Say Goodbye to Unsightly Leg Veins with Sclerotherapy
Tired of hiding your legs behind long skirts and pants due to your varicose or spider veins? Sclerotherapy offers a minimally invasive way to reduce the appearance of unattractive surface veins.
At Varicose to Perfect in Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Sukir Sinnathamby offers sclerotherapy to treat spider and varicose veins and their symptoms. Sclerotherapy is a safe and high effective treatment for reducing the appearance of both types of surface veins.
Varicose and spider veins occur more frequently in women than men. Causes can be from a variety of factors including heredity, occupations that require constant standing, obesity, and hormonal changes such as pregnancy and menopause. Symptoms can include aching, swelling, itching, heaviness, difficulty standing and restless legs.
A sclerotherapy procedure is performed by injecting the affected veins with a sclerosing solution that forces the vein to collapse and fade from view over time. The number of treatments necessary are dependent on the individual with most requiring 2- 6 treatments. Some patients may see results after the initial treatment although multiple sessions produce the most favorable results.
One of the benefits of sclerotherapy is that it is a minimally invasive treatment option that does not require anesthesia or medication. Most patients report little to no pain during treatment the treatment sessions of 15 to 20 minutes. During the recovery period patients will be directed to wear compression stockings to aid in the healing process.
In addition to an improved appearance, patients have reported a decrease in painful symptoms along with a renewed energy for activity after recovery.
