Frequently asked questions

What is micro-sclerotherapy?

According to the current guidelines of the German Society of Phlebology, micro-sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice for spider veins and small varicose veins. Sclerotherapy of spider veins and small varicose veins is called micro-sclerotherapy, while the treatment of large varicose veins or all varicose veins with this method is just known as sclerotherapy. The prefix ‘micro’ means that the small veins are treated with particularly fine needles. The aesthetic aspects are of primary importance in the treatment of spider veins.

Micro-sclerotherapy is an outpatient (ambulatory) procedure to eliminate spider veins – without lasers, general anaesthesia, or incisions.
