Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is an injection of a medical solution into varicose and spider veins leading to collapse and subsequent reabsorption of the veins. You can use this procedure for spider veins, called cosmetic sclerotherapy, or for larger veins. To treat larger veins, we use ultrasound to guide us as we inject sequential locations along the veins. The injected medication has been formulated to appear as a white color under ultrasound, which allows us to identify the proper injection of the sclerotherapy into targeted veins.
