Whether you call them varicose or spider veins, there is no denying that these markings on your legs and thigh are unsightly. Fortunately, there is a safe and effective way to get rid of these veins.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which a special irritant solution called a sclerosing agent is injected directly into these veins. In just a short time – days or weeks in most cases – the veins turn white and fade away.
This form of treatment is generally intended for medium-sized blood vessels, usually anything larger than three millimeters. Sclerotherapy is almost entirely pain-free and involves little recovery time.
If you’d like to get rid of spider veins through sclerotherapy, Dr. Adam Summers and his staff at the Maryland Plastic Surgery are always ready to help. Summers and MPS have perfected sclerotherapy, promising lasting results with little downtime.
