What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces the physical discomfort and appearance of varicose veins, or the swollen, raised and discolored veins that appear on the surface of the skin. While sclerotherapy is typically used to treat varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and feet, this treatment can also be used to reduce discoloration and improve comfort in the calves, ankles, thighs, and face. Dr. Downey or Dr. Bullocks simply injects a solution of sclerosing agents into the affected veins to produce your desired results.
