Are you dealing with unwanted veins that commonly cause frustration because of the way they affect your appearance? For many people, they can hurt their self-esteem. And for those with varicose veins, they can experience symptoms that lead to physical discomforts.
The most likely places for varicose veins to form are the legs. They are the result of blood pooling inside the veins. The pooling creates extra pressure against the walls of the vessels. As a result, they get larger and become varicose.
Varicose veins impact the appearance when they become visible through the skin. Most of the time they appear to be blue. They often cause the skin to bulge. The appearance alone is sufficient reason to seek treatment, but they can also cause aching, swelling, burning and itching. These symptoms tend to get worse as the day wears on, and can become worse if the veins go untreated.
Spider veins frequently develop on the face as well as the legs. Only on rare occasions do they cause symptoms. Though their impact is mostly cosmetic in nature, spider veins can directly affect a person’s self-esteem and consequently their day-to-day life.
If you have varicose or spider veins and want a true method for getting rid of them, you should ask our medical team at South Texas Vein Institute about sclerotherapy. The treatment has been in use for many years with great success. The treatment is given by injecting a special solution into the veins that are to be removed. This causes them to safely collapse and disappear over time. Within approximately a few months, they will no longer be very visible.
Sclerotherapy is a popular method for treating spider and varicose veins because it is safe and poses little risk for complications. When the sclerotherapy procedure is over, you can return to your normal routine immediately. The procedure requires no downtime and can be done in the comfort of our office in Edinburg.
The best way to determine if sclerotherapy is your best option is to schedule an appointment with our medical team. After an examination and a review of your medical history, a decision can be made regarding how to best move forward with a treatment plan.
