Varicose & Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is a popular method for eliminating varicose & spider veins that has been used since the 1920’s. It involves injecting a solution into the diseased vein, causing a reaction that destroys the vessel wall. Sclerosis (hardening) of the vein then results. Blood can no longer travel through it, and blood is therefore rerouted through healthy veins. Eventually, the varicose vein disappears. Varicose veins represent not only an aesthetics issue, but also a potential health risk.
Why Wear Stockings?
Stockings help by compensating for the weak valves in your legs. They stimulate the muscles in your legs to push the blood more efficiently back towards your heart. This improves circulation and helps prevent the circulatory back flow.
