Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

Imaging & Interventional Specialists are experienced and successful in dealing with spider veins (and varicose veins) using a variety of “pinhole” procedures including sclerotherapy. Spider veins are discolored thread-like red or purple irregular lines along your legs. Varicose veins are overfilled veins and appear bulging, lumpy or twisted.. They can cause symptoms such as leg heaviness, leg pain with standing, leg numbness and restless legs and lead to leg discoloration and leg ulcers.

Sclerotharapy involves injecting especially formulated chemical solution into the spider veins or culprit varicose veins. This stops blood flow in these veins which improves the appearance of spider veins and eliminates your problems caused by varicose veins. Our board-certified vascular physicians offer in office diagnostic testing and will customize a treatment plan to address your varicose veins. Our medical team will focus on treating your varicose veins to eliminate them and the symptoms they cause..

What are Spider Veins and Varicose Veins and How are They Caused?

Spider veins are threadlike lines caused by tiny superficial veins widening in clusters. Usually there are no symptoms although some people may experience itching or mild pain. Spider veins may be inherited, caused by pregnancy, job or lifestyle when lone periods of sitting or standing are required. Underlying venous insufficiency can also cause spider veins.

Varicose veins are caused by veins becoming overfilled due to failing valves. When valves fail instead of leg muscles pumping blood towards the heart as we move then blood refluxes towards the feet and veins fill and bulge. A range of symptoms can develop due to the bulging vessels.
