Sclerotherapy/Spider Vein Removal
Sclerotherapy is an effective FDA-approved treatment for the safe removal of unsightly spider veins. Spider veins are often found on your legs and look like small, thin, spiky tree branches. A simple in-office treatment can collapse your spider veins so that they can’t be seen through the skin.

How Sclerotherapy Works
Sclerotherapy is a quick in-office treatment for spider veins. A liquid solution or chemical irritant is injected directly into the offending vein. This causes the vein walls to seal shut and the vein to collapse so that blood will not flow through it. After a few weeks, the body will flush out the damaged blood vessels and the spider vein will completely fade from view.
Candidates for Sclerotherapy
- Are in good general health
- Are bothered by the appearance of spider veins on their legs
- Have a genetic or family history of weak veins or vein problems, obesity, or other risk factors for spider veins, such as sun overexposure or a sedentary lifestyle
Do I Need Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy has cosmetic benefits and is not medically necessary. People who undergo sclerotherapy for spider veins are bothered by the appearance of red or blue spiky spider veins on their legs. If you feel self-conscious about spider veins on your legs, sclerotherapy is an excellent treatment with a high success rate. None of the surrounding tissues are damaged during treatment, and the collapsed vein does not harm the body. Blood will naturally redirect into other veins, and your body will continue to function normally. Your legs will appear more attractive and more even in tone and color.
Recovery after sclerotherapy is quick and relatively painless. Patients should wear compression pantyhose for a full week after treatment to keep the vein compressed. The blood will redirect into nearby healthy veins, and within a few weeks the spider vein will collapse from view.
