Many men and women develop leg veins. They may be purplish or red thin spider veins, larger blue reticulate veins or bulging varicose veins. Dr. Propperova treats spider and reticulate veins with sclerotherapy. This involves injecting a solution into the vein with a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vein, the walls stick together and blood cannot enter the vein. Blood is re-routed to the healthy venous system and the vein is then absorbed over time. Many veins are injected during a treatment session but usually several sessions are required, depending on the size and number of veins.
