Sclerotherapy is another effective treatment for leg spider veins. During the treatment, a concentrated salt solution is injected into the spider veins, resulting in damage to the inside wall of the vein and reduction of the appearance of the veins. Several treatments are necessary to achieve the desired cosmetic result. Compression stockings must be worn for two weeks after the procedure to achieve optimal results. Sclerotherapy treatments may be performed as often as once a month. A dermatologist can determine whether gentle YAG or sclerotherapy would be most appropriate for your client.
