Proudly serving the Pittsburgh area in Pennsylvania, Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh is led by Dr. Valerie Drnovsek. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out out how visual sclerotherapy can remove your unattractive veins and restore your confidence in your skin.
What is Visual Sclerotherapy?
Unlike the extensive vein removal procedures of the past, visual sclerotherapy utilizes a minimally-invasive treatment process to safely and permanently remove visible veins from the surface of the skin. Using a medicated solution, Dr. Drnovsek will administer small injections along affected veins. The solution disrupts the walls of the vessels, causing them to stick together and seal off the vein, rerouting the blood to healthier veins. The treated vein then turns to scar tissue that is gradually removed by the body and replaced with healthy tissue.
What are the Benefits of Visual Sclerotherapy?
- Quick treatment sessions that can fit into any busy schedule
- No incisions
- An immediate return to normal activities
- An ideal solution for a wide range of patients
- Well-tolerated treatment that causes minimal to no discomfort
Is There Any Recovery?
Most patients are able to return immediately to normal activities, although a daily walking regimen may be recommended as the body works to remove the treated veins. Dr. Drnovsek and our medical team will discuss all relevant safety information with you prior to treatment.
Although visual sclerotherapy permanently removes treated veins, it may still be possible for new dysfunctional veins to develop in the future. Treatment can be repeated if necessary to maintain a healthy and beautiful skin complexion.
Am I a Good Candidate for Visual Sclerotherapy?
This treatment can benefit a wide range of men and women who have deficient veins in their legs, ankles, and feet and who desire to remove them using non-surgical treatment. Dr. Drnovsek and our medical team can help you determine if this treatment is right for you during your consultation, where we will thoroughly evaluate your individual condition.
