Vein Treatment: Sclerotherapy
For years, healthcare providers have advised patients that varicose veins and spider veins are purely a cosmetic issue, that they don’t cause symptoms and should be ignored. Now, advancements in the understanding of vein disorders and their treatment has spawned the new medical specialty, Phlebology, the study of vein disorders. Much of the recent knowledge of vein disorders hasn’t reached the majority of health providers. This may leave the patient with inaccurate or inadequate information. Phlebologists are vein treatment doctors who are uniquely qualified to help in the understanding of the significance of venous disease and how it can be treated.
We feel it is important for our patients to understand the cause of varicose and spider veins, what symptoms are associated with them and what vein treatments can be done to alleviate symptoms and to improve the health of veins in the legs.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy uses injections from a very fine, thin needle to treat spider veins and varicose veins in the legs. A sterile sclerosing solution is injected directly into the spider or varicose veins. This solution causes the vein to scar, which forces blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into the local tissue and eventually fades. This treatment also alleviates the symptoms of varicose veins (aching, burning sensations, swelling and cramping).
