Chronic venous disease is a disorder affecting leg veins delivering blood to the heart. If the condition goes untreated, it may lead to pain, swelling, or more serious problems like skin ulcers or blood clots that can have a negative impact on your quality of life. Many people in Salt Lake City suffer from venous disease. Factors like weight gain, pregnancy, heredity, and hormonal changes can lead to the development of small veins found near the surface of your skin.
Our professional team uses a variety of techniques to remove problems like leg veins. We can diagnose your condition and develop an individualized treatment plan just for you. We will guide you through your treatment plan step-by-step so that you can return to your normal activities with little to no discomfort or downtime.
Sclerotherapy is an older treatment that is used to eliminate leg veins. It involves the injection of a special type of solution into the problem vein. This causes irritation to the vein and its eventual collapse. The blood that once flowed through the problem vein will be rerouted to healthier veins and the problematic vein will eventually fade from view.
The sclerotherapy procedure is performed in the comfort of our office in Salt Lake City. How many veins will require injection within one session is dependent upon the location and size of the problem veins and your overall medical condition.
Before your sclerotherapy procedure, you should refrain from taking certain medications. Be sure to inform us of all medicines that you are currently taking, including herbal supplements, over-the-counter drugs, and nutritional supplements. You will typically be advised to avoid blood thinners or anti-inflammatory drugs before your procedure.
