The doctors in the Stanford Health Care Dermatologic Surgery program not only have the expertise to help improve the health and appearance of your skin, they are leading the development of new technologies and techniques not yet available at other centers.
What We Offer You for Sclerotherapy

- Expertise using sclerotherapy to treat varicose veins and spider veins.
- Fast treatment with minimal pain and downtime.
- Treatment available in a comfortable, private, easy to reach setting.
What is Sclerotherapy?
During sclerotherapy, we use fine needles to inject unwanted veins with special solutions that cause the veins to swell and close.
As a result, varicose veins, spider veins, and other vascular lesions become lighter in color and less noticeable, with the body safely rerouting blood flow to other healthy vessels. In many cases the unsightly veins completely disappear.
Our sclerotherapy can provide dramatic and long-lasting results. You may be able to fully resume your normal activities two hours after treatment, with no restrictions.
What to Expect from Sclerotherapy
The doctors in our clinics excel at the most advanced uses of sclerotherapy for varicose veins and spider veins.
Sclerotherapy typically causes blood vessels to fade over 6 to 8 weeks. You may need more than one treatment session — our recommendations will depend on:
- Your goals
- Number of veins
- Size of veins
- Location of veins
