What is Sclerotherapy Atlanta?

Sclerotherapy Atlanta is a highly effective treatment for leg veins, including spider veins and larger blue or purple veins called varicose veins Atlanta.

Spider veins – known in the medical world as telangiectasia or sunburst varicosities – are small, thin veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. Although these super-fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it.

A number of factors contribute to the development of spider veins, including heredity, pregnancy and other events that cause hormonal shifts, weight gain, occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing, and the use of certain medications.

Spider veins usually take on one of three basic patterns. They may appear in a true spider shape with a group of veins radiating outward from a dark central point; they may be arborizing and will resemble tiny branch-like shapes; or they may be simple linear and appear as thin separate lines. Linear spider veins are commonly seen on the inner knee, whereas the arborizing pattern often appears on the outer thigh in a sunburst or cartwheel distribution.

Varicose veins Atlanta differ from spider veins in a number of ways. Varicose veins Atlanta are larger – usually more than a quarter-inch in diameter, darker in color and tend to bulge. Varicose veins are also more likely to cause pain and be related to more serious vein disorders. For some patients, sclerotherapy Atlanta can be used to treat varicose veins. However, often surgical treatment is necessary for this condition.

How does it work?

In this rather simple procedure, veins are injected with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to collapse and fade from view.  Sclerotherapy Atlanta can enhance your appearance and your self confidence, but it’s unrealistic to believe that every affected vein will disappear completely as a result of treatment. After each sclerotherapy Atlanta session, the veins will appear lighter. Two or more sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results.You should also be aware that the procedure treats only those veins that are currently visible; it does nothing to permanently alter the venous system or prevent new veins from surfacing in the future.
