Sclerotherapy For Leg Veins
Spider veins most commonly appear on the legs.As we age, our existing veins can become much more noticeable as a result of standing for prolonged periods of time, sitting with crossed legs, problems with the valves in deeper veins, and most commonly – genetics.There is a simple treatment for this problem.Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes a sclerosing solution that when injected into a vein causes it to become inflamed, shrink down, and eventually disappear as a result of the body’s immune response.
Sclerotherapy was developed over 75 years ago and is currently one of the most popular treatments for spider veins, telangiectatic and reticular veins.Depending upon the types of veins treated, a combination of different treatment modalities may be suggested. Several treatments may be required to achieve optimum results. In some cases as few as 1-2 treatments will suffice.
