Spider veins are treated primarily with sclerotherapy injections. The small surface veins are targeted under direct vision or with magnifying loupes, and injected with a sclerosant which causes the veins to collapse and disappear. The sclerosant is essentially a detergent which causes a reaction within the wall of the veins enabling the veins to collapse.
Ultrasound techniques can be used to help target any feeding veins that are not visible from the surface of the skin that may be contributing to the development of the spider veins. Once the veins are injected, a compression stocking is essential to keep the veins collapsed and ensure the success of the procedure.
Depending on the number of spider veins requiring treatment, a single treatment session or multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired effect.
