Say Goodbye to Spider Veins: Affordable Treatment Options Available


  • Conventional: This is the most basic option, which involves a tiny needle to inject a medical solution.
  • Foam Sclerotherapy: The medical solution is mixed with air to create a foamy substance. It is used on more prominent, profound veins.
  • Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy: For deeper veins that are harder to see, ultrasound is used to locate the affected vein to inject the solution precisely.


There are several reasons it is a popular choice for many people looking to remove spider veins. The treatment experience for sclerotherapy is relatively quick and simple. It takes 45 minutes to an hour, is done in the office, and you don’t need anesthesia. A topical anesthetic, subcutaneous lidocaine, is used to numb the injection area, making the procedure painless. Afterward, you may experience mild pain for 1-2 days, which can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. You can resume regular activity 1-2 days after the procedure. The procedure is usually performed in the doctor’s office and does not require any anesthesia.


The results of sclerotherapy are clinically proven to be safe and effective for most patients. Expect gradual results over several weeks as your body removes closed veins naturally. For some people, varicose or spider veins may reappear and have to be treated a few times before they are completely eliminated.


The cost of treating spider veins will vary depending on the number of veins treated and the type of sclerotherapy used. It is generally considered a cosmetic procedure, so insurance may not cover it. However, many providers offer financing options to help make the treatment more affordable.

Spider veins can be unsightly and uncomfortable, but sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment option. The procedure is quick, simple, and can give you nicer legs in as little as 45 minutes, and with the expected gradual results, you will see a significant improvement over several weeks. If you’re considering sclerotherapy, it’s important to speak with a specialist to determine the best course of action for your specific case.
