A medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and “spider veins.”
During sclerotherapy, the physician injects a solution directly into the affected vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into harmless scar tissue that fades from view. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure and has been used for many years.
Advanced Sclerotherapy involves newer techniques and medicines to achieve greater improvement in a safer and more tolerable way.
The arrival of warmer weather in Edmonton brings with it longer days, bare legs and an extra pep in your step. All year, we anticipate the warmer temperatures and the longer days, not to mention that cute wardrobe that naturally goes along with the change in season.
However, for countless men and women, the warmer weather brings about a feeling of dread rather than excitement. Putting on a sexy summer dress or a trendy pair of shorts can mean embarrassment due to the web of spider veins covering their legs.
By the time we hit middle age, nearly half of all women and a quarter of men will have experienced telangiectasia, also known as spider or thread veins, These odds continue to rise with each passing decade.
Spider & Varicose Vein Treatment
Fortunately, at the Rao Dermatology clinic treating these pesky veins is straightforward thanks to our proven Sclerotherapy procedure that is used to treat varicose veins and spider veins.
The Sclerotherapy procedure involves using a solution that is injected into the problematic vein – causing it to collapse and close up. This forces blood that was previously pooling in the vein to find a more efficient route to the heart, thereby improving blood circulation throughout the body. The unwanted vessel then starts to shrink immediately, and slowly dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein.
