Sclerotherapy is the most common and effective treatment for spider veins. It is the process of injecting a sclerosing agent that irritates the lining of the vein walls and causes them to stick together, scar, and eventually disappear. This treatment is relatively painless and has few serious side effects.
The San Francisco Vein Center is run by Dr. Aquino who is a board certified vascular surgeon. She is an expert in the treatment of vascular diseases such as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), aortic aneurysmal disease, carotid stenosis, dialysis access, and complex venous and arterial ulcers.
