About Sclerotherapy in Jackson Heights, Queens
Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins that are invisible or difficult to see with the naked eye. It involves the injection of an irritant solution such as a salt solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the vein, causing it to swell and making the walls sticky. The vein sticks together and closes up. The blood from this vein start to flow into normal veins and the closed vein is reabsorbed and eventually disappears.
It is a relatively safe procedure, free of complications with most patients experiencing an immediate relief of symptoms. Furthermore it eliminated the need for the surgical removal of veins. Surgery takes longer to recover from than sclerotherapy.
There are a variety of ways to perform Sclerotherapy. The doctor can choose which method is best for you. Light assisted sclerotherapy is one popular method. A small hand held light is used to illuminate the veins and tissues directly below the patients skin.

This procedure is ideal for veins that are just below the skins surface and are difficult to see. Sclerotherapy uses an ultrasound beam. It is useful for the management of leaking veins that are not visible to the naked eye or with transcutaneous illumination. Veins that leak underneath the skin can cause ulcers which are difficult to treat. This makes ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy a very useful procedure. Vein clinics in Jackson Heights employ skilled sonographers that are critical to the success of ultrasound-guided sonography.
