WEST PALM BEACH, FL, July 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Varicose veins are veins located near the surface of the skin that appear enlarged, bulging, twisted and blue-colored. Varicose veins are most commonly found in the legs and ankles, especially in older, sedentary and overweight females, and are caused by weakened or damage valves in the veins. While many cases of varicose veins are not associated with any symptoms other than cosmetic issues, some may cause pain, burning, aching, swelling and itching around the affected area. In more severe cases, inflammation, dermatitis and even open sores may ensue without vein treatment.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy, which has been around since the early 20th Century, is the most common spider vein treatment used today. During sclerotherapy, a sclerosing solution is injected into the varicose vein or spider vein, which causes the vein to first swell and then stick together and shrink, thereby stopping the blood flow. Within a few weeks, the vein will have faded from view completely.
Benefits of Sclerotherapy
In addition to providing effective symptom reduction, sclerotherapy is associated with a number of benefits. It is a minimally invasive and relatively fast procedure, generally taking only about 15 to 30 minutes, and during the procedure, there is minimal discomfort. The recovery is fast, and you can usually resume your daily life activities immediately after the procedure. Most importantly, sclerotherapy treatment is highly safe and rarely associated with any side effects.
"The fact that sclerotherapy has been around for almost a century tells you just how effective and safe this treatment method really is," tells Dr. Steven Tidwell, MD. "If you are suffering from unappealing or painful veins, sclerotherapy treatment can help. Make an appointment with one of our vein care specialists today to discuss whether sclerotherapy is right for you."
