Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa provides a wide range of non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. The med spa is also equipped to provide fantastic, genuine, and absolute non-surgical treatment for varicose veins. This treatment is known as sclerotherapy, and is widely recommended by skin care experts around the world. Patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby communities who are suffering from the problem of varicose veins have an opportunity to seek treatment at Fiala Aesthetics.
Physicians and dermatologists have traditionally used sclerotherapy as a proven medical treatment to remove varicose veins and spider veins for the last nearly hundred years. Surgical solutions for varicose veins may be considered only in very acute cases. However, most cases of varicose and spider veins are treatable with sclerotherapy in a safe and predictable manner. The sclerotherapy expert will inject a saline solution directly into the targeted veins.
The solution is designed to irritate the blood vessel lining inside the diseased vein. This causes the vein to swell and stick together, and blood clotting occurs. The vein gradually turns into scar tissue as the blood flow stops through the vein. Over a period of time, the scar tissue will exit naturally from the body and the vein will disappear completely. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa provides this treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding areas.
Who is a Suitable Candidate?
The vascular treatment expert at a med spa will first evaluate a patient’s condition of varicose veins and spider veins in the affected area to determine whether sclerotherapy is the right solution. Pregnant women may not be suitable or stupendous candidates for this procedure, but those on birth control pills may prefer to walk down this avenue.
Patients with a medical history of blood clotting will have to be closely examined, and the treatment provider will determine the eligibility of such candidates for sclerotherapy. General health of the patient will also be a consideration for this treatment. Veins that may be potentially worthy for a future heart bypass surgery may be avoided for treatment.
The medical spa will usually perform sclerotherapy treatment as an outpatient procedure. The procedure will not involve anesthesia, but sometimes a local anesthetic cream or lotion may be applied to keep the patient comfortable. Prescription medications that are approved by the FDA are usually injected directly into the targeted varicose and spider veins in the legs or thighs.
The medication acts like a trigger to treat the targeted web of veins in a larger area with minimum application of treatment. Multiple injections of the treatment may be used and a single treatment session may last for about 15 to 30 minutes.
Mild bruising and swelling may occur in the treated area, which will go away on its own within a week. The med spa may recommend the patient to wear a medical support garment to promote blood circulation in the initial days after the treatment. Long sedentary positions should be avoided and the patient should maintain an active lifestyle to maintain the benefits of sclerotherapy in the long run.
