Standing, pregnancy and injuries can contribute to the development of Varicose veins
The exact cause of Varicose veins is not known, however, a number of factors are thought to play a part in their development. These include genetics, gender, pregnancy, obesity, standing for long periods and leg injuries.
Varicose Veins can be treated. A procedure known as Sclerotherapy can make varicose veins gradually disappear. This is the main treatment for varicose and spider veins.
The Treatment called Sclerotherapy injects a solution into the veins.
This procedure uses a very tiny needle to inject a special solution into the varicose veins.This solution causes irritation in the wall of the vein when eventually causes it to collapse and be absorbed by the body. A new more healthy vein eventually takes over this diseased veins function
With very tiny vein we can sometimes use a laser to cause the same effect as the sclerotherapy.
The number of sclerotherapy sessions a patient requires depends on the extent of her varicose veins.Each session usually lasts 20 minutes and allows the Doctor to inject 30-40 times on various veins. The same vein maybe treated on several sucessive visits until it clears.
