While varicose and spider veins usually don’t cause pain, they’re unsightly. They might cause you to feel self-conscious in shorts or any other articles of clothing that expose your legs. You can feel better about the appearance of your legs though by undergoing sclerotherapy from Entre Nous Aesthetics, serving Menlo Park, Atherton, Palo Alto, and the surrounding area.
We use sclerotherapy to treat both varicose and spider veins. During the treatment, our practitioner injects a special solution into the vein. This formula causes scarring in the vein. Since the vessel isn’t functional anymore, the blood is redirected through other, healthier veins in your legs. Eventually, your body will reabsorb the old vein, so it’ll disappear completely. Once the vein disappears, you no longer must suffer from its unwanted appearance or any symptoms from it like pain and leg cramping.
What You Can Expect During Sclerotherapy
Most of the time, sclerotherapy takesless than 30 minutes per treatment. You may need to return to have additional injections to close the vein fully. Once we see you for your follow-up appointment, we can determine if further treatment is necessary.
After the procedure, our practitioner wraps the area with bandages, so blood doesn’t return to the veins. You might also need to wear compression stockings for a few weeks after your procedure.
Benefits of Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is highly effective at ridding you of the embarrassment – and possibly pain – of spider and varicose veins. Varicose veins may cause health issues if left untreated, such as a blood clot forming within the vein and traveling to your lungs. Therefore, by seeking out a treatment like sclerotherapy, you may be preventing a serious complication in the future.
Sclerotherapy is nonsurgical, which is ideal if you don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure and contend with the recovery and potential complications of it. Generally, sclerotherapy takes less time to recover. Additionally, patients tend to feel less discomfort from this procedure than surgery.
Possible Risks of Sclerotherapy
Most people have a positive experience after sclerotherapy. Site reactions are the most common complaint among patients. Some possible site reactions include bruising, redness, skin sores, skin discoloration, and tiny red blood vessels. Generally, these side effects subside within a few days to weeks in a majority of cases.
You might have inflammation, but our practitioner will educate you on ways to minimize it at home. Sometimes, a blood clot forms in the treated vein, but it’s possible for a medical professional to drain the blood clot before it turns into anything serious. Although it’s uncommon, an allergic reaction to the solution is possible.
