Thousand Oaks area dermatologist describes sclerotherapy treatment
Patients who struggle with varicose veins often speak with a Thousand Oaks area dermatologist to learn about effective treatment options. These veins can be unsightly and they can be itchy and uncomfortable. Many patients with varicose veins avoid showing their legs because they are embarrassed by the way they look and troubled by the problems they cause. Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos of the Westlake Village, CA area has a solution: sclerotherapy treatment.
Sclerotherapy treatment is an in-office procedure that is done by a qualified professional who injects a special ingredient called Asclera (also known as polidocanol) directly into the troublesome veins to close them up. This permanent way of treating diseased veins that result in pain and discomfort can be done quickly and easily in our practice. Some patients are worried that closing the vein can cause future problems. Sclerotherapy is done to allow the blood to redirect to healthier veins in the legs. It does not have a negative effect on one’s blood flow or health.
Sclerotherapy has been done for many years to provide patients with varicose veins an effective and affordable solution. Most patients love that sclerotherapy is quick, easy, and can be performed with little downtime after treatment. In fact, most patients can return to work and most activities immediately after their appointment with Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos. Patients who run, jog, or participate in aerobic exercise may be restricted for a week or two after treatment, but otherwise, most patients can return to their active lifestyles quickly without long recovery times.
Varicose veins do not stand a chance against sclerotherapy treatment. The results are permanent, and patients can return at any time to address any new varicose veins that may arise. Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos is available to assist new and existing patients in her dermatology practice with varicose veins or any other skin and body concerns.
