So how do you get rid of spider veins? Here at our medspa, you can get spider vein treatment in Scottsdale with our Sclerotherapy treatment. What is Sclerotherapy? Sclerotherapy is a treatment that involves collapsing/cauterizing the spider vein. The treatment is a saline solution that causes the lining of the blood vessel to be irritated and then ultimately causes the blood vessel to collapse. As time goes on the vessel is absorbed into the body’s bloodstream and then disappears. You’ll go back to how your skin looked before it was overrun with spider veins!
