Treatment for spider veins in the legs.


Varicose and spider veins are a problem that many people face, especially as they age. Weakened vessels and poor circulation cause darkened and pronounced veins which can be unsightly and embarrassing. The most common treatment for unappealing leg veins is Sclerotherapy. At our San Diego area practice Dr. Nowak performs sclerotherapy in the office with no anesthesia required.

Sclerotherapy is the “gold standard” and is preferred over laser for eliminating large spider veins (telangiectasiae), reticular (blue veins) and smaller varicose leg veins (up to the size of a pencil).

Unlike a laser, the sclero solution also closes the “feeder veins” under the skin that are causing the spider veins to form, thereby making a recurrence of the spider veins in the treated area less likely.

A fine needle injects sclerosant into the larger veins first and then the smaller ones. This chemical irritates the lining of the vessel and causes it to become inflamed and harden and then dissolve. The process takes about 15 to 30 minutes. Most people don’t experience much pain with this procedure, however a slight burning sensation is common during the procedure and just after.

Support hose are helpful after the procedure and proper circulation is advised for optimal results. Depending on the needs of the patient, just one or several treatments may be required.
