- 1.1 What is the Procedure? Spider vein treatment, also called sclerotherapy, is a safe minimally invasive procedure performed to reduce the appearance of spider veins. It involves injecting a saline-based solution directly into visible veins using a very fine needle. This solution irritates the walls of the vein and causes them to collapse and stick together – when this happens, the vein is re-absorbed by the body and the appearance of the veins is dramatically reduced.

- 1.4 Health Benefits of Spider Vein Treatment
Individuals suffering from spider veins may benefit from undergoing a spider vein treatment. Spider veins are small, dilated, and red blood vessels scattered across the skin and can be quite visually unappealing. Although they are rarely painful, they can cause significant discomfort and localized health problems including leg heaviness, itching, burning, and restlessness.
