Sclerotherapy: A Solution for Varicose and Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy: A Solution for Varicose and Spider Veins

If you suffer from spider veins or varicose veins, you’re undoubtedly unhappy with their appearance and looking for an effective solution. Both spider veins and varicose veins can keep you from wearing shorts and swimsuits – and even from enjoying many activities you’d normally love to do. Fortunately, both spider veins and varicose veins can be treated today. Although spider veins and varicose veins are quite different, one of the primary vein treatments may be the same. Read on to find out everything you need to know about sclerotherapy!

Sclerotherapy: What Is It?

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a special solution directly into the veins. This solution causes the veins to vanish gradually, leaving smooth legs behind. One of the most common sclerosing solution is Sodium tetradecyl sulfate, which is used to seal the vein. A sclerotherapy appointment is usually 30 minutes or less in length. The number of sessions required typically varies from two to five. After all sessions are completed, the spider or varicose veins are usually significantly reduced if not eliminated.

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy works by irritating the blood vessels within the veins. In response to this irritation, the vein will close off. Soon, the vein will collapse because it is no longer over-filled with blood. Eventually, the collapsed vein will be absorbed harmlessly by the body. The sclerotherapy process affects the visible veins that the sclerosing solution was injected into.
