Everything You Need to Know About Echosclerotherapy

Do you have varicose veins that are deep and too difficult to reach? Here are some signs that an echosclerotherapy treatment could be the best option for eliminating your troublesome varicose veins.

If you are suffering from deeper varicose veins, your vein specialist might suggest an echosclerotherapy treatment. This highly specialized procedure uses an ultrasound machine to detect and visualize deeper varicose veins, allowing your physician to accurately inject the sclerosing agent into hidden, abnormal veins. 

Some of the benefits of this varicose vein treatment include: 

  • Minimal discomfort and few side effects
  • Permanent and effective results
  • Minimal cell damage
  • Quick treatment time
  • Precise and accurate results

Avoid Painful and Invasive Surgeries

For deeper varicose veins that are not visible, echosclerotherapy is a very effective solution and it can be used to address your concerns without the need for invasive surgery that could lead to infection, scarring, and other undesirable consequences.

Your Total Guide to Echosclerotherapy 

Echosclerotherapy (ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy) is used to treat varicose veins that are difficult to see and inject. With the assistance of state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, a needle is accurately inserted into the vein, and the sclerosing agent injected. 

By using the ultrasound machine, deeper veins are easier to visualize, dramatically lowering the need for surgery. This technique can replace surgery and is also useful for veins that recur after surgery. 

Why Opt for Echosclerotherapy? 

When performed by an experienced vein specialist, echosclerotherapy is an excellent varicose vein treatment option. Some of the reasons why you should consider it include: 

  • It uses the most advanced technology to precisely treat abnormal veins
  • Once the underlying veins are treated, the likelihood of developing smaller spider veins near the surface can be reduced
  • Echosclerotherapy eliminates the need for extensive vein stripping surgery, reduces downtime, and increases patient comfort

During a consultation, your vein specialist can assess your particular situation and consult on possible varicose vein treatment options and help you decide which option is right for you. 

What to Expect From an Echosclerotherapy Treatment 

If you are considering an echosclerotherapy treatment, it’s important that you understand what is involved in the procedure. Here is a basic guideline of what you can expect from it: 

  1. Duration: Generally, the treatment may take up to 45 minutes. Patients can walk immediately following treatment and resume their daily routine.
  2. Number of sessions: The number of sessions required depends on the extent of the issue. Multiple sessions may sometimes be necessary, depending on the number of veins and the expectations of the patient.
  3. Treatment sensation: Your vein specialist will use a fine needle to inject the treatment area and most patients report feeling only a mild pinprick sensation. Some people may experience a burning sensation after the injection, but this will disappear after a few seconds.
  4. Recovery: It is always best to wear compression stockings following your treatment to optimize results and recovery. Strenuous activity should be avoided for at least two days and you should try to limit your sun exposure to avoid skin hyperpigmentation.
