With recent advances in sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and laser vein removal, you can get rid of spider veins. If you don’t like to wear shorts or swim wear because of your legs, it is time to do something about it. You have nothing to lose except unsightly leg veins!
Sclerotherapy from Adam and Eve Med Spa in Scottsdale Arizona is a medical procedure used to eliminate spider veins. Sclerotherapy in Scottsdale AZ involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.
A detailed examination of the patient’s venous system is made. Special instruments may be used to help the examiner determine the cause of the varicose vein and precisely where sclerotherapy injection should be placed to obtain the best results. Upon completion of the examine, the physician will suggest a treatment plan of sclerotherapy injection therapy and sometimes may combine the therapy with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and laser treatments.
The nurse, according to the treatment plan, injects a tiny amount of a special chemical called a sclerosing agent deep into the varicose veins. After the veins are injected, special dressings and compression stockings are usually placed over the treated leg(s). Most patients compare the injection to an ant bite.
Patients are advised to take a brisk 15 to 20 minute walk immediately following sclerotherapy and usually the patient can go right back to work with no interruption to their daily activity.
