Would anyone know what type of saline they use for spider veins?

The solution is called "sclerosing solution" and the procedure is called "sclerotherapy".
For some, the procedure can be risky. Dermatologist Michael McCray, associate professor of clinical dermatology at the University of Southern California said "A person with hypertension, for instance, would be at risk, because the sclerosing solution contains a high degree of sodium, which raises blood pressure." Diabetics and those at risk for heart disease are not good candidates for sclerotherapy.
Years ago they used a chemical called, "Sodium Maruate (sp?)", but I don't know if they still do. It's supposed to be some form of "soap", even though it has a salt in it? I'm not a physician nor a chemist, but that's the name, perhaps spelled slightly differently? Good luck and God bless you. : )
I have been taking cinnamon 500mg capsules and I can tell a big difference in the spider veins! They have diminished at least 50% in the past couple months I have been taking the cinnamon!
Good luck~ I know they are aggravating
