Sclerotherapy is a technique designed to close unsightly spider veins on legs, face or other body areas. Several substances can be injected to cause this outcome. While providing identical results and downtime, detergents/foaming agents are generally considered painless while hypertonic saline injections are somewhat painful. Sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of larger spider veins. It is often followed by sclerolaser treatments which resolve extremely fine vessels that did not take to sclerotherapy.

Depending on the examination, ultrasound may be necessary to exclude reflux, which may hamper treatment success. If reflux is detected, a consultation with a vascular surgeon may be necessary to remove underlying varicosities.
