Sclerotherapy Can Be A Good Treatment For Varicose Veins

if you have started to notice that you have varicose veins in your legs, you may wonder what you can do to treat them. 

Varicose Veins

While these veins tend to happen most in your legs, they can actually show up anywhere on your body. But what are they? Well, they are tiny veins in your legs where the blood has started to pool in those veins and cause them to bulge and be painful. The veins in your legs are different to most of the other veins in your body. Since they are having to work against gravity to get the blood back to your heart, the veins have small valves periodically through them. Those valves help get the blood back up to your heart, and they make sure that the blood doesn't fall back into your legs. When those valves start to fail, the blood can pool in those veins, which makes them bulge, which does more damage, and so on and so forth. If you have varicose veins, what can you do to treat them?


The most common treatment is for you to get in injection in the vein. The injection is generally salt water, although your doctor may prefer to use something else. The doctor gives you the injection, and it causes the vein to collapse and be unusable. When the vein collapses in on itself, whatever blood is left in there will clot, and the sides of the vein will stick together, making sure that they won't open back up. Eventually, the veins will turn into scar tissue and won't be visible.

There isn't a significant risk of damage to your leg because the blood will just go to other veins and move that way, making sure that all your tissues are still getting the necessary blood. There may be some pain during the treatment, while the injection is happening, but in general, you should feel better after the treatment because then you won't have the bulging, uncomfortable varicose veins in your legs anymore. Your legs will look better too because the veins will look like they are clear. 

If you are noticing that you have varicose veins in your legs, you may want to get rid of them as soon as possible. Sclerotherapy can be a great way for you to get rid of them and for your legs to look and feel better. For more information, contact a company like Varicure Vein Center.
