Foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. This treatment offers cosmetic improvement as well as relief from symptoms of spider and varicose veins, including the feeling of heaviness in the legs, cramping, itching, and burning. Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H. Nguyen, provides foam sclerotherapy to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Foam Sclerotherapy Procedure
Foam sclerotherapy is performed in-office and is usually completed within under an hour, depending on the number of veins being treated. During the procedure, a solution is rapidly mixed with a small amount of air, creating a foam. The foam solution is then injected into the vein through a small needle, forcing the vein to close and redirecting blood flow to healthy veins. This treatment is often performed with ultrasound guidance to ensure proper treatment of the problem vein. Some patients may need multiple treatments to achieve results.
Why Choose Foam Sclerotherapy?
Not all veins respond to the same type of treatment. Foam sclerotherapy has been found to be an effective treatment for larger varicose veins, as the solution can cover more area than the solution used in traditional sclerotherapy. Since this treatment is performed with ultrasound guidance, it is more likely to successfully treat the vein. Foam sclerotherapy is also minimally invasive and requires no downtime, allowing patients to resume work or daily activities immediately.
Patients may return to work and their normal activities immediately after treatment. Your treatment provider may instruct you to wear compression stockings and to keep active following your procedure to prevent blood clotting.
