Explaining the Sclerotherapy procedure for Downey patients

Spider veins, those tiny red, blue, or purple veins that are often found in clusters in the legs, can cause problems for patients who have them. Not only can they cause self-consciousness, they can, in some instances, be sore or itchy. Patients who are bothered by these veins often avoid wearing clothing that shows their legs because they are embarrassed. Those same patients are thrilled to discover that Dr. Douglas Blose in Downey, CA, has the technology and experience to help them reduce the appearance of the veins, giving them back the confidence to wear skirts and shorts.

With sclerotherapy treatment, a sclerosing solution is injected into the veins in the legs, causing them to close. The body will redirect the blood flow into healthy veins while the treated veins are absorbed into the body and disappear. Patients often wonder what to expect when having this treatment performed at Douglas A. Blose, M.D., Inc. Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery. The procedure takes place in the office while the patient rests comfortably. The amount of time to allow for both the appointment and for recovery depends on the number of veins that must be treated.

When the procedure is over, the patient will be given instructions for what to expect in the coming days. Some patients might experience slight bruising or soreness for the first day or two. Patients should be sure to move around and go for walks in order to keep the blood moving and to speed the healing time.

The Sclerotherapy procedure offers great and predictable results for patients who have undergone the treatment. It helps patients who are embarrassed by visible veins improve the appearance of the legs and regain the confidence to wear shorts and skirts again.

If you are looking for a safe and effective way to get rid of your spider veins, call the office of Dr. Blose today to learn more about the procedure and its advantages or to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
