Varicose Veins (Varices) Sclerotherapy

A Varicose veins sclerotherapy effectively and gently removes small enlarged veins, telangiectasia, and large varices, which can trouble both men and women. However, they’re not removed for aesthetic purposes, but mainly as a prevention against the occurrence of more serious health problems, including thrombosis, varicose ulcers or lymphatic system diseases. A Varicose veins sclerotherapy can be used as a major independent treatment with a focus on the lower limbs, and nowadays, with its safety and effectiveness, it’s used more than a classical surgical method that is more burdensome for the organism, and ideally complements the already mentioned laser treatment and surgery.

For whom is the Varicose veins sclerotherapy intended?

A Varicose veins sclerotherapy is suitable for all who are troubled by minor telangiectasia, but also large varicose veins, which are not only caused by congenital predispositions, poor regimen, obesity, smoking, hormonal fluctuations, insufficient physical activity, long periods of standing or sitting, high blood pressure or several combinations of these factors. Problems can also occur in pregnancy.

What actually are varicose veins?

In the case of an insufficient or overloaded venous system, swellings, papillae and varicose veins may form on the lower limbs. In the venous valves as a result of incompetence, there is a poor blood flow towards the heart, the strength of the vessel wall is reduced, the veins are enlarged and they form the so-called aneurysms which, if untreated, can cause major health problems, for example, a blocked vein can provoke up to pulmonary embolism, thereby endangering your life. Typical varicose veins symptoms are convulsions, swelling, pain or a feeling of heavy legs, etc.

Simple prevention involves wearing elasticated stockings and taking medication to relieve the swelling, which reduces the chances of further incidence of varicose veins. However, any varicose veins that are already in place, won’t be eliminated.

 

Procedure Course

The sclerotherapy injection for varicose veins is a day-care procedure – a special sclerosing agent is injected into the affected vein with a micro-needle, which disintegrates the vein and gradually closes it, then converts it into fibrous connective tissue that’s absorbed by the organism. After varicose vein sclerotherapy treatment, it’s recommended to wear elasticated bandages or compression stockings to prevent the blood from returning to the vein to prevent it from being arched again. After the short varicose vein sclerotherapy procedure, where the injection site is covered with a gauze patch and after applying a stretching elasticated bandage, the patient returns to normal life.

The resulting effect of a varicose vein sclerotherapy always depends on the correct acting of the compression effect, so it’s very important to follow the attending physician’s instructions for a month and wear the compression bandage or stockings for the specified period, which is approximately 4–6 weeks, except for personal hygiene purposes.
