We have all of the information you need so you can make the best decision about what treatment will get you the results you want. Among the many cosmetic treatments, our expert’s offer is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a treatment used to get rid of varicose veins, otherwise known as spider veins, on the legs, face, and hands. These kinds of veins form when blood pulls in the area because of weak vein walls weakening the vein valves. When the blood pulls up in these areas the veins get inflamed and begin to be much more noticeable on the skin. The more the veins are noticeable on the skin the more that the spider vein look comes about, at this point, many people seek treatment options such as sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of the veins. This form of treatment has been effective for many who have received it, with many patients seeing a dramatic decrease in vein size in as little as a week or two after their appointment. Looks aside many people continue with this procedure as a way of reducing the pain they feel from this vein inflammation. Varicose veins can cause many skin issues such as rashes which are painful and can be cosmetically annoying.
What to Expect at Your Consultation and Appointment?
Before the treatment occurs, the patient will usually consult with their Beaute Therapies specialist. At this consultation you can expect to discuss the procedure and whether or not it’s right for you. At this point, the doctor will also analyze the area with the veins to see what they are dealing with. If everything goes smoothly with the consultation you can expect going into treatment soon. At the treatment session, you will be instructed to lay down while the doctor inserts the needle into your veins. The solution in the needle is an irritant so it is completely normal to feel a tingling, pinching, and burning sensation. After the injection process, your doctor will massage the area to ensure that blood does not puddle up in the vein. Once this is done you can go on with your day as normal and enjoy your results. One thing to keep in mind is that this treatment is not always a one-time treatment, many people need more sessions to reduce the size of the vein for the long term.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy works to decrease the size of veins by being injected into the vein in question to reduce the amount of inflammation and blood pooled. Once the solution is injected into the vein the solutions will result in the vein scarring, which will then release some of the blood that was collecting in the area. Once the blood is released it will then move to other healthier veins in the body. The vein that was injected will then fade as there is less blood being pooled which means less inflammation. Some of the results will come after the injection; however, sometimes the vein will fade more and more, over a few weeks rather than immediately. Typically, veins that responded to the solution will not return after going through a few treatment sessions; however, this does not prevent new veins from appearing on other areas of the body.
