Treating Spider Veins With Sclerotherapy

Do you live with varicose veins, or spider veins?  Have you ever considered seeking treatment?  Metroview Vascular and Surgical performs sclerotherapy, along with other treatment options. The procedure involves a direct injection of a salt based solution into the vein, which irritates the vein’s lining, causing a clot, which will swell and then fade from view over time. Anybody who suffers from varicose veins or spider veins can consider the therapy, but it is a good idea to engage in an initial consultation with a physician in order to ensure that you are a good candidate. The treatment is as simple as injecting the location with the solution, and recovery time is relatively minimal, only several weeks before bruising and swelling disappears entirely. Mild discomfort, cramping, and general itching around the area are to be expected for a few days. Except for these minor side effects, individuals can expect a relatively painless recovery process that will not hinder their abilities to go about their days.
