Reduce Your Varicose Veins With Sclerotherapy

Vericose Veins Do you have painful varicose veins? Do they make walking and standing unbearable? Well, we have good news for you: you can get rid of varicose veins with sclerotherapy. Doctors have relied on sclerotherapy to reduce the size and appearance of varicose veins for more than 90 years. If it wasn’t a surgery that worked, it wouldn’t have stood the test of time. Now, let’s discuss what varicose veins are and how sclerotherapy affects them.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are a sign of an issue with your vascular and lymphatic systems. You will develop varicose veins when the blood pressure inside your veins increases to such an extent as to make your veins visible. Varicose veins have a pronounced appearance due to being swollen in nature. Although anyone is susceptible to developing varicose veins, certain factors can make you more prone to developing varicose veins than other people. Factors that make you a candidate for developing varicose veins include but are not limited to:

  • Age
  • Weight
  • Sex (female)
  • Pregnancy
  • Excessive sitting or standing (e.g., working retail)
  • Family history

How Does Sclerotherapy Reduce the Appearance of My Varicose Veins?

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that targets your varicose veins. A doctor will inject a chemical solution into the site of your veins using a tiny needle. This solution will prevent blood from steadily flowing to your swollen veins. Your varicose veins will die from the lack of blood supply. After a few days or weeks, your varicose veins will minimize in size and appearance due to the swollen veins dying off.

Does Sclerotherapy Hurt?

The doctor will use a tiny needle during the injection. Sclerotherapy is only mildly painful due to the small needle and minimal invasive. Also, the doctor can use local anesthesia, numbing your pain sensors, if needed.
