Sclerotherapy involves a salt solution injected into the affected areas, which causes the veins to collapse. Sclerotherapy may take several treatments, and the injections are slightly painful. Sclerotherapy effectively treats spider and varicose veins. It is usually the treatment of choice for small visible veins.
The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar and forces blood to reroute through other veins. The collapsed veins are reabsorbed into body tissues and eventually fade.
Spider veins occur when tiny vessels gather below the surface of your skin. These veins can be red, purple, or blue discoloration in the shape of a spider web. They are usually small but are noticeable. These veins are not dangerous to your health, and treatments are done for cosmetic reasons.
Spider veins are common on the thighs, ankles, and calves. Spider veins often run in families, some due to pregnancy, weight gain, or birth control pills. Spider veins usually do not cause problems but might cause mild and dull discomfort or burning sensations.
Spider veins can be permanent or disappear on their own after several months. Disappearing spider veins is true of pregnancy-induced veins or certain medications that have caused spider veins.
