Do you have varicose veins or spider veins on your legs that really bother you? If so, then you should know that there are vein treatments available that can help you get rid of these unsightly veins. A Vein Clinic has doctor who specialize in the treatment of varicose and spider veins.
Varicose Veins - are large, bulging veins close to the skin's surface that are most often found in your lower legs and feet.
Spider Veins - are small, thin veins that are close to the surface of your skin. And even though these super fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it.
There are a variety of vein treatments available to remove distracting spider and varicose veins. These are outpatient procedures and are minimally invasive and produce amazing results that can be seen immediately.
The ambulatory phlebectomy procedure gets rid of varicose veins through a series of small punctures made in the skin adjacent to the vein, through which the varicose vein is removed in segments. The veins are detected visually, but an ultrasound Doppler may be used as well.
Sclerotherapy intense pulsed light laser treatment irritates the lining of the vessels - either by chemical injection or heat intense pulse light - causing them to swell and stick together and the blood to clot, then become scar tissue, which fades away. There is a 50-90 percent improvement, but fading is gradual. The degree and speed of shrinkage depends on the size of the vein and your body's ability to heal.
Sclerotherapy can approve your appearance as well as your self confidence but it should be noted that every affected vein will not disappear completely as a result of treatment. After each sclerotherapy treatment, the veins will appear lighter. Two or more treatments are usually required to achieve optimal results. You should also be aware that the procedure treats only those veins that can be seen. It doesn't do anything to permanently alter the venous system or prevent new veins from surfacing in the future.
