You have been standing a lot at work. This has been your normal practice for many years, and by the time you make it home your legs are exhausted. While it is smart to give your legs a good workout from time to time, constantly standing all the time has an unforeseen consequence that is affecting more and more women these days than men. The problem that your legs are showing signs of is called vein incompetence. This is a mechanical problem that begins when blood starts to flow backwards and pool in the vein. As the valves of the vein have become weak, gravity is more capable of pulling blood back against the upward flow creating a situation called chronic venous insufficiency. When this occurs, your veins can swell and become visible. This is when you start to have varicose veins. Sometimes varicose veins will be discolored, sometimes they might itch and they can even become painful. What is most annoying about varicose veins is that they tend to be cosmetically undesirable. As a result, most people would rather get rid of this problem. While there are various methods for addressing varicose veins, the ultimate varicose veins treatment to go with is sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is Relatively Easy to Perform
When you visit our office to have sclerotherapy done as a varicose veins treatment, you will want to wear a dress or pants with loose legs. This is because your doctor will need to be able to easily get to the varicose veins you want them to treat. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the vein. The solution will cause the vein to collapse and eventually be absorbed by your body.
The Problem Cleans Itself Up
Over the next month or so, the old vein leg will start to break apart and dissolve. Your body will remove the debris as waste. There is really nothing more the doctor will need to do, because surgery is really not required. In fact, your body is actually very efficient at taking care of the material the vein was composed of and disposing of it.
A Quick Recovery Time
After you are finished having sclerotherapy, you can pretty much return to your normal routine. In fact, some people return to work the very same day.
