Varicose veins are both unsightly and painful. But sometimes, just the thought of vein stripping or other invasive interventions is even scarier. The vein specialists at the Vein Care Center, with numerous locations in New York City and New Jersey, have a less invasive, highly successful treatment option called foam sclerotherapy. The process is simple and performed in the doctor’s office. You can leave and resume your normal activities afterward. These experts take the pain and fear of varicose vein treatment out of the equation with foam injection sclerotherapy. Call today for a consultation.
If you suffer from varicose veins, foam sclerotherapy is one of the vein treatments your doctor may recommend. This is a procedure in which a vein specialist injects a sclerosing agent mixed with a gas into a vein to destroy the walls of the blood vessel and kill it off. The sclerosing agent is an irritant that causes inflammation and scarring within the vein.
The foam displaces blood in the vein to allow direct contact of the sclerosing agent with the thin membrane lining the inside of the blood vessel. The addition of the gas also allows the mixture to fill the affected vein completely and close it. This is an effective treatment for larger veins.
At the Vein Healthcare Center, the expert vein doctors, led by Dr. Jonathan Arad, have access to the latest medical technology, which increases the efficacy of their individualized treatments. The team operates in Midtown Manhattan, Upper East Side, the Financial District, and Greenwich Village in New York, as well as in Cranford, Paramus, Englewood Cliffs, East Brunswick and Riverdale, in New Jersey.
Foam sclerotherapy differs from sclerotherapy for spider veins and sclerotherapy for varicose veins in various ways. While your doctor may recommend these injections into a vein for varicose vein treatment, the treatments are different in the way they work.
Only a vein specialist can determine which vein injection to use. Your board-certified vein specialists at the Vein Care Center specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins, spider veins removal and other vein conditions. They use individualized, interventional vein treatments for the best outcomes.
If you’ve been diagnosed with varicose veins, your doctor may recommend foam injection sclerotherapy. Expect your doctor to follow a set of procedural steps that include:
You may experience minimal side effects from foam injection sclerotherapy, such as temporary inflammation around the injection site, allergic reaction, swelling on the injection site and mild discomfort and bruising. But risks and side effects are greatly reduced — and successful outcomes increased — when you rely on doctors specializing in vein treatments, such as the expert vein doctors at the Vein Care Center.
