Spider Vein Treatment
Spider vein therapy (sclerotherapy) is for people seeking to treat spider veins that may have developed for a variety of reasons, including heredity and pregnancy.
Spider veins are tiny red, blue and purple blood vessels commonly found in the legs. Spider veins may appear individually or in a cluster that resembles a bruise. They can be distinguished from varicose veins which are more prominent, appear bluish-green and sometimes bulge through the skin.
Sclerotherapy uses a solution that is injected into the spider veins, causing them to shrink and disappear. The procedure, performed in our office, is virtually painless and does not entail any downtime. You can return to work or your day’s other activities immediately after leaving the office.
Please Request a Consultation to learn more about sclerotherapy treatments and other medical-grade skin care procedures available at Davis & Pyle Plastic Surgery.

Sclerotherapy introduces a special solution into the targeted veins via a tiny, fine needle. The solution brings about the collapse of the vein, damaging the lining inside the vein causing the blood to clot. Once this happens, the treated veins are gradually absorbed by the body.
The most common side effects include tenderness, redness, itching and swelling at the injection site(s). Bruising is also a potential side effect. A complete list of side effects will be outlined during your consultation.
