Treatment Of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins may cause pain and sometimes get ulcerated. They need to be treated not only for cosmetic reasons, but also because of medical necessity. The oldest treatment of varicose veins is called sclerotherapy. In this procedure, a liquid is injected in the vein that makes the vein to collapse and become a scar tissue, which fades away with time.

In another technique called ambulatory phlebectomy, your doctor will remove the veins by puncturing the skin. A latest technique called 'closure' uses the method of inserting an energy-delivering catheter in the veins. The energy closes the veins. Different lasers are also used to treat the varicose veins and you should consult your doctor about the best treatment that will depend on your age, the condition, the site and cost. You should also discuss about the recovery period with your doctor. With the latest procedures, recovery is very fast.

There is no guarantee that you will not form new varicose veins. Discuss more details with your doctor.
