Varicose veins can really be a bother. Not only do they mar the appearance of your legs, but they can also be quite painful. When you have these twisting, raised veins running across the surface of your skin, they can make you extremely self-conscious. If you are living in pain and hiding your legs from sight, it’s time to look into a solution. Compression stockings, walking and changes in lifestyle may not be enough. Consider endovenous chemical ablation for a less invasive approach for varicose vein removal.
What is Endovenous Chemical Ablation?
Endovenous chemical ablation is a less invasive way to get rid of your varicose veins than through the use of lasers or radiofrequency energy. Ultrasound technology is used to pinpoint the source of your varicose veins. At that point, the doctor injects a special solution into the vein in order to cause the vein to collapse. Eventually, the treated vein will be absorbed by your body and fade away.
What to Expect During Endovenous Chemical Ablation
When you choose endovenous chemical ablation for varicose vein removal, you will undergo a procedure that should not take more than an hour on an outpatient basis. The procedure requires no anesthesia.
Compression stockings are usually worn after the procedure to minimize any swelling or discomfort. Unlike other procedures that require you to limit your physical activity, you will be able to jump right into your normal routine after endovenous chemical ablation. Exercise, such as brisk walking, may help you to keep your circulation flowing at optimal levels.
Why Choose Endovenous Chemical Ablation?
Endovenous chemical ablation helps you to finally say goodbye to your varicose veins. While results do not occur overnight, you will see those bothersome veins eventually fade away. You’ll also be able to do away with the aching and burning that has been your constant companion.
Endovenous chemical ablation offers you a successful alternative for varicose vein removal that is minimally-invasive. You can steer clear from surgical alternatives that open the door to more risks. Choose endovenous chemical ablation to successfully find relief from your varicose veins.
