What Is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is injection therapy for spider veins and larger surface reticular veins of the leg. It works by chemically inducing an irritation through injection of a sclerosing solution. This solution causes the veins to lessen after they pass through a healing process in which the treated veins thicken and close. Sclerotherapy may be combined with laser treatments. Dr. Effron will consider your situation in order to customize the ideal treatment plan for you.
