Varicose veins are common problems in both men and women, they can look undesirable and can also cause pain in the legs. If left untreated they can get worse and can also bleed easily. Meaning, the skin in that area could be more susceptible to infection. This is why varicose veins are not just an aesthetic issue, but also are considered a medical problem.
There are different ways for treating varicose veins however sclerotherapy and injecting specially prepared foam inside large varicose veins have changed the way that we treat this problem nowadays. There is much less need for surgical intervention.
The success rate of this treatment is very high and the procedure itself doesn’t take longer than 30 minutes. There is no downtime and patients can resume their work and normal activities straight after the treatment. All they will need to do is wear pressure stockings for a few days and make sure they stay active.
Using sclerotherapy we can also treat spider veins in legs in a few short sessions after treating the larger veins. Usually, with spider veins, there is no need to wear pressure stockings and the treated veins start diminishing in a few weeks as the body starts absorbing them.
