Has the economy gotten you depressed? I know I am!
Many of my friends are putting off or delaying “luxury” activities. However, this does not mean we have to die either!
Many of us, especially women, suffer from spider veins (telangectasia) and varicose veins on the thighs and legs. Many are embarrassed by them, but do not realize treatment is available.
I prefer to inject the spider or varicose vein with a sclerosing agent (which causes scarring inside the wall of the vein, causing it to scar down). I have been performing this technique for many years and have had great success with it.
This is an outpatient procedure and does not require pain medication or anesthesia. The patient can drive home after the injections are completed. The only necessary requirement is to wear a support panty hose for 72 hours after the procedure.
There may be bruising at the site of injection and the final result may take 1-2 months.
If you have very large varicose veins which are painful and bleed, you are not a good candidate for this procedure.
The cost is very reasonable. The treatment can cost as low as $50. The usual range is $400-500, depending on the amount of injections required.
I have attached a before and after photo to illustrate the effectiveness of this procedure.
