If there is an involvement of the deep venous system, you may be recommended to go through additional procedure before this one.

The technique used to treat spider vein called "sclerotherapy" which means to make something harder. A very small needle is used in order to inject a special solution called a sclerosant inside the veins. The solution causes the vein to swell which eventually stops the blood flow inside it. Standard procedure usually lasts from 15-45 minutes. Deeper vein treated first. After cleaning the surface with alcohol the doctor injects the solution. A pressure is applied to the area along with gentle massage to prevent bleeding and to get more effective spreading of the sclerosant. It is possible that some vein need more then one injection to close.

Every procedure has its ricks. This one includes bleeding, blood clots formation, infection, allergic reaction the solution and injury to the skin that may leave a permanent scar. Changes in skin pigmentation can also occur. A new network of "spiders" may appear around the treated area which may need additional treatment.

After the treatment you`ll have to wear tight pressure bandage for 72 hours to prevent bleeding and clotting. The treated area may look reddish and swollen with red dots from the injections. These will disappear after a month. There are no limitations for daily activities, although you`ll be advised to avoid long standing and jogging. You also encouraged walking to prevent blood clots.

After a month or so you can undergo another treatment if this is necessary. It is important to understand that only the visible veins are treated. The treatment doesn`t change your venous network properties, therefore, after a while, new veins may appear.
