What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a medical technique used to completely eliminate the appearance of varicose and spider veins. The presence of varicose and spider veins is usually caused by damage to the blood vessel, which causes the blood to pool or flow backward. This creates the unsightly blue coloring or raised appearance of the vein. Sclerotherapy uses an injection of a unique solution, usually containing salt, to eliminate varicose veins. The solution is injected directly into the affected vein and irritates the blood vessel, causing it to collapse, which blocks blood flow through the vein. The blood that would have normally passed through this vessel must now find an alternate route. This process effectively treats the appearance of varicose and spider veins as blood can no longer pool in the vessel that was causing the problem.
Choose Laser Vein Removal as an Alternative
As an alternative to sclerotherapy, a laser procedure can also be used to treat varicose and spider veins. Utilizing the advanced technology of lasers, this procedure uses the light from a laser to heat the affected veins. This process effectively closes and shrinks the blood vessel, causing scar tissue to form within the vein and preventing the flow of blood through it. The blood is then forced to through other nearby veins instead. After the vessel is closed using laser therapy, the appearance of the varicose or spider vein will eventually disappear as the pooled blood disperses to other areas of the body.
