Sclerotherapy is a common treatment for both spider veins and varicose veins. The physician uses a needle to inject a liquid chemical into the vein. The chemical causes the vein walls to swell, stick together thus stopping the inflow of blood. Eventually in a few weeks veins should fade. This treatment does not require anesthesia and can be performed in the physician office. The VeinEsthetics Clinic in Richmond, Kentucky provides comprehensive sclerotherapy treatments.

Some patients go back to work after being treated. Patients are told that they will look worse before they look better. With sclerotherapy, there is always bruising and clotting of treated veins. Some people clear up in 1- 2 treatments, but most people require 5-6 treatments. The same vein may need to be treated more than once. Treatments are usually done every 4 to 6 weeks. You may be asked to wear graduated compression stockings after sclerotherapy to help with healing and decrease swelling.
