Sclerotherapy is a treatment for spider veins (red, blue or purple) and small varicose veins or reticular veins. Newer agents such as Sotradecol and Polidochanol are much more effective than saline injections. Large areas particularly on the legs can be treated very effectively at a reasonable cost. Slerotherapy may also be used to eliminate large unsightly veins on the hands and feet.
