It’s never too late to get rid of those unsightly leg veins. If you lack confidence because of the appearance of varicose veins, sclerotherapy may be the cosmetic solution for you. At Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists, Dr. John Kayal offers improved aesthetics and relief from the painful symptoms associated with varicose veins.
Usually, just two to four 20-minute leg vein procedures will significantly change the appearance of leg veins. Smaller vessels may be treated with our CoolGlide laser. The sclerotherapy procedure is performed by injecting small amounts of a sterile solution, which irritates the blood vessels and causes your body to absorb them. There is minimal discomfort, but it may take up to six weeks to see the final results.
Impact of Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are seen as a sign of aging. Those who suffer from the condition may lack confidence due to this negative connotation. By treating varicose veins with a sclerotherapy procedure, Dr. Kayal and his team can rejuvenate the appearance of your legs.
There are also several potential painful symptoms associated with varicose veins. You may experience aches, heaviness or discomfort in the legs. The feet and ankles can swell, making it difficult to walk. Burning and throbbing sensations in the legs often accompany varicose veins. Other symptoms include night cramps or irritated skin around areas affected by varicose veins.
Some complications may occur with varicose veins, although the condition isn’t usually considered life-threatening. Ulcers may develop near affected areas, while blood clots are a threat when veins enlarge deeper under the skin. Bleeding is also possible when veins close to the skin erupt.
To determine if you are a good candidate for the sclerotherapy procedure, book a consultation at Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists. Dr. Kayal will conduct an examination and ask some questions to establish your medical history and any other relevant details. This appointment is informal and relaxed, allowing patients to address any concerns about the treatment.
