Small varicose veins and spider veins are treated by Sclerotherapy. A tiny needle is used to administer a series of injections that contain small amounts of a sterile solution into the vein. Because the needle is so small, patients do not need any anaesthesia and usually feel little pain. The solution displaces the blood within the diseased vein and causes the vein to collapse. The treated vein is absorbed and eventually becomes nearly invisible.
Although the same vein may require multiple injections over time, each session of this injection procedure can be performed in our clinic in less than 30 minutes. The total number of veins treated during one session will depend on the size and location of the veins as well as the overall medical health of the patient. Any follow up sessions will be scheduled at least four weeks apart so that the results of the previous treatment can be accurately evaluated.
