Frequently Asked Questions About Vein Treatments
Q: What are vein treatments?
A: Often, your options for vein treatments are sclerotherapy or laser treatment. Both procedures are quick and can be done in-office. The procedure should be done in less than 30 minutes and you can get back to your daily activities with no downtime needed.
Q: What are the differences between vein treatments?
A: There are two main types of vein treatments offered by our doctor. The first is laser treatment. Your doctor will use a laser to target large varicose veins and make them shrink and disappear. With sclerotherapy, your doctor will inject a solution into these veins which also make them shrink and disappear.
Q: How many treatments are needed?
A: It depends on the severity of your varicose veins and how many you’re dealing with, but a majority of cases can be dealt with in two sessions. You may need more, depending on the results you’re looking for and how your body reacts to either procedure.
