This is a particular problem in the warmer months when skirts and shorts are preferred. Treating these veins can be very easy though using a simple process known as sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy treatment can be used in varicose vein treaments and spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is a safe non surgical method of treating spider veins and reticular (or feeder) veins on the legs. It involves injecting a saline solution into the incompetent leg vessels in order to create inflammation so that the bodies own immune response dissolves the vessels. Sclerotherapy is very effective at removing incompetent vessels and has been used clinically for over 100 years.

For Spider vein treatments, it can take fewer sessions if the veins are less severe however you can rest assured that this non surgical method of leg vein removal will have your legs back in fine condition ready to show off for the summer months.
