Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy


 

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy


Sclerotherapy in our hands involves the use of a foamed sclerosing agent injected into diseased veins and makes them collapse. In ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, the provider uses ultrasound to visualize an underlying vein that might not be visible with the human eye.

How Is This Vein Treatment Different from Regular Sclerotherapy?

This vein treatment using ultrasound allows Dr. Martin and his team of specialists to see the underlying veins and monitor the entire injection. This process ensures complete treatment of the vein and patient safety.

What Is the VVC Treatment Process?

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is a simple VVC treatment using an injection of a foamed sclerosing agent. The sclerosing agent irritates the lining of the vein and causes the vein to become inflamed. The inflamed vein “dries up” to fibrous tissue and eventually disappears. Blood that once ran through these diseased veins finds another, healthier route back to the heart.

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy allows our specialists to precisely target your diseased veins and offer the most effective treatment for relieving pain and improving your appearance.

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is a fast, minimally invasive treatment that only takes 15 minutes to perform.

Why Is This Considered the Best Vein Treatment by Many?

The speed, simplicity and precision of ultrasound guided sclerotherapy make it the best vein treatment for patients looking for a minimally invasive, effective option. These procedures take 15 minutes to perform. Sclerotherapy is generally performed 2 weeks after the last laser treatment and multiple sessions are usually required to treat the accessory veins. Compression stockings should be worn during treatment and you may return to your daily activities immediately after this procedure.
