When your veins start to become so apparent and unsightly that you are forced to avoid wearing shorts to limit the embarrassment of exposing your legs, it’s time to do something! The Soffer Health Institute has several non-invasive solutions to treat either varicose veins or spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a treatment used virtually eliminate small to medium sized varicose veins. If you have more extensive damage, don’t worry because you could still be a candidate for treatment; however, noticeable results may take longer. The sclerotherapy treatment involves injecting a solution into each bulging vein. Basically, after this solution runs its course, your veins will begin to shrink and fade as your blood is now being transported by much healthier veins.
Why should I consider having sclerotherapy?
Besides being able to make you look and feel better about yourself, sclerotherapy also has actual health benefits. For instance, your circulation may improve, and if you previously suffered from heaviness, aching, or fatigue, then you may also find that these problems are no longer an issue for you once the pain is eliminated. The Soffer Health Institute is conveniently located in Aventura and has several other clinics like Pembroke Pines, FL to better assist you.
Is there any way I can prevent or limit spider veins from forming again?
While unfortunately, you can not completely prevent those unattractive varicose veins, after you undergo sclerotherapy treatments in one of our professional practices such as our Deerfield Beach office, you can do the following to help reduce it: Keeping your legs elevated isn’t just good advice for pregnant women to follow. While in a seated position, keeping your legs raised and supported simply helps reduce spider veins from growing. Another good practice is to exercise as often as possible. Anything that involves actively engaging your calf muscles is great for reducing the number of varicose veins from emerging.
