- Posted on: Nov 15 2016
If you suffer from spider veins you know just how not only self conscious they can make you but feel but how uncomfortable they can be as well. Luckily, Dr. Heeringa at Northern Michigan Vein Specialists specializes in different treatment options that can help you to not only start to feel more comfortable but to start to look like your pre-spider vein self once again. As one of the best treatment options, sclerotherapy will help to get rid of your spider veins permanently. Read on to learn more.
What is Sclerotherapy?
The term “sclerotherapy” might sound a bit more intense than the procedure actually is. Sclerotherapy involves using a small needle in order to inject a solution into your veins to help get rid of them for forever. By injecting the solution into your veins, your veins will shrink, close off, and disappear over time.
Does Sclerotherapy hurt?
Anytime the word “needles” is used in order to describe a procedure, many people run for the hills. However, one of the best parts about sclerotherapy is that it is virtually pain free— in fact, many patients say that it only feels like a mosquito bite at the injection site.
Is It Really Permanent?
When it comes to different treatments for your body, it seems like the majority of treatments out there aren’t permanent— enter Botox. However, when it comes to sclerotherapy, your veins will be permanently destroyed and absorbed by your body so that they won’t come back. However, it’s important to note that your body can still continue to produce spider veins.
Don’t spend another minute suffering from the pain and appearance of having spider veins. By using sclerotherapy, you can help to get your life and health back on track.
