Sclerotherapy Procedure in Florida

Sclerotherapy Miami at Jolie Plastic Surgery is like art. Our Miami plastic surgeons have the experience, skill and tact this procedure requires.

There are many factors involved in achiving good results such as the size and type of needle used, type of solution and its concentration, the pressure used when the solution was injected, the volume of the solution and even the size of the syringe.

Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting a drug into the vein which collapses and produces its demise; a substance is used to close varicose veins Miami. The substance should be inoculated into the vein to instigate irritation and staining on the inside of the vein. Usually a lens and direct light are used to magnify a specific area. This intravascular injection is often used on the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. It can be injected at the clinic while standing. You may need a number of treatments to help close off the vein.

Treatments can be done every four to six weeks. In subsequent treatments, legs are covered to reduce swelling and help with the healing process.

Transilluminated Sclerotherapy

Spider veins are fed from dripping blood from a vein or primary reticular feeder vessel. As the root of a plant, this feeder vessel is not visible to the eye but is the means of contact with spider veins.

During trans-illumination guided sclerotherapy, fiber optic light skin that looks at the feeder vessel is placed. With the illuminated feeder vessel, the sclerosing solution is injected directly and more accurately into the vein. Often, spider veins disappear and the patient is able to avoid having to inject them directly, 2 or 3 sessions are required and both methods can be combined in order to achieve optimal results.

It is a quick and simple process that is not painful. The patient should only be bandaged for the next six hours. In general, the person can resume regular activities after surgery without requiring extreme care. However, Jolie Plastic Surgery surgeons recommend avoiding sun exposure until irritation subsides because skin spots may appear.

Micro Sclerotherapy Miami

Micro Sclerotherapy can be used to remove vascular and other minor spider varicose veins. A small amount of fluid substance should be vaccinated into the vein with a fine needle. The substance damages the inner lining of the vein, prompting the vein to close. Sclerotherapy side effects may vary depending on the inoculation method. People with allergies may want to be careful. For example, it may cause Sotradecol allergic reactions, but this is uncommon. Also, the skin can be burnt if the needle is not placed properly or leave a permanent stain on the skin which is generally caused by the dispersion of blood cells in the tissue after the vein has been injected and may disappear over time. Sclerotherapy may also cause blood clotting and scarring.
