For some sufferers of varicose or spider veins, it can be hard to wear shorts without feeling uncomfortable. These veins are generally large and hard to hide. But there are treatments out there to reduce them. Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure that can reduce these veins by up to 80% with just one or two treatments. The veins are injected with a solution which will cause the vein to eventually close up and disappear. A great benefit of this procedure is that it can target deep veins, not just surface ones.
So when do you think this treatment was invented? 1995? 2004? How about the 1930s! Sclerotherapy is so effective it has been largely unchanged since its invention almost 85 years ago. Depending on the amount of veins, the procedure can take from 30 minutes to an hour. Right after the treatment, you are about to drive yourself home and resume normal activities. You should see results in as little as three to six weeks for smaller veins, while larger ones may take a bit longer, about three to four months. Soon you can go out to the beach in shorts with the peace of mind.
