Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and tortuous (twisting) veins, frequently linked to faulty valves in the vein. They are generally blue or dark purple. People with bulging and/or lumpy varicose veins on their legs may experience cramping pain and heavy limbs. Occasionally, in very severe cases, the varicose veins may rupture, or varicose ulcers may form on the skin.
SCLEROTHERAPY FOR THE TREATMENT OF VARICOSE AND SPIDER VEINS
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.
Sclerotherapy is a proven procedure that has been in use since the 1930s.
Clients often require more than a single treatment for optimal results.
La Visage Aesthetic Clinic makes use of polidocanol as well as STD (foam sclerotherapy) for the treatment of varicose/spider veins.
After full consultation with the doctor, clients are advised on the best treatment options available to them, resulting in fantastic outcomes.
