Sclerotherapy effectively treats dilated capillaries and spider veins on the legs. It's often considered the treatment of choice as it is a safe, effective, and clinically proven technique. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a sterile solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to dissolve, forcing blood to reroute through healthier surrounding veins.
The treatment is preceded with 3 to 6 carboxytherapy sessions to enhance, strengthen and restore healthy vascular function in the surrounding tissue. This ensures that blood-flow is redirected to healthy, strong veins once the sclerotherapy session has caused the damaged varicose/spider veins to collapse.(*)
