For some time there was clearly just one single way to eliminate varicose veins which would be to surgically take them out (otherwise known as “stripping”). Unfortunately, the outcome were often unsatisfactory as a result of complications relevant to the surgery – this is actually a major surgery; the number of years off work, especially if you do manual labour; and also the scars that happen to be the inevitable results of this method. Although not even those problems were the largest issue; for the majority of patients, the biggest issue was the appearance of new veins where old veins was.
Around twenty years ago, the explanation for this is made clear – it was the consequence of new veins growing form the stump from the old vein. Essentially, this resulted in as the vein was remove, it was actually more so pruned together with the inevitable results of new increase in a similar region. This situation made some time suited to non-surgical operations that treated the vein through the “inside” and caused it to shrivel and never stimulate new vein growth.
Stripping is almost never done anymore and at Vein Doctors Group, all our treatments and services are tailored specifically to the unique requirements.
This spider veins cream is an excellent alternative to traditional invasive surgical vein stripping and is used to treat larger veins. In opposition to surgery, this won’t give you any scars since it doesn’t involve any incisions and there is absolutely no desire for bed rest, hospital stays or general anaesthetic.
This requires injecting an answer in to the affected vein containing a sclerosis fluid. This will cause a reaction inside the vein, it gets hardened and its particular blood flow is slowly stop. The vein will quickly fade and finally it gets nearly invisible. Dr Varcoe would rather use Sclerotherapy jointly with ultrasound as varycosde injections in to a vein don’t guarantee the highest standard of care.
Like regular sclerotherapy, this ultrasound guided version also involves a sclerosis injection in to the affected veins. The ultrasound guides the injection – both its placement and required number – to guarantee maximum results. The ultrasound is also used to ascertain the success in the treatment and in case any other treatment if neccessary.
