What are the Benefits of Sclerotherapy?
As a non-invasive procedure, Sclerotherapy is a preferable solution for its shorter downtime and cheaper price.
Some other benefits include:
Unlike other procedures that are designed to treat spider veins, Sclerotherapy has little to no pain at all. While patients usually feel a burning sensation at the treatment site while the injections are administered, this usually dissipates in a matter of seconds. In some cases, patients may experience soreness and muscle inflammation, but these will also pass quickly. As there is minimal pain, the procedure is typically performed without anesthesia.
Another major benefit of undergoing Sclerotherapy is that the results show up almost immediately. Patients only have to wait for one to two weeks to see a noticeable difference in the treated areas. That said, patients should bear in mind that the results will also depend on the patient’s overall health, skin type, and other factors.
Sclerotherapy works by permanently dissolving spider veins, causing them to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body. Patients who undergo the procedure can rest assured that their spider veins will not reappear. Nonetheless, patients should beware that having a genetic proclivity for developing spider veins may mean that they will develop them again.
One of the biggest pros of choosing Sclerotherapy is that patients can get back to their regular schedules in no time. Patients will have to wear compression bandages for a period of time, but they are a minor inconvenience that helps expedite the recovery process.
Sclerotherapy is one of the safest and healthiest treatment options that patients can choose when it comes to addressing spider and varicose veins.
