Sclerotherapy is the process by which a saline solution is injected into the affected veins, causing them to gradually disappear. It is minimally invasive and typically inexpensive. Endovenous laser treatment utilizes a small laser fiber, which is inserted into the vein to deliver pulses of light, causing the vein to collapse. Ambulatory phlebectomy is not right for all patients, but can provide long-lasting relief from varicose veins.
