The presence of varicose veins can leave you feeling bad about yourself due to the impact they can have on the appearance. In addition, they frequently produce symptoms that can cause physical discomforts. If you are caught up in a situation like this, there is good news in that treatment methods are available that do not require extensive downtime for recovery. Before you undergo something invasive like vein stripping surgery, you might want to have a discussion with our specialist about sclerotherapy. It may be just what you need to get rid of those unwanted veins in a way that lets you continue your normal activities quickly.
Sclerotherapy is done when a solution is injected into the problem veins. The solution will irritate the walls of the vessels and thicken the blood inside. The veins that are treated will then close off and turn into a type of scar tissue that the body will begin to absorb. Over the following weeks, the veins will be gone. You can then begin to enjoy a normal appearance and be free from the uncomfortable symptoms the condition may have caused.
Sclerotherapy has been used successfully for the treatment of varicose and spider veins for many years. It remains popular because of its effectiveness and ease of administration. Risks of complications are minimal as well. The treatment is done in the comfort of our office, and you can return to your normal daily routine immediately. Activity is actually encouraged for optimal results.
Not every person with varicose veins will experience symptoms. Those that do, however, often feel sensations like numbness and tingling. The condition can cause aching and swelling, especially later in the day when the person has spent most of the day on his or her feet. People with varicose veins can be at a higher risk for blood clots as well. This can lead to even worse conditions.
If you have varicose veins, you should ask our expert at MacMed Spa for more details about sclerotherapy. It may be just what you need to get rid of them in a way that does not result in a bunch of time away from your normal activities.
