If you’re one of the many women who, over time and with age, develop unsightly spider veins and varicose veins then don’t worry there is a treatment for you. Dr. Nhi Le of the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, TX helps patients treat their leg veins by reducing the appearance of them.
Varicose veins are swollen, twisted, and sometimes painful veins that have filled with an abnormal amount of blood. Typically veins have leaflets valves that work to prevent blood from flowing backward. When a vein becomes varicose the leaflet valves no longer work properly, allowing blood to flow backward, enlarging the veins.
Varicose veins are often painful, especially when standing or walking. They also can itch, but scratching them can lead to ulcers. So what’s the solution?
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessels malformations. Medicine is injected the vessels in order to make them shrink; thus reducing the appearance of varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is considered to be the gold standard treatment for varicose veins.
The downtime for the treatment is only 2-3 days, and you only need 2-4 treatments total, depending on the extent and depth of the vessels.
