Effective Treatment Options for Reticular Veins
Though not as unsightly as varicose veins, reticular veins can also cause cosmetic problems. Advances of recent years have made eliminating reticular veins simple and quick, with no downtime and minimal discomfort. Sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy are two effective procedures for removing reticular veins. Sclerotherapy uses an injection of a chemical solution directly into the vein to shrink and then collapse it. The vein tissue is subsequently absorbed by the body, thereby eliminating the vein. Microphlebectomy is used to remove both large and small veins. In this procedure, tiny holes are made and the reticular vein can be removed through these openings. The openings heal, leaving almost no visible scarring. It can be performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and minimal downtime.
Selecting the Best Reticular Vein Treatment for You
The choice of treatment options for removing reticular veins or treating any other vascular condition should be made in consultation with a medical specialist. The decision is typically based on the size of the vein to be treated, the patient’s medical history and other factors.
