When unsightly veins pop up on your legs, it is more than a nuisance. While these veins may make you want to cover up your legs, the bigger problem is the discomfort. Problematic veins can make your legs ache all of the time, making them feel heavy. You can really feel like you are starting to drag. When your legs are throbbing or burning, it’s hard to be active and you have to put your legs up just to find some relief. You’re supposed to walk to ease your pain and promote better circulation in your legs, but they bother you too much. Sclerotherapy can help you to remove those leg veins and feel your best.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy is a common, minimally-invasive procedure that can eliminate your leg veins. Our medical professional will identify the veins that have been causing problems for you. At that point, a special solution will be injected into your problematic vein. The solution will eventually cause the vein to clot. Your circulatory system will adapt, sending your blood to other veins. In time, your problematic vein will fade away.
What Can You Do to Make Sclerotherapy as Effective as Possible?
Unsightly veins are the result of veins that have become weak. The valves in your affected veins aren’t working properly. They don’t shut, causing the blood to pool in your vein. Eventually, it starts to bulge or twist. In order to prevent these veins and make your sclerotherapy treatment as effective as possible, you can walk every day. Being in shape and maintaining a healthy weight can take the strain off of your legs. You can also wear compression stockings to encourage a healthy flow of blood through your veins. Strong, healthy legs are more likely to be free of problematic veins.
Is Sclerotherapy Right for You?
If you want to eliminate your leg veins without surgery, sclerotherapy may be able to provide you with an effective alternative without the need for surgery. Your treatment could be as short as 15 minutes. Expect to be done in less than an hour. As soon as your treatment is over, you’ll be provided with compression stockings. You will also be advised to walk. This will get your blood moving in the right direction the way that it should.
