Sclerotherapy is a recognized treatment for unwanted blood vessels on the legs. A sclerosing solution is injected with a very fine needle into the unwanted blood vessels. Larger vessels are treated with an injectable agent. The irritating solution causes the lining of the vein to become inflamed and the walls to adhere to each other thereby preventing blood from flowing into the vein. Over a period of weeks, the vessel normally closes off permanently preventing further influx of blood into the vein. Call 780 – 464 – 0123 ext. 3 for more information.
