Spider Vein Treatment – Sclerotherapy

They may be caused by genetics, hormonal shifts, occupations requiring prolonged sitting or standing, pregnancy, or weight fluctuation. They are safely and efficiently treated through injections.
What Is Spider Vein Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that treats varicose veins and spider veins. It involves injecting chemicals, known as sclerosing agents, into damaged veins.
