Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins can be caused by a variety of factors including heredity, pregnancy or weight fluctuation, long periods of sitting or standing, and hormonal changes. They appear most commonly on the thighs, calves and ankles.
Sclerotherapy can be effective in eliminating or improving the appearance of spider veins. A sclerosing solution is injected into the vein, which irritates the vein and causes it to collapse over time and fade away. This procedure can be performed in an office setting, is minimally invasive and relatively painless.
