Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. This procedure involves an injection of a solution that irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse, stick together and form a clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. The injection is performed using a very fine needle, however mild discomfort and slight burning may be experienced.
