Varicose veins and spider veins are a major cosmetic concern for millions of women. Sclerotherapy is an effective method for getting rid of these issues with a minimum of discomfort. The treatment involves the injection of a salt solution directly into the varicose vein. As the solution causes irritation within the vein, the blood begins to clot. After a few days or weeks, the vein is transformed into scar tissue that is no longer visible under the skin. Doctors have been using sclerotherapy since the 1930s to deal with visible veins. Its effectiveness has been proven time and again, and it is among the safest medical treatments available today. You don’t have to live with varicose veins or worry about showing off your legs. Try sclerotherapy at Shelby Dermatology instead. You’ll be so glad you did.
