Varicose veins can cause a long list of problems, from feelings of heaviness in the legs to self-esteem issues. Fortunately, help is available with a varicose vein treatment in Houston called sclerotherapy. Watch this video to learn more about how it works.
During sclerotherapy, a vein specialist injects a small amount of a chemical into spider veins and varicose veins, which causes the veins to collapse. They are absorbed back into the body, where they are no longer visible. Sclerotherapy uses a very small needle and only causes minor discomfort that ends when the procedure is over. Depending on the nature of the patient’s vascular disease, multiple treatments may be required, typically four to six weeks apart.
