You’re not sure when it started, but you have varicose veins in your legs. No matter what you do, they will not go away. You tried a walking regimen. You picked up some compression stockings. You applied creams to your legs and tried massage to increase your circulation. You cut back on your salt intake. All of those habits are healthy, but they won’t eliminate varicose veins that have already set in. These leg veins will only get worse over time. If you want to spare yourself the trouble and be able to wear things that show off your legs, consider sclerotherapy.
How Can Sclerotherapy Help You with Your Leg Veins?
Varicose veins are a common problem. They are the result of faulty valves in your veins. As your blood pumps through your body and heads back up to your heart, it passes through valves in your veins. These valves are supposed to close to ensure that your blood keeps on moving in the proper direction. When you have a varicose vein, the valve doesn’t close properly. The end result is blood that pools in the vein and makes it start to bulge. As time goes by, your varicose veins can look like huge ropes running beneath your skin. Varicose veins are more than a pesky problem. They can become so painful that they keep you from being active. When you aren’t active, your varicose veins will get worse. You can stop it with sclerotherapy.
What Happens When You Choose Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is one of the most common forms of treatment for varicose veins. This is an outpatient procedure that is performed in the comfort of our office. Once your varicose vein has been targeted, a special solution will be injected into it. The solution will cause the vein to collapse and seal off. Blood will no longer be able to pass through your varicose vein and will find another course to take. Eventually, your varicose vein will be absorbed by the body and healthy tissue will take over.
