Sclerotherapy is the injection of a solution into offending veins, such as “spider veins” and even some small varicose veins. This procedure is performed in the office, is relatively painless, and may be repeated as necessary to remove the appearance of unsightly varicosities. The injection is limited to veins less than 3 mm in diameter and is generally not as successful in larger veins. Complications are rare and a careful approach to sclerotherapy has resulted in complications of much less than 1%. Dr. Esses has been treating spider veins for over 20 years and will make sure you are more than happy with your results.
