Sclerotherapy is a procedure whereby a solution is injected into the veins that are causing problems. The solution irritates the veins, leading to their collapse. They eventually scar over. This forces the blood that was passing through the veins to take a new path and travel to veins that are healthier. With time, the veins that collapsed and scarred over are absorbed by the body and the appearance of the veins gradually disappears. Sclerotherapy is a popular spider vein treatment in Cincinnati and elsewhere, and for good reason.
