Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a solution into the vein, causing it to scar, and rerouting blood to healthier veins. The treated veins then collapse and are reabsorbed into nearby tissue and fade. Results can be seen within a few weeks, but multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results. LEARN MORE ›
