Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a procedure which uses tiny needle injections to collapse and erase unsightly blood vessels appearing on the skin's surface which are commonly known as spider veins.

The procedure is performed in our offices and injects a concentrated salt solution  into the blood vessel using a ultra-fine needle. Over a few weeks, the vessel turns into scar tissue and fades, often becoming invisible.

Side-effects may include slight cramping, swelling, bruising or skin discoloration. These effects generally are easily treatable and temporary.
