Treatments for Vein Conditions
Are you one of the 40 million Americans affected by venous disease? Contrary to popular belief, venous disease is not always just a cosmetic issue and can lead to major complications if left untreated. We can help. Learn about the two main types of treatment we offer at our Vein Center in Greenville:
Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Although spider veins are not considered to be harmful (like varicose veins can be), they are often treated for cosmetic reasons. At Hunt Regional, we use a medical procedure known as sclerotherapy to eliminate spider veins.
This technique involves injecting a solution into the spider vein, which causes the vein wall to seal shut and therefore, stop blood flow. The vein then turns into scar tissue and fades away over a period of weeks
If you are wondering whether to seek treatment for a common vein condition, you can take a vein self-assessment to gather more information; moreover, it is recommended to share any questions or concerns you may have with your doctor. And for additional questions you have about our available treatments, please contact the Hunt Regional Vein Center at 903-408-5770.
