What is Sclerotherapy?


Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment to help eliminate unwanted spider veins. At our clinic, based in the greater Toronto, Ontario area, we use a basic saline and sugar solution that is then injected into the small veins with a tiny needle.

When will I see results from Sclerotherapy?

Over a few weeks, the unwanted veins fade and disappear with Sclerotherapy. Of course, like with any other medical treatment, results will very by patient. The average patient requires 2-4 Sclerotherapy sessions, however this may vary depending on desired results and the patient’s medical history.

What is Sclerotherapy recovery like?

Although recovery varies from patient to patient, Sclerotherapy is a fairly noninvasive treatment that doesn’t require any bed rest or pause from your normal routine. Compression stockings are recommended to wear for a few weeks post treatment.

Lasers can also be used effectively to eliminate spider veins on the leg by pulsing along the vessel with high-intensity light. This nonsurgical treatment is not only a widely-used and safe solution to cosmetically treat these veins, but also offers a wide range of additional benefits.

Small spider veins may disappear immediately after treatment, while larger spider veins may darken and take several weeks to fade and disappear.
