Those that suffer from varicose and spider veins have a number of treatment options available to them. One of the treatments often used to deal with venous problems is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a common treatment performed at The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery in Orlando.
A Simple Solution for Varicose and Spider Veins
When you undergo sclerotherapy, you can benefit from a simple yet effective solution for the treatment of varicose and spider veins. The purpose of this treatment is to cause irritation to the blood vessel lining, which then results in the vessel collapsing. The blood clots and eventually the collapsed blood vessel is metabolized by the body.
The treatment itself is simple and quick. Once you have had the injection, the vein that has been treated may feel tight, but this is completely normal. It is the result of the contraction of the vein before it collapses. You may also experience some minor inflammation and tenderness in the treated areas, which is common and short-lived.
What About Recovery?
You can get back to your day-to-day routine shortly after having this treatment. However, bear in mind that there may be some minor tenderness, redness, and inflammation in the treated areas. But there are no major side effects to worry about with this treatment.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
While most patients hope to see the spider or varicose veins disappear shortly after the first treatment, you should bear in mind that sometimes results can take longer to show. In some cases, the same vein may need to be treated a number of times for the process to take effect. This is something that will be determined once you have had your first session.
