- Sclerotherapy, often called spider vein treatment, involves an injection that reduces the appearance of vascular blemishes, spider veins, and broken blood vessels.
- The injection causes irritation and inflammation inside the vein and leads to clotting and closure of the vein.
- One brand of sclerosing agent, Asclera, was approved by the FDA in 2010.
