This is the most common method of treating spider veins in the legs, ankles and face. During treatment, a sclerosing solution is injected into the affected veins. The injection irritates the inside of the veins, and overtime, the vein will collapse and fade from view.
If you have multiple spider veins, the treatment will require multiple injections to collapse all of the veins. Dr. Diamantis will use a bright light and magnification device to ensure maximum precision while injecting the sclerosing solution.
After treatment, the area may be dressed with compression tape or stockings, or an elastic wrap for a period of time.
