working veins, restoring correct circulation.

Microsclerotherapy can deal with spider veins at an early stage to help prevent further unsightliness. You may need one to severaly sclerotherapy session for any vein region and the number of injections varies per session. Generally, normal activities can be resumed after sclerotherapy. Medically prescribed support hose and/or bandages may be needed for one day to severaly weeks after a session to assist in resolution of the veins.

This procedure causes minimal or no discomfort. Bruising and pigmentation may occur after sclerotherapy. If bruising occurs, it usually disappears within one to two weeks. Although pigmentation almost always fades, it can last for several months. Scarring and other complications are rare.
