While you may feel that you are stuck with spider or varicose veins, the truth is that there are quite a few different treatment options that can help you say goodbye to these uncomfortable veins. We invite you to learn how you can get rid of veins with sclerotherapy in Torrance.
Sclerotherapy is one of the most common treatments for spider veins and small varicose veins. It has produced outstanding results. While it is mostly used to help our patients in Torrance treat these unwanted veins on their legs, it can also be used on other parts the body, like the face, chest, and hands. You do not have to worry about downtime after having sclerotherapy. You just get back to normal activities as soon as your treatment is over. It is fast, easy, and definitely tolerable.
You may be wondering what exactly is involved in a sclerotherapy treatment. One of our medical professionals will gently inject a solution into the offending veins by means of a tiny needle. So what does the solution do to the veins? It irritates the lining of the veins and causes the veins to close. The blood that flowed through those veins will be rerouted through healthier veins.
You can expect your entire treatment to last at least 15 minutes. If multiple veins are going to be treated, the treatment could last longer. After your treatment, the doctor may recommend that you use compression stockings.
There may be a couple of restrictions that you will have to be under in the days that follow your treatment. You may need to avoid using saunas, lifting weights, or doing high-intensity aerobics for about a week or so.
If you have spider veins or small varicose veins on your face, chest, hands, or legs, you do not have to live with them. You do not have to live with the fact that they are unattractive and take away from your appearance. Sclerotherapy may be all that is needed in order to help you get rid of them.
