Video Overview

Which is the better treatment for spider veins: sclerotherapy or laser treatments? We feel the sclerotherapy is a more complete treatment for spider veins. This is due to the fact that we can inject the spider veins as well as the reticular veins which are the light blue discolored visible veins directly under the spiders. Treating both of those give you a much more complete treatment and a better result.
