Sclerotherapy Treatments in San Diego

sclero3There are many misconceptions on how sclerotherapy treatments actually work. From online forums and videos posted may or may not have accurate information. Your best bet is to contact a vascular specialist that can answer any questions you may have on vein treatments.

At The Secret Vein Clinic, Dr. Peter Mann has devoted himself to treating patients with vein concerns such as spider veins, varicose veins, and even venous reflux disease. The first step to properly treating your veins is by undergoing an initial ultrasound screening. With an ultrasound allows the doctor to look deeper into the veins for any insufficiency and will be able to dictate which treatment route is best for you.

Depending on the ultrasound results, sclerotherapy is a common and effective treatment for varicose veins. The treatment can help the appearance of varicose veins and also spider veins by attacking the problem at the source, the “feeder veins”. With sclerotherapy, there are some restrictions: compression stockings of 20-30mm must be wore for 7 days in the day time, not in the evening or to bed and avoid any aerobic exercises for 7 days such as running, tennis, or even jacuzzi but walking is recommended.

Post sclerotherapy there may be some bruising and discoloration but with time will eventually fade away. You will want to schedule additional treatment every 6-8 weeks to allow the veins to properly heal in order to resume sclerotherapy. Keep in mind, the veins treated will not all fade away with a single session but 3-6 treatments will be needed for best results.
