Sclerotherapy: The Spider Vein Treatment Option

Sclerotherapy is one of the most preferred spider vein treatment options. Luckily, if you’re plagued by spider veins or small varicose veins, treating them at Advanced Vein & Laser Center of York & Lancaster has never been easier. Traditional Sclerotherapy has been proven over fifty plus years of use and is a quick, effective way to fade or eliminate spider veins and small varicose veins.

Problem veins are simply injected with an FDA approved sodium tetradecyl sulfate solution. Patients may feel a momentary and mild burning or stinging sensation as the solution irritates and inflames the inside of the treated vein. Once this inflammation causes the walls of the vein to swell, they stick together and the vein’s blood supply is dramatically reduced. An elastic bandage or compression hose is applied after the injection to further enhance healing.

The injections are not very painful and are unlikely to cause scarring at the injection site. Patients can expect treated veins to lose their red or blue color. Many veins shrink so much that they become cosmetically invisible.
