Sclerotherapy is one of the most common treatments that is used for spider veins and varicose veins in the Rio Grande Valley and elsewhere. These types of veins can be extremely bothersome because of the way they change your appearance and cause you to suffer uncomfortable symptoms. We invite you to learn more about how sclerotherapy works and how it can benefit you.
How Sclerotherapy is Performed
The basic treatment involves injecting a special solution into the offending veins. The medication’s purpose is to close the veins. When the veins are closed, the blood will run through other veins that are healthy. The lining of the treated veins is going to become irritated because of the medication and will collapse.
In the weeks after the treatment is performed, the vein will disappear. It is going to be absorbed by the body. So those bulging or dark-colored veins that used to bother you and cause uncomfortable symptoms will no longer be there. The blood will be flowing through healthy veins that are not visible.
Sclerotherapy is a treatment that is performed right here in our office. You do not have to worry about the use of anesthesia. There are some common side effects that you may experience, but these things are likely to go away on their own not long after the treatment.
Preparing for your treatment is simple. It is important to avoid exposure to the sun for a set amount of time before the treatment. This is also something that you will have to do after the treatment.
