You can’t stand the sight of your legs. They are marred by blue, bulging, snake-like veins that are wriggling across the surface. You never thought you would have problematic veins, but here they are. They ache and make your legs feel heavy. Worst of all, they look terrible. You’ve tried creams, walking and compression stockings. They aren’t going anywhere. Sclerotherapy is a treatment that can really boost your confidence as you deal with the discomfort and embarrassment of unwanted veins.
The Ins and Outs of Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is one of the most common forms of treatment that is advised to treat problematic veins. It involves having an injection of an irritant into the affected vein. The irritant causes the vein walls to collapse, effectively sealing off that vein so that blood can no longer travel through it and collect in it. It won’t happen overnight, but the blood will find a new path to travel and your veins will eventually be replaced by healthy tissue. Sclerotherapy is non-surgical and will spare you more complex alternatives that require invasive means.
Why Have a Sclerotherapy Treatment?
When you have problematic veins, you have faulty valves in the affected veins. The valves are supposed to close after your blood passes through the vein as it travels to your heart. In your case, the valve does not close. This allows blood to flow back in the wrong direction, where it collects in your vein. This causes a pool of blood to form. The blood continues to accumulate until your vein begins to bulge. If you do not treat your vein, it will only get worse. You will notice that the vein is bulging more and more. It isn’t going to go away without some form of treatment. Sclerotherapy is usually the easiest way to treat these types of veins. By making healthy choices following treatment, you may be able to avoid future issues with your veins.
