Treat Leg Veins With Sclerotherapy

The appearance of varicose veins on an individual’s legs can go unnoticed for some period of time. However, once the individual finally notices the veins, they can certainly be shocked by their appearance. Varicose veins give a stark, somewhat malignant impression despite them being relatively harmless. Thankfully, this minor condition can be effectively treated through sclerotherapy.

 

How Varicose Veins Occur

 

Varicose veins are essentially the result of faulty valves in an individual’s veins. As the blood pumps through the body and makes its way back up to the heart, it must pass through valves in the veins. These valves are meant to close in order to make sure that the blood continues to progress as it’s meant to. When an individual experiences varicose veins, it means that the valve does not close properly. The direct result of the fault valve’s performance is that blood accumulates in the vein and causes it to bulge. As time passes, the veins can give the impression of thick ropes that run underneath an individual’s skin. While some experience varicose veins as merely an aesthetic condition, others experience a great amount of pain that impairs their activity. What’s worse is that a lack of regular, healthy activity will likely cause the varicose veins to grow even more.

 

When All Else Has Failed

 

There are a myriad of non-invasive home remedies that individuals can attempt in order to reduce the visibility of their varicose veins. New walking or exercise regimens can help alleviate the issue somewhat, though in most cases it won’t be enough. The same can potentially apply to compression stocking, creams meant to treat varicose veins, massages to improve circulation, and healthy dietary changes. While all those methods are certainly healthy and are encouraged, it’s feasible for the varicose veins to remain visible despite an individual’s best efforts. The next logical step to take after all else fails is to engage in endovenous laser treatment or sclerotherapy in Aventura.

 

How Sclerotherapy Can Help Leg Veins

 

Sclerotherapy is among the most reliable treatment options for varicose veins. This is typically an outpatient procedure which is undertaken in the office of the medical professional. After the troublesome vein has been targeted, the medical professional will inject a special solution into it. The solution is meant to collapse the veins and seal it off. In effect, it will no longer be possible for the blood to pass through the varicose vein, and it will have to find its way through another course. During the weeks following the treatment, the patient’s body will slowly absorb the varicose vein tissue, and new, healthy tissue will take its place. Individuals who no longer want to deal with their varicose veins should speak to their local vein treatment specialist about sclerotherapy.
