What can New Orleans patients expect during sclerotherapy procedures?By Dr. Mary Lupo
Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that is highly effective and safe in reducing the appearance of spider veins. Viable candidates for this treatment are those who are unhappy with the appearance of the veins and those that do not have a past medical history of blood clots. During an initial examination and consultation appointment, Dr. Lupo can discuss alternative options and determine if Sclerotherapy is the best solution.
During Sclerotherapy treatment, a solution is injected into the problematic vein. This solution damages the vein and causes it to collapse, thus eliminating the blood flow and eliminating the varicose vein. Pressure hose is required for several days post treatment. Blood will reroute through healthier veins and the discomfort of the varicose veins will be eliminated.
Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure provided by board certified dermatologists such as Dr. Lupo in New Orleans. It is safe, effective, and affordable. Patients who are experiencing troubles due to their varicose veins are encouraged to schedule a consultation appointment at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology to determine their candidacy for treatment. This popular treatment is used to give patients back their confidence and self-esteem when it comes to wearing cooler clothes during the hot summer months!
