If you have developed varicose veins on your legs, you are very much aware of the impact they can have on your self-confidence as you begin to wonder what other people think when they see them. These problematic veins can also cause physical discomforts like aching, pain and discomfort. For these and other reasons, many people with varicose veins look for treatments that can remove them. One of the best treatments out there is sclerotherapy.
Varicose veins are known for their rope-like look and physical discomforts. They develop when the blood pools in the veins and does not flow correctly. When this happens, more pressure is placed against the vessel walls, causing them to become bigger. They are usually visible through the skin, and they form bulges along the skin.
If you are struggling with the idea of whether or not to seek treatment for your varicose veins, you should look into sclerotherapy at our office. It is a highly successful method for getting rid of them in a way that does not necessitate a long recovery period. In fact, after sclerotherapy, you can return to normal life.
Sclerotherapy works when a solution is injected into the veins that need to be removed. This solution irritates the insides of the walls of the veins. This causes them to stick together and safely collapse. The veins will then close off and turn into scar tissue. Over the following months, this tissue will disappear as the body absorbs it.
During treatment, we use a specialized device called Transivein. This is a light device which will be placed on your skin so that we can see your veins and accurately treat them without having a hard time locating your veins. After treatment, we also will use compression to help aid the healing process.
If you have varicose veins that you would like to eliminate and you want a method that causes no downtime and minimal discomfort, you should ask our medical team at South Texas Vein Institute if you are a good candidate for sclerotherapy.
