Vein Therapy

What is it?

Scerotherapy is a type of vein therapy that is minimally invasive and used to treat varicose veins, spider veins and reticluar. This is a common procedure that can be performed in your physician’s office, and it is very effective in eliminating these types of veins. It involves injecting a sclerosing solution directly into a vein using a syringe. The solution then causes the vein to shrink, collapse and be absorbed by the body, removing unsightly vein abnormalities. This medical procedure has been in use since the 1930s.

Spider Veins: (Also called telangiectasias) are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They are often red, blue, or purple; and they have the appearance of a spiderweb. They are commonly found on the face and legs.

Reticular Veins: Blue/green veins located just beneath the skin, reticular veins are larger than spider veins but do not protrude like varicose veins. These vein abnormalities can be caused by several factors, including prolonged sitting or standing, obesity, pregnancy, age, heredity and gender. About 50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men in the United States suffer from some type of vein problem. Varicose veins affect half of people 50 years of age and older.

Treatments

The two most commonly used sclerosing agents are Polidocanol and Sodium Tetradecyl. They are only used to treat veins that are less than 3mm wide. Eternity compounds both of these solutions in various strengths.

While the efficacy of each solution is thought to be similar, Polidocanol is believed to be the less painful option. Polidocanol was featured on the Dr Oz Show in June of 2011.

At Eternity, we are confident with the proprietary solution that Olympia Compounding Pharmacy has created and offers in various strengths to maximize the results for each patient individually.
