    What Is Sclerotherapy?

    Sclerotherapy is a treatment option that doctors use to treat varicose veins and spider veins. These veins are large and lumpy, but sometimes they are even uncomfortable and painful. If you have varicose veins, sclerotherapy is one of many options to consider.

    The procedure itself involves the injection of a solution into your veins. Once inside your veins, the solution causes them to scar, rerouting blood to your healthier veins. Since the veins are no longer working they’ll collapse to re-enter your tissue and eventually fade away.

    In 2016, doctors performed more than 270,000 sclerotherapy treatments. This guide will help you better understand if the sclerotherapy process is a good option for you.

    Varicose Veins and Diet: Tips for Improving Your Vein Health

    Varicose Veins and Men: An Ignored Medical Problem

    Varicose veins are seen by many people as a female health problem. More specifically, people consider varicose veins to be a cosmetic issue that affects older women. This view is entirely false.

    Numerous studies and various health statistics prove that men are more likely than women to ignore their health concerns. The lack of treatment for varicose veins is no exception to this behavior. Many men do not see the veins as a health threat when there is no pain and no obvious medical complications.
