Veins serve a vital purpose. They are key in transmitting blood and other vital fluids through our bodies. All of us know that we have veins and are happy when they’re working properly. Our veins become problematic, though, when we can start to see them through our skin. Varicose veins can also lead to serious health issues and unpleasant symptoms. This is why we invite you to say goodbye to your leg veins with sclerotherapy at our office.
Varicose veins can happen in anyone, but they are more common in women. The chance of a woman having varicose veins or spider veins is greater if their sisters, their grandmothers, and their mother also battled with the same issue.
For many women and some men, varicose veins start in their thirties. It looks like a tiny blue branch or lines that are going the length of their legs. Varicose veins are not always painful and they don’t always cause discomfort, but they always affect appearance. Sclerotherapy is an excellent treatment for individuals who want to do something about their problematic leg veins.
Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure where we inject a solution into the vein that is causing problems. The result is that the vein dies and dries up. The vein that is being targeted eventually collapses. Over time, your body sees the collapsed vein as debris and begins to absorb it. Over the course of the following weeks, the vein completely disappears.
There is some post-treatment care when it comes to treating leg veins with sclerotherapy. For example, you will likely need to wear compression socks for a set amount of time. The results that most people see after sclerotherapy are amazing. The veins that are bothering them disappear, and any discomfort that they were experiencing from their leg veins goes away.
As with any procedure, getting treatment for your leg veins is going to begin with a consultation with our expert at Lasting Skin Solutions in Fitchburg. During that initial consultation, we are going to confirm that your varicose veins are not causing you any underlying health issues and that they are not the result of an underlying health issue. From there, we can see if sclerotherapy can work for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for vein treatment!
