Injection sclerotherapy

This procedure involves injecting a sclerosant solution into varicose veins.

This treats the inside of the vein wall which is then compressed with a bandage causing the walls to stick together.

This technique is usually only used for smaller thread veins and spider veins and should only be performed by an expert.

Some experts claim to obtain extremely good results using this technique, although it is important to establish that there are no underlying varicose veins which may cause the thread veins or spider veins to return.
