In fact, Sclerotherapy is on of the most effective and options available today for treating spider or varicose veins.
During the procedure a sterile foam is injected by a very fine needle into the patients affected veins. The foam moves throughout the veins and pushes the blood into different channels. While there are immediate results, patients usually need a few treatments before the veins finally seal themselves off and the blood relocates permanently to a new channel. After the blood have moved itself into new veins the old varicose vein will diminish.
As mentioned, as soon as the treatment is finished the patient can go back to their everyday tasks. Sometimes a slight sting will come witht the treatment but nothing that should impare your daily activities. The procedure takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes and can be offered inside of a doctors office.
