Sclerotherapy: The Ultimate Answer to Leg Vein Removals
Submitted by Dr Gail Humble on July 14, 2011
Summer has officially arrived, and it is time to bare your legs and enjoy the swim suit weather. Often it isn’t until summer that one realizes little blue dilated veins that can make your legs look unattractive. These are varicose veins, often called spider veins. Varicose veins are blood veins that have become permanently dilated. Although we’re not exactly sure why some veins dilate and others don’t, many medical experts agree that a combination of genetics, pregnancy and hormone therapy can play a key role in the formation of varicose veins. Because these veins are constantly dilated, this impedes normal blood flow and causes congestion and swelling. But you don’t need a scientific explanation of what varicose veins (or spider veins) are – you just want a proven way to get rid of them. Scleotherapy is the gold standard to treat and remove unsightly spider veins. Dr. Gail Humble, one of the most respected aesthetic physicians in Redondo Beach, CA, has been using sclerotherapy for the treatment of varicose veins Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a medicine solution knowm as polidocinol, into the affected veins, which causes them to close up. Over time, the body absorbs the closed vein, which reduces the appearance of varicose veins. Each treatment results in about 60% reduction of veins. Even some of the larger leg veins can be successfully treated with this therapy. This is a significant improvement over hypertonic saline or other treatments offered in the past. With just a few injections, Dr. Humble can transform the look of your legs – not to mention skyrocket your confidence levels.
