For men and women plagued with unsightly spider and varicose veins the choice to wear shorts or sandals may be non-existent. There are a variety of treatments available claiming to eliminate these pesky veins, however, sclerotherapy remains the “gold standard” for elimination. Sclerotherapy is the art and science of collapsing or closing veins. A very tiny needle is carefully place in the lumen or middle of the vein and medication is slowly injected to close the vein. The outcome of treatment depends on two things: the skill of the injector and the medication injected. Healthcare providers that have performed large numbers of sclerotherapy are, of course, more skilled in this procedure than those who perform this procedure less often.
You may wonder if sclerotherapy interferes with circulation. The answer is no. Once you visualize ugly spider and varicose veins they are no longer doing their job appropriately. Veins have tiny valves inside that work to bring blood back to the heart. The veins that you can see are no longer working effectively to bring blood back to the heart, but rather allowing blood to flow away and then back. In essence, a one-way valve becomes an ineffective and inefficient two-way valve. You still have miles of appropriately functioning veins deep within your legs and feet. The risk of sclerotherapy includes bruising and ulceration. The bruising that results is due to your body’s unique ability to eliminate waste. Once a vein is closed your body sends cells that gobble up and eliminate the un-needed end product as waste. The bruising clears up within a matter of weeks. Eventually, the unsightly veins will disappear and the person will have clear legs and feet again! Unfortunately, insurance does not pay for this procedure, as sclerotherapy is considered “cosmetic.” Sclerotherapy was once considered financially unattainable for the average person. Now there is an option for those who desire clear legs and feet at an affordable price.
