Varicose veins are more than a nuisance. Not only do they create an eyesore that makes you uncomfortable, but they also hurt. Your legs will ache all the time as they become worse, feeling heavy. It is all you can do to keep going. You only want to put your feet up at the end of the day, even though you are supposed to walk in order to keep them from progressing. You wear compression stockings, but they aren’t getting any better. It is time to consider a solution that can eliminate your varicose vein problem. Sclerotherapy in Orlando could help you.
What is Going On with Your Veins?
It began as pronounced blue lines on your legs. Then they started to bulge. Varicose veins are the result of faulty valves. Your valves in your veins are supposed to automatically close after blood travels through them on its return trip to your heart. When you have a varicose vein, the valve fails to close. It allows blood to head back in the wrong direction, where it forms a pool. That pool of blood will grow over time. Varicose veins will not go away by themselves. You need to have them treated by a qualified medical professional in order to get rid of them.
What is Sclerotherapy All About?
Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure that takes place in the comfort of our office in Clermont. It is short and you can head back to your normal routine when it is over. During this procedure, your varicose veins are injected with a special solution. The solution causes the vein walls to collapse, effectively sealing the treated vein. Your blood must bypass that vein and head through a healthy vein. Eventually, your treated vein will go away.
