This is a simple treatment being used to correct unwanted thread veins of the legs.

Thread Veins (also known as spider veins or telangiectasia) of the legs is a common problem, particularly affecting women. Small purple or red veins form anywhere on the leg, from the top of the thigh to the ankle. While these threads veins do not pose any major health problems, they may cause discomfort. Many people who have thread veins find them unsightly and embarrassing, and often attempt to conceal them with clothing or resort to cosmetic cover-ups, the result of which are often disappointing.

How does it work?

Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which a practitioner using a syringe with a tiny needle, injects a small amount of sclerosing agent into the enlarged capillary. The sclerosing agent displaces the blood within the vein, making it blanch or turn white. This solution then causes the vessel to become irritated, and to close, preventing the blood from re-entering the vein.
