If you suffer from varicose or spider veins, there are a few treatment options available that can reduce their appearance. Sclerotherapy is one treatment, which is non-invasive, highly effective, and has minimal complications. It is an outpatient procedure, and can be preformed in a doctor's office by a vascular specialist.
Sclerotherapy works by injecting a chemical into a problem vein, which damages the vein's interior wall, and causes the vein to collapse. When blood vessels collapse, they are absorbed into the body, and their appearance under the skin diminishes, and blood flow is re-directed to healthy veins.
The sclerotherapy procedure is preformed by a vascular specialist in their office. The skin around the varicose veins is cleansed, and a local anesthetic is applied. Then the chemical agent is injected into the vein. The chemical reacts quickly with the vessel wall, and results are visible almost immediately.
Results from Sclerotherapy are typically dramatic, with the appearance of varicose veins greatly reduced. Side effects are usually mild, and recovery time very short. Normal activities can be resumed the same day as the procedure.
The cost of sclerotherapy is determined by the size of the veins that need to be treated, how extensive they are, and if treatment is necessary on both legs. Visit a vascular specialist to find out if sclerotherapy is the right treatment option for you varicose veins.
