You may already be familiar with varicose and spider veins. Varicose and spider veins are somewhat similar but with a few differences. While varicose veins are bulgy, ropey, and colored protrusions on your legs, spider veins are smaller capillaries near the skin’s surface that create a spider-like pattern. Spider veins are caused due to the same circulatory problems as varicose veins.
While varicose and spider veins do not cause serious health issues, they can be a cause of aesthetic concern for some people. If you are struggling with getting rid of your varicose and spider veins and avoiding wearing short dresses due to them, sclerotherapy boise treatment may help you. Consult with a doctor today.
Things to expect from your sclerotherapy treatment
- The treatment will be done in under 15 minutes.
One of the best things about a sclerotherapy treatment is that it does not take long. In fact, you won’t even need to take leave from work or college to get it done. All you need is 15 minutes at the maximum, and you are good to go. You can walk into your doctor’s clinic and complete the procedure in 10-15 minutes.
During the procedure, you will lie on a table, and the doctor will first numb the area to be operated on. Then, they will inject a medicated solution into the veins, which will seal off the veins and dissolve them into your body.
- There are not many side effects to sclerotherapy.
If you are worried about the side effects of sclerotherapy, you can stop worrying now. Sclerotherapy is one of the best-known treatments for spider and varicose veins and is FDA-approved. It has been the gold standard for dealing with vein issues for years and has been operated on millions of patients.
The most common side effect people experience is a pinching or stinging feeling when the medicated solution is injected into the veins. While people feel a bit of discomfort, these side effects are temporary and subside quickly.
- You do not require much downtime after sclerotherapy.
One of the best things about sclerotherapy is that you do not require downtime afterward. It is a minimally invasive treatment that does not create any disturbances or interruptions in people’s lives or routines. You can walk right into the clinic, get the treatment done and go on about your day without worrying about feeling weak or uneasy. However, it is advised to walk a bit to help blood flow through the operated region.
