Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure used to treat spider veins and involves injecting a solution directly into the vein without any local anesthesia. This solution causes the vein to swell and stick together and eventually scar and collapse. Once the collapsed vein in reabsorbed into local tissue, the appearance of spider veins fades. It may take 2-4 months to see the full results.
