There are two negative aspects to dealing with varicose veins. First, they are embarrassing and can change the way you do things because you do not want people to notice them. You do not want people staring at your varicose veins while you are wearing shorts, and so you may avoid going to the beach, swimming at the lake, hiking or engaging in other activities that you love because you do not want people to notice these veins. Second, varicose veins are painful. They can stop you from engaging in activities you love because the pain is too intense.
Thankfully, there are a variety of treatment options that are available to get rid of varicose veins. One non-surgical option is endovenous chemical ablation.
What is Endovenous Chemical Ablation?
Endovenous chemical ablation is a medical procedure that allows a trained professional to treat deep, large varicose veins. It allows them to treat a targeted vein to get the best results from the procedure. The medical professional will use advanced ultrasound technology to inject a liquid or foam sclerosing agent into a specific vein. The solution will affect the lining of the vein wall and cause it to stick together. The body will reroute the flow of blood into healthier veins and improve your circulation. The vein that was treated will be naturally removed by the body over time.
The great thing about endovenous chemical ablation is that a person does not need any recovery time. This treatment is minimally invasive and quick. When you come into our office, you will be able to have the procedure completed in a relatively short amount of time and then you will be able to return to normal activities. This procedure does not require the use of anesthesia.
We recommend that our patients rest for the first couple of hours after treatment. It would be advisable for them to rest in a position that allows their feet to be elevated. We will likely recommend compression hose to be worn for several days after treatment. The compression hose will promote good circulation in the legs and reduce any clotting risk.
