Sclerotherapy Chicago

There are Two Types of Sclerotherapy Procedures for Unhealthy Veins

Every year, The Chicago Vein Institute performs more than 1,300 sclerotherapy procedures to reduce the appearance of visible veins.

Benefits of These Options

They are performed directly in the office, and anesthesia is not required Patients have minimal pain and discomfort, with no scars. There is also no downtime, so they’re good choices if people want to improve their bodies without having to take time away from work or family obligations. They can also be done on all types of skin.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

Doctors use an ultrasound and fine gauge needle to inject a small amount of special solution into the affected veins. The substance causes the veins to collapse, and it usually takes between three to five sessions to get maximally effective results. Over a period of about three to six months, the treated veins will gradually disappear. This intervention may be recommended for people with poor circulation, because it shifts blood flow to healthy veins.

Surface Sclerotherapy

This alternative is often used to eliminate spider veins. Like ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy procedures, a very small needle is used to inject a solution that targets the unhealthy veins, and they will eventually disappear. If you’re thinking about Chicago-area options to treat unhealthy veins, contact us today to find out more about both of these solutions. We look forward to helping you find an appropriate solution.
