Sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive procedure that treats spider veins and reticular veins. Your legs are full of veins that contain valves that open and close, returning blood back to the heart. Venous reflux disease, a very common disease, occurs when vein valves become damaged, leading to varicose veins, pains, swelling, leg heaviness and fatigue. Sclerotherapy is a way to combat these damaged veins and valves.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the affected vein which damages the inner wall of the vein. This damage causes the vein to collapse and over time, the collapsed vein is replaced by new tissue. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins and spider veins.
To see results through sclerotherapy you will need multiple sessions.
In most cases getting spider veins treated is purely cosmetic. However, depending on the severity of your spider veins they could cause health risks.
Hypertension (high blood pressure, obesity, pregnancy and sedentary life are the biggest risk factors for those with varicose veins.
If your spider veins or varicose veins bother you, then yes sclerotherapy is right for you.
