Varicose and spider veins cause physical discomfort and cosmetic embarrassment for many men and women. These problems may be caused by age, hormones, circulation, and even pregnancy. So, what can you do to reduce the appearance of these veins? There are various options, including exercise, changes in diet, and losing weight. While these methods may work, another proven method that can help alleviate the problem is Sclerotherapy, a quick and easy injection treatment offered at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa!
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy at Emerge Medical & Well Spa involves 30-minute sessions where a salt solution called sclerosant is injected into the affected areas. The solution helps reduce the size and appearance of unwanted veins by rerouting blood flow to healthier veins.
How Soon Can I Expect Results?
You can expect to see results from small varicose or spider vein treatments in three to six weeks, and larger veins may take three to four months. Treated veins generally do not reappear, but it is possible for new veins to show after treatment.
Depending on the severity of the condition, patients may need to undergo more than one session. Following a Sclerotherapy treatment, patients may experience mild discomfort and are advised to avoid strenuous activity for a week.
Who Can Undergo Sclerotherapy?
If your legs have spider or varicose veins that cause you physical discomfort or embarrassment, you may be a good candidate for Sclerotherapy. Eligibility for this treatment is decided on an individual basis. Factors that may affect your eligibility include pregnancy, if you take birth control, if you have had a blood clot in the past, and your general medical history.
