Varicose veins are no laughing matter. It’s bad enough that you have these bulging, rope-like veins wriggling across your legs. They make your legs feel heavy and weigh you down. Sometimes, they ache at night. You’ve tried walking, but all you want to do is rest your legs. You wear compression stockings, but your small varicose veins won’t go away. You know they are only going to get worse over time. You want an effective treatment that will get rid of them once and for all. Sclerotherapy at our office in Guelph could be the answer for you.
Why Opt for Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a simple yet effective way to treat varicose veins. It involves the injection of an irritant into your vein in order to make the vein’s walls collapse. This cuts off blood from flowing through the vein. Your blood will find another vein. Meanwhile, the treated vein will eventually fade away from sight.
Varicose veins are caused by a faulty valve in the vein. The valve is supposed to close when blood is passing through as it travels to your heart. When the valve is faulty, it doesn’t close and blood is allowed to go in the wrong direction. Over time, it forms a pool. It will only get larger and larger over time, making the vein bulge. If you want to get rid of the problem, you need to get rid of the varicose vein.
What are the Benefits of Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a minor procedure that takes place in the comfort of our clinic in Guelph. You don’t need surgery or extensive downtime. After the procedure, you will be given care instructions. Sclerotherapy will not get in the way of doing the things that you love to do.
