Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

Love your legs again with sclerotherapy. This effective treatment will vanish those unsightly varicose or spider veins. Make them a thing of the past!

What is Sclerotherapy?

This procedure is very effective in removing varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy uses an injection of sclerosant (solution or foam) into a varicose or spider vein causing it to close.

The difference between varicose and spider veins are size and appearance. Imagine your venous system as a tree, where varicose veins would be a major branch, and spider veins would be the leaves.
