Varicose Veins Treatment with Sclerotherapy

It is possible to get effective results with varicose veins treatment, how?

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins. Varicose veins can occur anywhere on the body, but are more common in the legs.

Varicose veins are not considered a serious medical condition. However, they can be irritating and lead to more serious problems. And because they can be so conspicuous, they can make people feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. But today, this undesirable situation is eliminated with the treatment of varicose veins.

What are spider veins?

A lighter type of varicose, spider veins are smaller than varicose veins and often look like sunbursts or “cobwebs.” They are red or blue in color and are usually found just under the skin, on the face and legs.

What causes varicose veins?

Varicose veins are caused by increased blood pressure in the veins. Varicose veins occur in veins close to the skin surface (superficial).

Blood moves towards the heart through one-way valves in the veins. Blood can pool in the veins when the valves are weakened or damaged. This causes the veins to dilate. Sitting or standing for a long time can cause blood to pool in the leg veins and increase the pressure in the veins. The veins may stretch from the increased pressure. This can weaken the walls of the veins and damage the valves.

What are the risk factors for varicose veins?

Varicose veins may be more common in some families (inherited). Increased pressure in the veins can cause varicose veins. Factors that can increase pressure include:

Overweight or obesity
be woman
be inactive
leg injury
To smoke
Taking oral contraceptive pills or hormone replacement

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition with blood clots in the deep veins. This does not usually happen with varicose veins. This is because varicose veins affect the veins close to the skin surface. However, with severe varicose veins, there is a possibility of developing a small blood clot in the deep veins. Blood clots need immediate medical care. Symptoms of blood clots include pain, swelling, and redness in the leg. Blood clots can also happen in the arms or other parts of the body. Call your healthcare provider if you have symptoms that could mean a blood clot.

A piece of a blood clot may break off and travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). A blood clot in the lungs is very serious and can cause death. Symptoms include chest pain, difficulty breathing, cough (may cough up blood), rapid heartbeat, sweating, and fainting. If you have symptoms that could mean a blood clot in the lungs, contact the nearest healthcare facility and get emergency help.

What are the symptoms of varicose veins?

The following are the most common symptoms of varicose veins. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

Color changes in the skin
sores on legs
Feelings of heaviness, burning and/or pain in the legs

Severe varicose veins can produce prolonged mild swelling that can eventually cause more serious skin and tissue problems. These include ulcers and non-healing wounds.

Varicose veins symptoms may resemble other medical conditions or problems. Always talk to your healthcare provider for diagnosis.

How are varicose veins diagnosed?

In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnostic procedures for varicose veins may include:

Duplex ultrasound. A type of vascular ultrasound to check the blood flow and structure of the leg veins. Duplex means two types of ultrasound are used.
What is varicose veins treatment?

Specific treatment for varicose veins will be determined by your healthcare provider based on:

Your age, general health, and medical history
scope of the situation
Your signs and symptoms
Your tolerance to certain drugs, procedures, or therapies
Prospects for the course of the situation
your opinion or preference

Medical treatment may not be necessary if there are no symptoms. However, varicose veins can sometimes get worse without treatment.

Medical treatment may include:

Raise your legs. It is helpful to raise your feet above your heart level for about 15 minutes 3 or 4 times a day.

If you have to sit or stand for long periods of time, flexing (bending) your legs occasionally can help maintain circulation. If you have mild to moderate varicose veins, elevating your legs can help reduce leg swelling and relieve other symptoms.

Compression stockings. These elastic stockings compress the veins and prevent blood from accumulating. Compression stockings can be effective if worn every day.
Sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for both spider and varicose veins. A saline (saline) or chemical solution is injected into the varicose veins.
Thermal ablation. Lasers or radiofrequency energy can be used to treat varicose veins. A small fiber is inserted into the varicose vein through a catheter. Laser or radiofrequency energy is used to transmit heat that destroys the varicose vein wall.
Vein Removal. This is surgery to remove varicose veins.
Microphlebectomy. To remove varicose veins, special tools are used, which are entered through small incisions (cuts). It can be done alone or with a vein stripping.
What are the complications of varicose veins?

Varicose veins are not usually serious. However, there can be complications. These:

Inflammation or swelling of the veins (phlebitis)
blood clots
Can varicose veins be prevented?

Steps to prevent varicose veins include:

maintaining a healthy weight
regular exercise
Extend your feet while sitting
Not crossing your legs while sitting
not wearing tight clothes
