What is Sclerotherapy Treatment?
If your condition isn’t too severe, sclerotherapy treatment may be suitable for you as it can effectively treat small to medium-sized varicose veins, completely eradicating them.
The treatment involves having sclerotherapy injections into your varicose veins that act to kill the venous wall – the body will absorb these veins harmlessly. Microsclerotherapy is used on smaller spider veins that appear on the surface of the skin.
Microfoam Sclerotherapy involves injecting a foam solution into the vein to damage the venous wall. It can be done quickly and without anaesthesia, allowing you to return to work after the treatment.
The treated varicose veins will eventually shrink away and gradually disappear as the body reabsorbs the damaged vein tissues.
Doctors often use ultrasound to guide sclerotherapy injections to deeper varicose veins.
If left untreated, varicose veins hidden below the skin surface and not visible to the eye can cause future problems.
To ensure the safe and accurate delivery of the injectable foam, ultrasound is used to guide the sclerotherapy injections to the correct location.
Furthermore, combining sclerotherapy with other treatments such as Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) can ensure the complete removal of all varicose veins, including smaller ones that could not be removed during the EVLA procedure.
How do sclerotherapy injections work?
Sclerotherapy injections work to cut off the feeder veins that supply smaller varicose veins and spider veins with blood. After being sealed off, these veins will gradually shrink and dissolve over time as they are reabsorbed by the body.
The Veins Doctor assesses your veins and determines the number of treatment sessions needed to remove your problem veins.
Foam sclerotherapy using ultrasound guidance involves injecting a foam of sclerosant liquid and gas.
Compression stockings, exercise, and the treatment can improve your legs’ appearance and prevent vein recurrence. Sclerotherapy is a simple outpatient treatment that doesn’t require hospitalization or anesthesia, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
A follow-up consultation is necessary to monitor your recovery and treatment effectiveness.
