Treating Varicose Veins with Foam Sclerotherapy

Varicose veins…those bulging, annoying and often painful veins… commonly appear on the legs. While you can’t wish them away or make them disappear with a lotion or cream…foam sclerotherapy might be an effective solution to finally and permanently rid your legs of varicose veins.

How Can Foam Sclerotherapy Help You?

Foam sclerotherapy is a popular treatment that is used to treat varicose veins. It is a simple procedure that will only require 30 minutes or less. The first step is to identify the extent of your problems. Ultrasound technology is often used to determine whether the veins at the skin surface are an isolated problem or if they are a result of underlying flow abnormalities. The ultrasound examinations are typically covered by insurance.

If underlying problems are discovered, those are the first issues that are dealt with. Typically, the treatments we offer to deal with underlying flow problems in the saphenous veins (see https://rosenveincare.com/varicose-veins/) are also covered by most insurance carriers and Medicare.

Once underlying problems have been ruled-out or dealt with, the next step is treating the varicose veins themselves. Foam sclerotherapy is a safe and effective non-surgical technique that allows me to make varicose veins shrink and fade away just by gently injecting a chemical inside the vein. This chemical mildly irritates the walls of the veins, making them collapse and start to shrivel up over time.

The blood will no longer be able to flow through treated veins and can instantly be re-routed to other, healthier veins. After the procedure, you will be required to wear compression stockings to improve the circulation in your legs and the outcome of the procedure. Gradually, the symptoms as well as the veins will fade away.

Are You a Good Candidate for this Procedure?

The only way to find out if foam sclerotherapy is advised for you is to speak with Dr. David Rosen. If you have a condition that puts you at risk of forming blood clots, you may be advised to avoid the procedure. If you are given the go-ahead, lifestyle changes may help you to maintain your results, such as becoming more active, walking daily, and wearing compression stockings.
