Sclerotherapy, or “injection therapy”, is the most common treatment Nichols M.D. uses for the elimination of spider veins on the legs. In this treatment, a mild chemical solution, formulated to irritate the walls of the spider veins, is injected directly into the targeted area. This solution causes the veins to collapse which is then reabsorbed and blood is re-routed to a healthy vein. This will help in restoring proper venous circulation in that area. It may take a few treatments, depending upon the size and the quantity of spider veins involved. The number of treatments is individualized upon the discretion of our Board Certified professionals.
*Individual results will vary.
