Dr. Omotoso uses Sclerotherapy, a non-surgical office procedure, to treat spider veins and varicose veins. These diseased veins do not have any known useful function and eliminating them will not affect your circulation. In fact eliminating varicose veins can improve your circulation and symptoms of heaviness, aching and fatigue.
A very small needle is used to inject a medicated solution into the diseased vein causing it to close down. The location of the vein determines if this procedure is done with or without ultrasound guidance. Your body will breakdown and absorb the treated vein and naturally redirect the blood flow to healthy veins.
This procedure eliminates diseased veins while improving the appearance of the legs.
Sclerotherapy is affordable, does not require anesthetic, and there usually is no downtime associated with this simple procedure. Patients can resume most normal activities right away.
There are different types of sclerotherapy offered – both for large, and small veins. Further information will be provided to you at the time of your consultation at the Saint John Vein Clinic. Dr. Omotoso will review your medical history, an exam will be performed and then he will discuss your treatment options with you.
To determine if Sclerotherapy is right for you, please call the Saint John Vein Clinic to inquire about a consultation at 1-506-648-7013.
