What liquid is injected during spider vein treatment?

I saw a video of a doctor injecting medicine into a woman's leg and the veins completely disappeared on the spot. What's in those injections and where could I get some?

The injection you saw on the video was probably a salt solution. I had this procedure done recently at my dermatologist’s office, and it worked really well. The solution makes the spider vein collapse and then turn into scar tissue. I still have some scar tissue, but the doctor says that will go away eventually. It looks a lot better than the ugly spider veins that I had before. You should talk to a doctor to see if you are able to get this procedure done. There are some people who can’t get it done because they are pregnant or have serious health problems. It wasn’t the most comfortable feeling to get the injections, but it was so worth it.
