Over 40 million people suffer from a venous disease including spider veins. In most cases, spider veins will cause you to become concerned with the appearance of your legs especially during the summer months. However, spider veins can also cause itching, swelling and aching in the legs. While spider veins are treated as a cosmetic issue, healing the venous disease will provide you with legs that not only look better but feel better too. With that being said, you might be wondering what treatment is available for this unattractive disease.
Sclerotherapy is the most common spider vein treatment method and one that Premier Vein Specialists is able to accommodate. During this simple outpatient procedure, a chemical solution is injected into the small web-like veins. Since you can easily see these small purple or blue vessels which are close to the surface of the skin, the procedure is simple allowing you to walk-in and walk-out in about an hour. There is no need for time off or rest after the procedure. Walking as much as possible is highly recommended. It helps get the blood flowing and aids your body in the healing process. Wearing compression stockings after the procedure is recommended and helps your body absorb the veins we just treated. Although the incredible results of Sclerotherapy may take weeks or months to appear, your legs should feel better almost immediately.
Is Sclerotherapy right for you? Dr. Mathai and the team at Premier Vein Specialists want to identify your needs and help you improve your health and confidence.
