How Does Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy Work?
You can’t escape varicose veins. You can wear compression stockings and walk every day. While that may help you from getting more varicose veins, it won’t make your problem veins go away. It can get to the point that your legs feel heavy all of the time like you are dragging around extra weight with every step. You have to look at an eyesore that can become painful. It’s time to do something about your varicose veins. Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy offers you a solution.
Sclerotherapy is one of the most popular forms of treatment for varicose veins. It involves having a special solution injected into your problem vein. This solution acts like an irritant, forcing the blood to clot in the vein so that it will eventually close up. Over time, it will fade away and healthy tissue will replace the varicose vein.By using ultrasound technology, our Dr. Susan Fox can be much more precise in pinpointing the source of your varicose vein. The ultrasound device is passed over your problem veins and then your injections will be made.
Why Choose Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy?
When you opt for ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy treatment, it takes any guesswork out of the process. The more precise our doctor can be, the more effective your treatment will be. Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy will take away those blemishes on your skin. You won’t have to hide your legs anymore because you are embarrassed by those twisting, blue lines that are running across your skin. If you don’t treat your varicose veins, they will only become larger and more comfortable. Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy offers you the chance to walk freely once again without problem veins bringing you down.
What to Expect During Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy
Your ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a relatively brief procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. Once you’ve received your injections, our medical professional will give you compression stockings. You’ll need to walk immediately after your procedure. Walking will be recommended on a daily basis once you go home. This will promote healthy circulation.
In time, you will see your varicose veins disappear. You can ward off more varicose veins by continuing to be physically active. Choose an exercise that strengthens your legs, like biking, hiking or walking. When you strengthen your legs, you make your veins stronger as well. Keep salt to a minimum in your diet and pay attention to your weight. Follow these simple steps and you can avoid more problem veins.
