spider vein removalSclerotherapy is used to treat problem blood vessels. It involves injecting a solution into unwanted, diseased veins using a very small needle. The solution, or sclerosant, produces an irritation that slowly closes off the vein which then gradually disappears.

The needle used to perform sclerotherapy is about the size of a hair and causes minimal discomfort; most people find this relatively painless. Sclerotherapy is an excellent treatment for certain kinds of varicose veins.

After sclerotherapy, patients report less pain from their veins and that their legs are generally more comfortable, allowing them to return to their normal activities. They also report improved cosmetic appearance in their legs and renewed confidence when wearing skirts or shorts since unsightly veins have been addressed.



Dr. Foley treated my spider veins on my thighs and around my knees. I am 27 years old and was embarrassed to wear shorts or skirts not to mention going to the beach. My legs look great! I feel so much better about myself. Thanks to Dr. Foley and her staff.

I recently had medical sclerotherapy with Dr. Foley for my varicose veins. My legs always ached and were unsightly. They feel so much better now. I can hardly see the blue veins any longer. I’ll just need a few more visits of sclerotherapy and I will be ready for the summer.
