Sclerotherapy is used to treat fine spider veins of the legs. The physician or Physician Assistant injects a solution directly into the blood vessel with a very fine needle. This solution irritates the lining of the vessel causing it to eventually collapse and be absorbed by the body.
We have researched laser therapy to treat spider veins on the legs. It is our expert opinion that the tried and true results achieved through years of experience and refined technique in the injection method far exceed the results obtained with laser therapy.
Sclerotherapy requires an initial evaluation by the physician or the Physician Assistant.
