If you are dealing with varicose veins in Dearborn, MI, sclerotherapy may be the solution. It is a treatment that can remove completely the varicose vein so it will never return. It is a minimally-invasive treatment that has been used successfully for decades. The procedure involves a trained specialist injecting a special solution directly into the varicose vein or spider vein. The solution irritates the vein wall and coagulates the blood. The vein collapses and the blood flows through a healthy vein. Over the following weeks or months, the varicose vein is absorbed by the surrounding tissue and disappears.
Sclerotherapy is often considered the best treatment for small to medium varicose veins and spider veins. During a consultation with our specialist in Dearborn, MI, your veins will be examined to decide if you are a good candidate.
The entire procedure typically takes only minutes to complete. For larger veins, it may take more than one injection. The procedure will be performed in the comfort of our office in Dearborn, MI.
If sclerotherapy is right for your varicose veins, you will be asked to avoid certain medications before the procedure including prescription drugs, dietary supplements and herbal medications. After the procedure, you may be asked to wear compression stockings in order to put pressure on the treated vein to make sure it collapses. Walking will be encouraged and you can go back to work or other daily activities relatively quickly, if not immediately.
Sclerotherapy is 80 percent effective in eliminating varicose veins. Once the veins are gone, they will not return. However, new veins could become weak if the cause of your varicose veins is not removed. Exercise and weight loss can help prevent varicose veins. If you sit for hours at your job, you may need to walk around a bit every now and then to keep the blood circulating. If you stand for hours, you may need to sit with your feet elevated for several times throughout the day.
You no longer need to live with problematic varicose veins in your legs. Sclerotherapy is a proven treatment that may remove your varicose veins permanently.
