Summer is just around the corner… you know what that means right? Beach, bikinis, and short shorts! Do you feel ready to be in your short shorts, or is there something holding you back? Varicose veins are not only unsightly but also dangerous. If you are avoiding showing bare skin because of varicose veins or spider veins, we may have just the treatment for you! If the unsightly appearance of veins does not entice you to undergo treatment, it’s probably time you learned more about them and the dangers associated.
Ultrasound Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins
You might have heard of our ultrasound sclerotherapy treatment option for varicose and spider veins. So how does it work? Our ultrasound guided sclerotherapy treatment is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment that is used for varicose veins, spider veins, and thread veins. The treatment involves an injection of sterile sclerosing solution into the veins, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear. During the shrinking process the vein walls are washed away, which is why the walls stick together and dramatically reduce the appearance of the veins. This does not reduce blood flow to the legs as the body is able to source blood through other healthier veins. You can rest assured knowing that our highly trained staff use ultrasound technology ensuring better chances of accuracy and success.
Deep Vein Thrombosis Risks
For people suffering from varicose veins, it is not just a cosmetic issue but also a health risk. Have you heard of deep vein thrombosis? Deep vein thrombosis is a case of a blood clot being found in a vein deeply beneath the skin’s surface. It is commonly found in the legs; however it can also occur in other parts of the body. A blood clot in a deep vein can be highly dangerous due to the possibility of it breaking off, travelling to an artery in the body and causing blockages. The possibility of these situations should be taken seriously as consequences can be fatal. Spider veins don’t pose a risk as such, but patients usually value their treatment equally for the reason that they think they will feel more confident post-procedure.
Does it really work?
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is one of the most effective treatments we offer. Each sclerotherapy session typically results in elimination of 50 to 80 percent of the injected veins. Most people only need one sclerotherapy session to achieve the results they are after; where others may need an additional treatment at a later date.
