Do you have bulging and ropey veins that stick up from the surface of your skin? These veins often appear on your legs where your blood is most prone to pool. They may keep you from wearing certain clothing and they may even cause you physical discomfort. Whether you want to address cosmetic or physical concerns associated with varicose veins, we can help you with special treatments at Rejuveination in Cincinnati, Ohio.
If you do not address varicose veins, it can potentially become dangerous, and interrupt your life with discomfort, and even making it difficult to sleep. You may struggle with restless legs when you are in bed, and you may notice aches and cramps when standing or sitting for long periods. Over time, you may even develop itchy skin or skin ulcers over the veins, which can lead to infection. It is best to get the veins treated as quickly as possible using one of our excellent varicose vein treatments.
We offer three different treatments that can be used on problem veins depending on the size, and your symptoms. Sclerotherapy can be used on smaller varicose veins but may not work as well on varicose veins with large widths. During a sclerotherapy treatment, the problem veins are injected in several areas with a strong saline solution. This solution is designed to kill the blood vessel walls and shut off function of this vein. Your blood can then be re-absorbed by healthier blood vessels. The varicose veins can then be filtered out by your body over time.
Radiofrequency ablation is another option for treating varicose veins. This is also a minimally invasive solution that uses laser energy through a catheter inserted into the vein to kill the vein walls, block the vein and cause blood to be redirected to healthier veins. A local anesthetic is administered in order to ensure optimal comfort during this short treatment. While you may only need one to two sessions of sclerotherapy, you may require more radiofrequency ablation treatments for the best results.
Phlebectomy is another treatment available for eliminating problem veins. This is usually reserved for veins that do not respond completely to less invasive treatments. During this procedure, we make a few tiny incisions that allow us to reach the varicose veins. We then close off and cut away this vein, removing it through the incision. These incisions should heal without any scarring.
