Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for varicose and spider veins. During treatment a solution is injected directly into the affected vein, causing it to collapse, forcing the blood to reroute to healthier veins. This results in the improvement of the appearance of varicose and spider veins and relieves the patient of associated symptoms such as aching and swelling of the affected areas.
GET THE FACTS
Varicose and spider veins are caused by the dilation of blood vessels and the failure of valves in the venous system that cause small amounts of blood to pool in an area. Sclerotherapy is the injection of a solution into these effected areas to allow for redirection of pooled blood to healthier veins thus, improving circulation and relieving symptoms associated with varicose veins such as ache, swelling, and night cramps. Varicose veins are caused by a variety of factors including genetics, pregnancy, and hormonal changes.
