As you age, you may experience visible veins, particularly in your legs. These veins may make you feel embarrassed about your skin and may make you want to cover your legs with clothes at all times. However, some of these veins can cause much more than simple cosmetic issues. They may actually signal venous issues that can result in pain, itching, swelling, and even skin ulcers. With sclerotherapy in Cleveland, you could say goodbye to your problematic veins forever.
Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure that can permanently destroy and remove spider veins, as well as varicose veins. Spider veins are those web-like veins that are tiny and rest very close to the surface of the skin. They are usually little more than a cosmetic nuisance, although they can develop into something worse in some instances.
Varicose veins are usually larger and more problematic. They also rest close to the surface of the skin, but are larger and have a rope-like appearance. Varicose veins may signal more concerning problems within the veins themselves and are more prone to lead to ankle swelling, skin discoloration, and pain when standing.
Although you may try to combat the negative side effects of these vein conditions by making lifestyle changes or by wearing compression stockings while you are awake, this may only mask the actual problem. With sclerotherapy in Cleveland, the problematic veins can actually be destroyed forever.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that involves the skillful injection of a special solution into the problematic vein. This solution causes the vein to collapse and die. Your blood will simply begin to flow through other, less troublesome veins after these visible veins are destroyed.
Results vary from patient to patient. You may need more than one sclerotherapy treatment at our office in Cleveland before you see complete results. Many of our patients need two or three treatments and may need to return in the future if they experience new vein issues. It all depends on the unique situation.
