Varicose and Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy is a nonsurgical office procedure that can treat most diseased surface veins. Medication is injected into a vein using a small needle. The medication closes down the vein walls so that they stick together and are gradually reabsorbed by the body. Getting rid of these veins actually improves the circulation and makes the legs healthier.

After having a sclerotherapy procedure, patients are often required to wear measured-to-fit compression stockings. These stockings are part of our complete therapeutic approach to venous disease. The Vein Clinic sells both Sigvaris and Bauerfeind Compression Stockings. A certified fitter takes measurements and helps patients choose the correct stockings according to the recommendations made by the doctor.
