The treatment of very superficial red and blue veins (spider vein removal) has been a popular treatment since the 1930’s. A salt solution is injected through a very fine needle directly into the vein. The sclerosant is injected straight into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel and causes the vein to spasm which in turn heals shut on itself. At this point, you may experience a mild cramping, and discomfort for one to two minutes.

Causes of Spider Veins
Many things can contribute to the formation of leg veins such as, hormones, pregnancy, hereditary influences and injuries. Lasers can help some minor red matting on the legs, but the gold standard for eliminating the red and blue veins in actually to inject them. After the procedure, the treated areas are often red and swollen and can take several days for the inflammation to go down. We always encourage walking after the treatment. For best results, high step aerobics and weights should be avoided.
