Sclerotherapy is a popular procedure that is used to address issues with spider veins and varicose veins. It involves injecting a special solution into a problem vein in order to cause the vein to collapse. As it collapsed, it becomes sealed. Blood can no longer pass through the vein and will find another pathway. Over time, the treated vein will be absorbed and bothersome veins will no longer be visible. The procedure does not work immediately, but it will eventually resolve the problems that are brought on by unwanted veins.
Varicose veins are a common problem that often becomes for prevalent with aging. They are due to faulty valves in the affected veins. The valves are supposed to close once the blood passes through the vein as it continues on its path to the heart. When you have a varicose vein, the valve doesn’t shut. Blood can flow in the wrong direction and create a pool that will eventually bulge. The end result is a vein that looks like a blue rope running beneath the surface of your skin. Spider veins, another common vein complaint, are in smaller vessels.
While there are various ways to treat varicose veins and spider veins, sclerotherapy is one of the least invasive approaches. It is simple, and the procedure can be performed in the comfort of our office. If you don’t treat your veins, they will only become worse. Problematic veins will not go away on their own. They will continue to swell to the point that they are a true eyesore. Worse yet, they can make your legs ache and feel heavy all of the time. Ignore your veins and you could find yourself giving up the things you love to do because your legs are causing you too much discomfort.
Sclerotherapy allows you to tackle your unwanted veins so that you can see what your legs should look like once again. After your successful treatment, you can make lifestyle changes that will help you to avoid more veins in the future. This will help to make sure that your sclerotherapy treatment pays off.
