Those large veins, having a rope-like shape, and appearing on the surface of legs are called varicose veins. These veins can crop up on you slowly but steadily over years if left untreated. It could make you feel self-conscious, causing you to hide your legs all of the time. Pain is another problem that may go hand in hand with large veins. As the blood collects in problematic veins, they begin to bulge.
This can make your legs ache and feel heavy. Rest and compression stockings could be recommended to help you deal with these annoying veins, but you may need minimally-invasive, safe, and effective treatments including Endovenous Laser Ablation, Clarivein® or ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy injections.
How Do Ultrasound-Guided Injections Work?
Using injections is a minimally-invasive, maximally-comfortable form of treatment for problematic superficial veins. Also known as sclerotherapy, it involves the use of safe, effective chemicals that are injected into the vein to seal it permanently. Once this happens, the large veins will gradually fade from sight over the course of weeks to months.
An ultrasound device can be used to help our vein specialist Dr. Rosen to pinpoint the precise location for your injections. Typically, ultrasound guidance is not required, but can be useful in helping to treat the source of varicose veins beneath the surface.
Why Choose Ultrasound-Guided Injections?
Ultrasound-guided injections offer you a safe, affordable, and effective way to treat your varicose veins with a method that is minimally invasive. You won’t need to endure a hospital stay, or a lengthy recovery. Most importantly, you can rest assured knowing Dr. Rosen has your interests in mind and will provide expert care as he gets to the source of your varicose veins.
Once your treatment is over, you will be advised to wear compression stockings in the days that follow your procedure. Compression stockings and walking will help you to promote healthy circulation in your legs.
