Sclerotherapy using hypertonic saline is a treatment option for spider veins of the legs. The hypertonic saline solution is injected directly into the affected areas, often over a period of 1-5 sessions. Most patients use compression therapy (support stockings) following their treatment sessions to achieve maximal results.
For extensive varicose veins we recommend consultation with a vascular surgeon. Excellent results can be achieved with newer technologies such as endoscopic laser vein ablation performed by the vascular surgeon and his/her team.
