The most accessible varicose vein treatment in the Philippines is Sclerotherapy . It is the technique of instilling a specific solution into these vessels( tiny capillaries or larger varicose veins), using a small needle, which causes the vein to collapse and get reabsorbed. With this procedure, veins can be dealt with at an early stage , helping to prevent further complications such as eczema or ulcer formation and most patients are happy with disappearance of pain and cosmetic improvement of their legs.
In my experience, there is 80-100% improvement after the first varicose vein treatment session depending on the size, type and number of veins being treated. I try to treat all the veins in one session following the maximum daily-recommended dose of sclerosing solution. The therapeutic efficacy of sclerotherapy is enhanced when the bigger veins are treated prior to smaller veins. I use the Translite Veinlite to identify or map the feeder veins in difficult cases, with progressive spider veins that follow an irregular arborizing or cartwheel pattern. With this technique, sclerotherapy is done with ease and enables treatment of feeder veins that cannot be seen, because , they are below the skin . This Veinlite –guided sclerotherapy increases the success rate of the treatment.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure I used to treat varicose veins or blood vessel malformations (vascular malformations) and also those of the lymphatic system. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which makes them shrink. It is used for children and young adults with vascular or lymphatic malformations. In adults, sclerotherapy is often used to treat spider veins, small and big varicose veins.
