What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin veins that appear close to the surface of the skin. They are usually red, blue or purple in colour and look like a spider’s web or tree branch. Spider veins can occur anywhere on the body but are most commonly found on the legs and face.
Spider veins can be caused by a variety of factors including genetics, pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain and prolonged periods of standing or sitting. They are often seen as an aesthetic issue but can also cause discomfort such as aching, burning, heaviness or throbbing in the affected area.
How Are Spider Veins Diagnosed?
Spider veins are usually diagnosed during a physical examination. Your doctor may use a hand-held device called a transilluminator to help them identify any abnormal blood vessels beneath your skin. In some cases, they may order an ultrasound to get a better view of the affected area and check for any underlying circulatory issues.
Treatment Options for Spider Veins
The most common treatment option for spider veins is sclerotherapy. This involves injecting a solution into the vein which causes it to shrink and eventually disappear over time. Other treatments include laser therapy and surgery. Each treatment has its own risks and benefits so it’s important to discuss these with your doctor before deciding which one is right for you.
Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive, affordable treatment for spider veins, providing long-lasting results with quick recovery.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat spider veins, which are small, superficial veins that appear red, blue, or purple and often twist and turn. It involves injecting a solution directly into the affected vein, causing it to collapse and eventually disappear. The solution used in sclerotherapy is usually a salt-based solution called sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS).
The procedure is typically performed by an experienced physician in an outpatient setting. During treatment, the doctor will inject the STS solution into the affected vein using a very fine needle. Once injected, the solution causes the walls of the vein to swell and stick together, blocking blood flow through the vein. Over time, the vein will shrink and eventually fade away.
The entire process usually takes about 15 minutes per session depending on how many veins need to be treated. In most cases, multiple treatments are needed for optimal results. After each treatment session, patients may experience some mild discomfort such as redness or swelling around the injection site that usually resolves within one to two days.
Benefits of Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy has been used for many years to treat spider veins with great success. It offers several benefits over other treatments such as laser therapy or surgery including:
- Non-invasive – since sclerotherapy does not involve any cutting or removal of tissue it is considered one of the least invasive treatments available
- Affordable – sclerotherapy is generally more affordable than other procedures
- Quick recovery – patients can expect to return to their regular activities immediately after treatment
- Long-lasting results – sclerotherapy can provide long-lasting results if done correctly
Overall, sclerotherapy is a safe and effective way to reduce or eliminate spider veins without having to undergo surgery or other invasive treatments.
Benefits of Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is a popular treatment option for those who suffer from spider veins due to its effectiveness, minimal side effects, and convenience. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in the comfort of your doctor’s office or clinic and requires little to no downtime.
Minimally Invasive Procedure
The procedure involves injecting a solution into the affected veins which causes them to collapse and eventually fade away. The solution used is generally a salt solution or an irritant that causes the vein walls to swell and stick together, so blood can no longer flow through them. This helps to reduce the visibility of the veins and improve overall appearance.
Unlike other treatments for spider veins such as laser therapy, sclerotherapy produces results quickly and effectively. Most patients will begin to see improvement within 3-4 weeks after their initial treatment. In some cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results but this can vary depending on the severity of the condition.
Minimal Side Effects
Another benefit of sclerotherapy is that it carries minimal side effects compared to other treatments such as laser therapy or surgery. Common side effects include mild bruising, swelling, itching, redness, or discomfort at the injection site; however these usually resolve within a few days with little to no intervention.
Finally, sclerotherapy is often more cost effective than other treatments such as laser therapy or surgery. Since it does not require any anesthesia or sedation, it is often cheaper than other procedures which may require additional fees for these services. Additionally, since it does not require any downtime or recovery time, there are fewer costs associated with missed work or activities due to recovery time associated with other treatments.

We offer sclerotherapy as a treatment option for spider veins. This treatment is minimally invasive and can be done in-office with no downtime. Our team of experts are highly trained and experienced in the use of sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of spider veins.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the affected area to close off the veins and reduce their visibility. The solution used in sclerotherapy is usually a liquid form of sodium chloride, which is safe and has minimal side effects. After the injection, the vein will gradually fade away over time.
Benefits of sclerotherapy include:
The procedure does not require any incisions or general anaesthesia, making it a minimally invasive procedure with minimal risk of complications.
Patients can resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure with no downtime required.
Results from sclerotherapy can be seen within weeks after the procedure and will continue to improve over time as the veins are gradually absorbed by the body.
