Can I treat spider veins at home?

The short answer is no. The gold standard for the treatment of spider veins is injection sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is the injection of chemical solutions into the vein causing that vein to collapse. In some cases surface laser or surface radio frequency may be appropriate. These procedures are best done by the experienced vein specialist.
