To reduce varicose and spider veins using a process called ultra sound guided sclerotherapy,  Dr. Argyrios Tzilinis, vascular surgeon at Physicians Regional Medical Group, uses an injection solution called Sotradecol on patient Phyllis Cusumano that will cause the vessel walls to be damaged. Over time the body will reabsorb the damaged veins and heal much like a bruise. The Process takes less than 30 minutes. It may require a second session for larger, more prominent veins.
