Treatment for varicose veins
If you have varicose veins, you know how bothersome they can be. Not only are they unsightly, they can be itchy and uncomfortable. These enlarged, noticeable veins can be treated with the help of our team at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills in Short Hills, NJ. The providers at our office are pleased to offer two solutions for patients to consider, including sclerotherapy and laser treatments.
Sclerotherapy is a method of treatment for varicose veins that requires an injection of a sclerosing product. This may be saline or sotradecol. When injected into the enlarged vein, these agents result in the inflammation and collapse of the blood vessels. Blood that remains in the varicose vein is safely redirected to stronger, healthier veins in the legs. Many types of varicose veins can be treated with sclerotherapy, which is a treatment option that has been around for many years and continues to be the most reliable.
With continued advances in medicine and lasers, patients can also ask about this needle-free option for treating varicose veins. Laser treatment uses laser light that penetrates deep into the skin and treats the varicose veins. The laser light energy penetrates into the vascular tissue and is easily absorbed, heating and causing a reaction in the walls of the blood vessel. As the vein gradually closes, the body then absorbs the tissue safely. The result is the effective removal of the varicose vein treated.
Which treatment is right for me?
During a consultation appointment with the providers at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, patients can learn about both of these options and get the information they need to make a knowledgeable decision regarding the treatment best for their unique needs.
