Sclerotherapy, or liquid sclerotherapy, is a minimally invasive treatment for spider veins and reticular veins. During the procedure, medicine is injected into the vein. The medicine causes irritation to the vein wall causing it to collapse. The collapsed vein will eventually be reabsorbed by the body and fade away.
Sclerotherapy is performed in an outpatient setting and there is no downtime; however, you should avoid exerting yourself for several days after.
When used to treat spider veins, sclerotherapy is considered a cosmetic procedure and is rarely covered by insurance.
