Endovenous chemical ablation is a popular treatment option for varicose veins. It combines the use of ultrasound technology and sclerotherapy to effectively close off the veins, eventually making them fade from sight. The first step is to pinpoint the location of the problem veins. A medication is injected into the veins and is monitored through the use of an ultrasound to see the progress as it targets the varicose veins. This will ensure that any problem veins that are deeper beneath the surface of your skin will be addressed as well.
The chemical that is injected during this procedure will irritate the problem veins, forcing them to cave in or collapse upon themselves. This will shut the veins off from blood flow. Eventually, healthy tissue will replace the varicose veins while your blood finds a new pathway to the heart.
Why Choose Endovenous Chemical Ablation?
Many patients choose endovenous chemical ablation because it is minimally-invasive. You don’t have to deal with invasive surgery or a lengthy recovery. You don’t even have to take that much time out of your day. Your procedure can be performed in the convenience of our office. Once it is completed, you can head back to your normal routine without any downtime.
Endovenous chemical ablation is effective in that it gives our doctor immediate feedback as the chemical’s progress through your body is viewed on the ultrasound monitor. Unlike other treatments that only deal with problem veins at the surface of your skin, you can nip the problem in the bud by going deeper with this alternative.
Why Treat Your Varicose Veins with Endovenous Chemical Ablation?
Varicose veins involve a faulty issue with your veins. You have valves within your veins that are supposed to close once the blood passes through in order to avoid a backflow. When you have a problem vein, the valve fails to close. The blood starts flowing backward and forms a pool in your affected vein. The next thing you know, it begins to bulge until bulging, twisting lines appear on your legs.
Leave varicose veins untreated and they will only get worse, including any that are hidden deep within your legs. As they get worse, you’ll experience a constant ache and your legs will feel heavy, not to mention the fact you won’t want your legs to see the light of day because of how bad your problem veins look. Your legs will feel heavy and you may even have trouble walking.
