Sclerotherapy is used to treat spider veins. The solution or foam is injected into the abnormal veins causing them to shrink and disappear. Blood is re-routed into nearby healthy veins. Laser therapy is also used to treat some spider veins. Your physician at the Calcagno & Rossi Vein Treatment Center will decide which individual method will give you the best cosmetic result. Immediately following treatment spider veins may be more prominent than prior to treatment as they become inflamed. This resolves with time as the body absorbs the veins.
The Vein Treatment Center also uses the new exciting new VeinGogh ablation technology or sclerotherapy injections to treat the veins and make them disappear. Also done in the office this procedure requires no anesthesia, and patients can drive themselves, returning immediately to normal activities.
