Are you suffering from varicose veins on your legs or other parts of your body? These annoying blood vessel problems are common among older people or those who are overweight. They can also occur in younger people or those with a normal weight. Whatever the case may be, if you have varicose veins, you have probably started seeking out treatment options for the condition. Fortunately, you have choices when it comes to varicose vein treatments at our vein clinic.
A Closer Look at Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are dysfunctional blood vessels that allow blood to pool in them, leading to their characteristic ropey and twisted appearance. Veins that are functioning properly have one-way valves that only permit blood to flow through them in one direction. Varicose veins have faulty valves that allow blood to flow back into them. Varicose veins are usually asymptomatic, but you may experience pain and discomfort from them at times.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a safe and proven treatment for varicose veins that has been around since the 1930s and is used to collapse the problem veins. We are happy to offer this popular procedure at our state-of-the-art vein clinic. During the treatment, we inject the problem vein with a special solution that causes its walls to collapse, destroying it. Your body will eventually absorb the destroyed vein and reroute the blood that once flowed through it.
What are the Other Options?
As previously mentioned, you have multiple options for treating your veins at our vein clinic. Other varicose vein treatment methods include ambulatory microphlebectomy, radiofrequency ablation, and Varithena®, just to name a few. All of these procedures are performed in the comfort of our office.
