You’ve had enough of your varicose veins. You can’t stand to look at those bulging, blue lines running along your legs. You’ve tried everything that your doctor told you to do. You limited the amount of salt that you eat to improve your circulation. You walk every day to try and strengthen the veins in your legs. You wear compression stockings. Nothing helps. They’re just getting worse.
It’s at the point that your varicose veins hurt all of the time. Your legs feel so heavy and ache. You can’t exercise like you should because you need to put your feet up. You can’t wear anything that reveals your legs because your varicose veins are an eyesore. Sclerotherapy can help you to get rid of your problem veins once and for all.
What’s Going on Inside Your Body?
Varicose veins are caused by faulty valves in your affected veins. As the blood passes through the veins to make its way upwards to your heart, the valves in your veins should close. This ensures that your blood does not flow backwards.
In a varicose vein, the valve doesn’t shut. Your blood trickles back and pools in your vein. Gradually, the vein starts to swell and become noticeable. Over time, the condition will only worsen. You can try lifestyle changes and compression stockings to keep the problem from getting worse. These remedies might help you to keep more varicose veins from developing. However, you can’t make varicose veins go away on your own. You’re going to need intervention. Sclerotherapy is one of the most common and effective alternatives to address varicose veins.
What Happens During a Sclerotherapy Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive approach to treat varicose veins. You’ll come into our office for this brief outpatient procedure. A special solution will be injected into your problem veins. This solution is designed to cause the vein to collapse and clot. Your body will naturally redirect the blood to a healthy vein while your problem vein shuts down. Over a period of months, the varicose vein will fade from sight as healthy tissue replaces it.
Sclerotherapy doesn’t work in a day, but it will eventually give you the results that you want to see. Continue to eat the right kind of diet, stay away from smoking and stay active in order to keep your legs strong. When you team up with our doctor to take care of your veins, you will have the best outcome.
