Varicose veins are twisted, swollen blood vessels that are visible just under the surface of the skin. They are normally found in the legs, but can also occur in other parts of the body. Your healthy veins have one-way valves to prevent backflow of blood into them. Instead, they keep blood flowing back to your heart. These valves can become damaged and allow blood to pool into your veins. This leads to the veins swelling, which will develop into varicose veins. If you are suffering from this condition, you have probably begun searching for different methods of varicose veins removal.
Varicose Veins Symptoms
Varicose veins do not always cause symptoms, particularly when they are the smaller cousins of varicose veins, or spider veins. Some symptoms and signs of varicose veins include:
- Large, twisted veins visible just under the skin’s surface
- Swelling in your ankles and feet
- Achy, painful legs
- Cramping or throbbing in your legs
- Legs that itch, particularly on the lower legs and ankles
- Discolored skin around the varicose vein
Sclerotherapy Varicose Veins Removal
Sclerotherapy is a proven type of treatment in which we inject medicine into the dysfunctional vein that causes it to shrink. The procedure only requires an injection and is non-surgical. It is also used for the treatment of blood and lymph vessel disorders that cause dysfunctional blood vessels. Sclerotherapy involves the use of an irritating solution that we inject right into the problem vein. The sclerosing solution will irritate the varicose vein, causing it to swell up. This will restrict the flow of blood inside the vessel, causing it to shrink.
During your procedure, we will clean the area of treatment and then inject the sclerosing solution into the vein. After the injection, we will massage the treatment area so blood does not reenter the treated vein. You may need to wear compression stockings or a pad on the treatment area.
