Day Eleven: Leg Vein Treatment / Sclerotherapy

The eleventh procedure we want to share with you can help make small varicose and spider veins on the legs disappear – usually after just one visit. Be sure to consult your dermatologist before deciding on this procedure.

Small varicose and spider veins on the legs can be an indication of deeper circulation problems or simply a cosmetic nuisance. After a short consultation with a physician trained in the study of treating veins (phlebology), small superficial veins can be injected with a substance that causes them to collapse and disappear. Occasionally, more than one session is needed. Sessions cost between $300 and $600. Winter is an ideal time for this, since a faint brown discoloration can remain after treatment but should be long gone by the time spring rolls around.
