# 1 in Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment
In this procedure, your doctor injects varicose veins with a foam solution that scars and closes those veins. In a few weeks, treated varicose veins should fade. Most patients feel the benefits immediately with less pain and swelling.
Although the same vein may need to be injected more than once, sclerotherapy is safe and effective if done correctly. Sclerotherapy doesn't require anesthesia and can be done in your doctor's office.
Some veins can not be treated with Foam Sclerotherapy and these can be treated with Laser fibers. This is very effective and just like foam treatment the varicose veins will fade. Most patients feel relief almost immediately. This is also an office based procedure.
Spider Vein Treatment
Many people have these veins and they do not like how they look. Sometimes they can be treated by themselves with injection of a foam into them. However many times they represent a more worrisome underlying vein disease. In this case if treated by themselves they will get worse. There may be underlying veins that need to be treated first. The only way to know is to have the experts at our vein clinic do an evaluation ultrasound of your veins. Call today to make an appointment to see if you need this medically necessary treatment.

Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins. Any superficial vein may become varicosed, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs. That's because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body.
For many people, varicose veins and spider veins — a common, mild variation of varicose veins — are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort. Sometimes varicose veins lead to more-serious problems.
Spider Veins and Reticular veins
Spider veins, or thread veins, are smaller than varicose veins. They are usually red. They may look like tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can usually be seen under the skin, but they do not make the skin bulge out like varicose veins do.
