Residents of the Mount Pleasant area who are struggling with the presence of unwanted visible veins many want to have a discussion with our healthcare professionals about the use of sclerotherapy. It is a proven treatment method for the removal of spider veins. In addition, very little risk is associated with the procedure, and it can be done in an office setting.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is done when the doctor uses a needle to inject a solution into the unwanted veins. It is often some derivative of a salt solution. Its purpose is to close off the veins by irritating the walls and thickening the blood inside. The irritated walls will then stick together and collapse. After that, the tissue that remains will begin to be absorbed by the body. Over the course of the following few weeks, these veins will disappear from view.
There are two primary reasons individuals with these unwanted veins may want to have them removed: appearance and health concerns. With spider veins, the issue is typically limited to that of an aesthetic nature. Only in rare situations do spider veins produce uncomfortable symptoms or create risks for more serious health problems. They can, however, have a devastating impact on a person’s level of self-confidence. This is made worse by the fact that they often appear on the face as well as the legs and chest.
