Microsclerotherapy is the treatment of spider veins using a sclerosant liquid or foam which is injected into the small veins, causing them to close. A very fine needle is used to inject the sclerosant into the tiny spider veins. A provider injects the veins with the assistance a magnifying light which allows better visualisation of the vessels. In the past vascular laser was used to treat spider veins, and although it worked very well on facial veins, the greater pressures in the leg meant it wasn’t effective in treating leg spider veins. We no longer offer this treatment. Microsclerotherapy is an internationally proven technique and the gold standard in the treatment of spider veins.
