During your initial consultation, we’ll thoroughly discuss all the details of sclerotherapy in Perth. Cost, benefits and any possible side-effects will be fully explained to you so that you can make an informed decision.
What causes varicose and spider veins?
Varicose veins tend to occur more commonly in women than in men. This difference may be attributed to a number of hormone-related factors that influence their development. In particular, birth control medication, pregnancy and menopause can aggravate them or cause them to develop. Varicose veins can occur for other reasons, such as lifting heavy weights, wearing tight clothing around your waist or knees, or if your job involves a lot of standing.
So what is sclerotherapy?
What areas of the body can sclerotherapy treat?
and other areas
The most common areas affected by varicose veins are the legs and feet, which can become swollen or discoloured due to the raised, gnarled veins. Spider veins are smaller, less severe and may be purple, red or blue in appearance.
Depending on the size of your veins and where they’re located, an individual treatment plan will be created for you during your consultation. At this time we’ll discuss with you the risks and benefits of varicose or spider vein treatment and cost. Perth patients will be happy to know that they can get successful treatment for all sizes of veins, no matter where they appear on the body with sclerotherapy at Restoration Clinic in Perth.
How does sclerotherapy work?
Varicose veins can often occur simultaneously with spider veins. If that’s the case, it’s recommended to treat the larger veins first with sclerotherapy. Perth patients may then find that the smaller spider veins disappear after a few weeks without requiring additional treatment. For this reason, it’s a good idea to schedule your sclerotherapy sessions 2-4 weeks apart so that they have time to work. This can save you money and the need to undergo further procedures.
Depending on the size and severity of the damaged veins, sclerotherapy in Perth WA can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes to complete. It’s possible that you may need three or four treatments to eliminate all the damaged veins. Smaller varicose or spider veins respond to sclerotherapy treatment better so you should notice an improvement in them within just a few weeks. Larger veins can take up to four months before any visual improvement is noticed.
What are the risks and possible side effects?
● Skin discolouration
● Red, raised areas
These side-effects are temporary and usually subside within a few days. Brown spots or lines can sometimes form close to the treatment area but these normally disappear after three to six months; however, they can last longer or even become permanent. In rare cases, serious complications can occur, such as allergic reactions to the injected solution, ulceration, clotting and inflammation. During your consultation for sclerotherapy in Perth, our experienced doctor will discuss with you all the details of the treatment, including side-effects and risks.
What to expect after sclerotherapy treatment
Staying active is encouraged because this helps to reduce the chances of developing blood clots. We recommend some walking every day as this promotes blood circulation. Gentle exercise such as light stretching is fine; however, we advise against high impact aerobic exercises or weight lifting for at least 48 hours.
