If you are the victim of varicose veins or spider veins, you know how bothersome they can be. When you have twisted, dark veins that look like ropes rising up on your legs, the only thing you want to do is hide this condition. While the appearance of veins is bad enough, they can be painful as well. Your legs ache all of the time and feel heavy.
Sometimes they throb and make your legs start to cramp. Your legs tend to swell as well. Fortunately, there is something you can do about your veins, whether they are painful or you simply do not like their appearance. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy can help you.
How Can Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy Benefit You?
Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a special solution into your affected veins to make the vein collapse. Your body will adapt, finding another pathway for the blood that is circulating through your system, and the collapsed vein will eventually disappear. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is more precise, helping you to have better results.
How Does Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy Work?
When you choose to have ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, ultrasound technology is used to pinpoint the exact location of your problematic veins in order to inject the solution in the best spot. This is especially helpful for veins that may not be as pronounced, ensuring that you will get to the root of the problem and rid yourself of those pesky veins once and for all.
The procedure is brief and takes place at our doctor’s office. After your procedure is over, you can expect to wear compression stockings to improve your circulation. It will take some time for your veins to fade away, but it will be well worth the wait in the end.
Is Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy the Right Choice for You?
It’s time to stop letting those varicose veins or spider veins get the best of you. You don’t have to hide your legs anymore or put up with the pain that has been your companion since you began to suffer from the veins. Only a medical professional can determine if ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is the best alternative for you.
