Saline injections for spider veins? Need nurse opinion...

I've had this done at a doctors office before for about $150 plus. I've been ready up on it, and it seems to be just a highly salt consintrated solution. and is very overpriced for what you get. It's salt water in a needle. I was wondering if there are any nurses or people that work in a dermatologist's office ...i'm wondering could i get a needle and inject the saline solution myself? Is this crazy? If i miss, the solution wont kill me or anything...will it?
