Spider veins – sometimes referred to as varicose veins – are common in both women and men and are considered a general part of aging. They’re a sign that your veins aren’t functioning properly, and it’s generally advisable to treat them in order to prevent them from getting worse.
One of the most common and effective treatment options for removing unwanted spider veins is an injectable procedure known as Sclerotherapy. The procedure causes a gradual fading of the treated vessels over a period of several weeks to several months. The majority of patients will see significant improvement however new veins may form over time and maintenance treatments may be required.
