Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat spider veins. Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin and often have a spider-web-like appearance. They are usually harmless but can be cosmetically undesirable or cause discomfort in some cases.

During sclerotherapy, a sclerosing agent is injected directly into the affected veins using a fine needle. This solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and eventually fade away. Over time, the treated veins are absorbed by the body, and blood is rerouted through healthier veins.

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment, performed in-office at VitalityMDs, that does not require anesthesia. It may take multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve the desired results, depending on the extent of the spider veins and individual response to treatment.

After sclerotherapy, patients may experience mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling at the injection site, but these symptoms usually resolve within a few days. Compression stockings are highly recommended to help improve blood flow, reduce swelling, and to achieve the best possible result.
