What are “injections” that are given in the veins?

While the video shows you how it looks, there are several questions, which I get asked mainly related to the complications, and which I thought we should discuss.

These “injections” are also known as “sclerotherapy.” These can be done for the very fine veins – “reticular veins / spider veins” or the larger veins “ varicose veins”. The smaller ones (reticular veins) are treated simply with using the medication only.

On the other hand, the larger “varicose veins” are often treated with “foam”. Foam is a mixture of the medication used for sclerotherapy with either air or carbon dioxide.
