Sclerotherapy is a popular treatment in West Palm Beach – it is designed to alleviate the physical discomfort and embarrassment caused by varicose- and spider veins. Sclerotherapy is actually a trusted and proven treatment and has been used with confidence since as early as 1930. The process is fairly simple: A solution is injected directly into the varicose vein where it causes an irritation to the blood vessel lining and causes it to lose its form and create a blood clot. The visible veins will then fade as the collapsed blood vessel becomes scar tissue.
If you have been searching for a treatment to cure varicose veins in West Palm Beach, sclerotherapy is the answer. With the help of Dr. Goldman, not only can you be rid of those unsightly read and blue marks on your legs, but you will also be freed from the shackles of the associated pain.
Are you eligible for sclerotherapy?
Varicose veins can present themselves for a number of reasons. They can be hereditary or appear for other reasons such as pregnancy, a side effect of medication, obesity, and more. Sclerotherapy might not be the recommended treatment for all sufferers. It is therefore important to have a consultation with a doctor specializing in vascular medicine to determine not only the cause of varicose veins, but also whether you are a suitable candidate for treatment thereof. Unfortunately, those who take birth control pills or are already pregnant are not considered good candidates.
Sclerotherapy treatments usually take 15 to 30 minutes in total. You may experience mild cramping or itching directly after the treatment, but will be able to drive home. It is advised that aerobic activity be avoided for a while. Walking is a good form of exercise after your treatment. Patients should avoid certain medications after their treatment for at least 48 hours – these include ibuprofen, aspirin and anti-inflammatories. It is often recommended that you also avoid hot baths, saunas, hot compresses, and direct sunlight for at least 48 hours after your sclerotherapy treatment.
