Sclerotherapy is a longstanding treatment that uses injections of specialized solutions to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins.

What is the best treatment for large varicosities?

Depends where they are. Endo-venous laser ablation is the best treatment for varicose greater saphenous veins, located in your upper inner thigh. The lesser saphenous vein, located behind your knee may also be treated via endo-venous laser ablation. Others may be treated by foam or non-foam sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy (surgical removal). Sclerotherapy is my preferred technique as it is scarless.
