Do you suffer from unsightly or unwanted blue or purple veins in your legs? Also known as spider or varicose veins, this painful condition may make your legs, ankles, and feet tender and swollen. This condition can even be disfiguring and can lead to complications such as blood clots, skin infections, or skin ulcers. Varicose veins typically come with aging, but also show up in overweight and pregnant people. Standing for long periods can also cause varicose veins. Even a previous leg injury can cause spider or varicose veins to develop. Fortunately, sclerotherapy benefits can alleviate all of these symptoms. Learn more about sclerotherapy below!
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that doctors use to treat spider veins, shallow varicose veins, and deep varicose veins. The treatment that doctors perform at Sacramento Surgical Arts involves the injection of a salt solution into the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and reduces its appearance on the surface. The treatment can involve multiple injections, depending on the severity of the condition. All of our surgeons at Sacramento Surgical Arts are board-certified and highly trained in the latest sclerotherapy techniques.
Doctors consider this treatment safe. In fact, it can be as effective as some surgical treatments, without the side effects of general surgery, such as lengthy hospital stays and post-operative complications.
The Sclerotherapy Benefits You Can Expect
The specialists at Sacramento Surgical Arts can perform sclerotherapy on an outpatient basis. We will discuss the benefits of sclerotherapy and risks of the procedure and if it is the right option for you. During your initial consultation, the specialists will help you determine how to get your desired results, whether it be multiple treatment sessions or incorporating other factors into your lifestyle. We will also instruct you on the appropriate steps to take before and after your procedure to ensure proper healing and an optimal outcome.
Because it is quick and doesn’t require anesthesia, the specialists can perform the procedure during your lunch hour. When you receive the series of injections, you can expect to see results between several days and several months, depending on the size of your veins. The discoloration will start to fade as the veins shrink.
