Are you bothered by excessive varicose veins or unsightly spider veins? Many people find that they can improve the look of their legs with exercise and diet. However, there is little one can do on their own to eliminate spider veins. That is where sclerotherapy comes into play.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy could be your ultimate solution to reducing or even eliminating the appearance of veins. The procedure is relatively straightforward and takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete. A solution is made from salt and is injected directly into the veins. The injection agitates the blood vessel lining, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood clots and scar tissue form. Over time, the appearance of the scar tissue fades away. Your legs will look amazing with this simple treatment.
What to Do Before Sclerotherapy
There are a few simple things to keep in mind to ensure the optimal outcome for sclerotherapy. They include the following:
- Schedule a pre-treatment consultation to make sure that you are a good candidate for Sclerotherapy.
- Avoid certain medications. You should speak with your physician about which medicines to avoid and how long to stop taking them before your treatment.
- Ask your medical professional about avoiding aspirin or ibuprofen. Some doctors recommend that you do not take these types of over-the-counter painkillers before the procedure.
- Do not apply any lotion before the treatment.
What to Expect After Sclerotherapy
Aerobic activity should be avoided after sclerotherapy to allow proper recovery. Some patients experience mild side effects after treatment like itching or redness. Hard lumps may form when unusually large veins are injected. Also, brown spots or lines may become visible but usually fade after a few months. In most cases, it may take up to 12 months after treatment to see full improvement and total fading of discoloration. Multiple treatments may be needed for maximum results.
