Approximately one in four women in the United States will be diagnosed with varicose veins at some point in her life. If you one of these women and you have developed the bulging veins in your legs, then you already know how harmful they can be to your self-confidence. You can usually hide them by wearing long pants or jeans, but in the summer time, when you want to wear shorts or a swimsuit just to stay comfortable, you might find yourself staying in rather than enjoying the outdoors. Varicose veins make doing things that were once fun, like spending time at the beach, a chore.
The sight of the varicose veins is only one problem. The other thing that you have most likely noticed is that you constantly feel pressure in your veins. The longer that you are on your feet, the more noticeable this pressure becomes.
Most women try to treat their varicose veins by wearing compression stockings. Sometimes the stockings work, as they are especially good for reducing the appearance of spider veins. However, the more engorged your varicose veins are, the less effective the compression stockings are going to be.
The best way you can control your varicose veins is by ensuring that they’re not a sign of something more serious, such as a blood clot. You can do this by talking to a spider vein removal Dallas treatment center. They can help you deal with the spider veins and even provide sclerotherapy Dallas treatment.
Sclerotherapy is among the most popular ways to deal with both varicose and spider veins. The treatment works by having a sclerotherapy Dallas specialist insert a needle into the vein and injecting a solution into the vein. This solution hardens the wall of the vein. As the veins just below the surface of the skin are mostly superficial, the body simply redirects the blood elsewhere. This treatment is typically done in multiple sessions, eventually causing the vein to disappear.
The needle that the spider vein removal Dallas specialist uses for the Sclerotherapy is very tiny. Most people don’t even notice when it is being inserted into their veins, and the ones who do, report that all they notice is the tiniest of pricks, it’s no more painful than getting bit by a small bug.
If you have severe varicose veins, the sclerotherapy Dallas specialist will need several sessions. For larger veins, sometimes other treatment options are preferable. The sclerotherapy Dallas specialist is going to start with the largest veins. When they have been reduced, the spider vein removal Dallas will begin. For large veins sometimes surgery is recommended.
When you have the Sclerotherapy done by a spider vein removal Dallas specialist, the procedure is minimally invasive and it will only take the skin a few hours to seal over the needle hole. However, since the skin has been broken, you will want to make sure that you keep the area clean for the remainder of the day, which will reduce any chance of the injection site becoming infected.
