Sclerotherapy is a treatment for varicose veins and spider veins that involves injecting them with a chemical solution. The solution causes the affected blood vessels to shrink and collapse, blocking their ability to return to the surface again. Sclerotherapy is also known as micro injections or collagen injections. It has been used for years as an effective treatment for varicose and spider veins, but it wasn’t always so user-friendly. With its recent advances in technology, sclerotherapy has become safer, easier to administer, and more effective than it was in the past. This article covers everything you need to know about sclerotherapy—including what it is, what kinds of conditions it treats best, how much it costs, where you can get it done, how much pain you can expect post-procedure (and how much pain you can expect if you don’t get treated), whether or not there are side effects associated with sclerotherapy, whether or not there are risks involved with getting your varicose veins treated this way—and so much more!
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a medical treatment that uses a special solution to shrink and close off veins that are causing you pain or discomfort. The solution is injected into the veins using a very fine needle, usually with the help of a local anaesthetic. When the solution is injected into the veins, it causes the veins to shrink and eventually close off completely. The veins can no longer be seen and no longer cause you any pain. Sclerotherapy is useful for treating spider veins and varicose veins. Varicose veins are twisted and swollen veins in your legs that can cause pain, itching, and discomfort. They are often found in the calves and thighs. Spider veins are smaller and less painful than varicose veins. They are often found on the face, arms, and legs
How does sclerotherapy work?
Sclerotherapy works by injecting a chemical solution into the walls of the veins. The solution travels through the walls of the veins, helping those veins to constrict and eventually collapse, which prevents the blood from flowing back into them. In the case of varicose veins, the solution travels through the walls of the veins and forms a clot. The clot shuts off the vein, preventing blood from flowing through it again. However, the veins are a little different depending on where they are in your body. The veins in your lower extremities (i.e. your calves and your thighs) are different from the veins on your face or your arms. For example, veins in your lower extremities are larger and have a larger diameter than veins in your face. This is why the solution used in the legs will cause the veins in the legs to close off completely, but the solution used in the face will only cause the veins to shrink down to a size that isn’t noticeable.
Is sclerotherapy effective for treating varicose and spider veins?
The long and the short of it is that yes, sclerotherapy is very effective for treating varicose and spider veins. The results of sclerotherapy tend to last between 6 and 12 months, and follow-up treatments are sometimes necessary to ensure that the veins remain closed and continue to stay away from the surface of the skin.
As you’ve read above, sclerotherapy is a very effective treatment for varicose and spider veins. It’s also very convenient: It’s an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require you to take any time off from work or school. It doesn’t come with any serious side effects. And you can usually get it done with minimal to no down-time at all. If you’re currently suffering from symptoms of varicose veins, spider veins, or other types of leg veins, you should absolutely talk to your doctor about getting treated with sclerotherapy. It’s an extremely effective and relatively low-risk treatment that can help you get your legs back!
