Sclerotherapy is a very safe, effective cosmetic dermatology treatment that is used to shrink or eradicate spider veins. While spider veins may not cause any physical symptoms, many people consider them to be an unsightly skin issue and want to have them removed by a dermatologist.
Sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins is quick, simple, and relatively painless. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, dermatologists consider it extremely low-risk. During the procedure, your dermatologist will inject hypertonic saline or Asclera directly into your vein using a very tiny needle. The solution injected is completely safe, and will cause your spider veins to shrink and fade in a matter of weeks.
