As they age many people may encounter unsightly varicose or spider veins. Weakened vessels and poor circulation are the culprit, causing darkened and pronounced veins. At her Miami area practice, Dr. Waibel performs the most common treatment for unappealing leg veins, sclerotherapy. In this procedure a fine needle injects sclerosant into the larger veins first and then the smaller ones. This chemical irritates the lining of the vessel and causes it to become inflamed and harden and then dissolve. Relatively, quick and easy sclerotherapy can give you smooth, even toned legs with one or just a few treatments and no anesthesia is required.
