|Do I need to have surgery for my spider veins?|
No. Spider veins are those small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue, and purple veins that usually appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles. All that is needed is an office visit. Sclerotherapy is an injection process that is used to treat spider veins.
This procedure is quick, lasting 15-45 minutes (depending upon the number of vessels to be treated) in the office with very little discomfort. There are no restrictions following treatment. You are immediately able to return to work, regular activities, even exercise if you would like.
