Unsightly veins can seemingly appear overnight. They can make smooth skin into something bumpy and not quite right. Their effects can be so detrimental to your appearance that you may be driven to hide your bare skin during every season of the year. The worst part is that changes to your diet and exercise are seldom enough to make the veins go away. They may persist due to the changes that have already occurred to make them unattractive.
Fortunately, sclerotherapy exists as a method of treating these unsightly veins. This treatment can remove them in a way that is both safe and permanent.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a special liquid into the vein. This liquid helps to “clog” the vein, which in turn allows for a clot to form. This clot restricts the flow of the blood in the proceeding part of the circulatory system. This results in the safe and long-term removal of undesirable veins.
Why Does It Work?
The reason sclerotherapy is so successful revolves around how it actively stops the flow of blood to the offending vein. This minimizes the stretching of the vein, which in turn allows for immediate improvements to be seen following sclerotherapy treatment.
Further improvements will occur as the vein is absorbed by the body as waste. This will inevitably allow you to have the same smooth and beautiful skin you had before the unsightly veins became present beneath your skin.
When Should You Consider Sclerotherapy?
The ideal time to start considering sclerotherapy is upon completing the major changes necessary to reduce the prevalence of vein disease. This may involve taking blood pressure medication, changing your diet and exercise regimen, learning how to cope with stress or a combination of many activities. Once your body has had time to acclimate to the new conditions you have created, you should wait to see if your problem veins subside. If they do not, then seeking sclerotherapy is one of the better options.
Another reason to consider sclerotherapy is if your veins cause discomfort, heightened anxiety or pain. Any of these symptoms represent an urgent problem that should be treated immediately. Given the minor nature of the procedure, sclerotherapy tends to have benefits that outweigh any potential side effects in these cases.
