Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) is a minimally invasive procedure used for treating medium to large varicose veins. Ageless Rejuvenation Center provides this cutting-edge treatment as a part of our tailored vein solutions.
It features ultrasound technology that helps us to see dilated deep-seated veins that are not entirely visible on the surface of the skin. Sclerotherapy starts with an injection that closes the walls of your varicose veins. The blood originally traveling through these veins needs to find another route.
Advantages for Our Candidates
We are committed to the best vein solutions that we can tailor to our patients. We conduct Venous Doppler Evaluations to determine if your veins are best suited for Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy. Our physicians observe the shape, size, and pattern of the varicose veins, and determine if UGS would be an effective treatment option.
Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy uses technology where our physicians can inject sclerosant into the precise location of your varicose veins using a live view. This procedure is safe and reliable. Our physicians monitor the effect and protect adjacent structures.
The perfect plan is waiting for you.
The Step-by-Step Procedure
We start by conducting a Venous Doppler Evaluation, which serves as a map of your veins, using ultrasound. This map shows all your abnormal veins and helps us identify the source of the surface varicosities.
After the ultrasound, we will numb the treatment area with a small amount of local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Using the ultrasound mapping, your physician will inject the problematic veins with sclerosant medication while observing a live-view of the process on the ultrasound monitor.
Once injected, the treated veins will spasm shut, and your body will dissolve and absorb the closed veins. The number of injections needed depends on the mapping and severity of your varicose veins.
Following the procedure, our physicians apply bandages and compression stockings. We recommend that you wear these stockings during the day for four to seven days after treatment. On the day of the procedure, we recommend avoiding high-impact activity. You may resume your normal activities the day after your treatment.
Four to six weeks after your initial procedure, we’ll have you come back to our offices for a follow-up visit where we’ll conduct an additional diagnostic ultrasound. This allows us to find any additional veins that need treatment and address any areas of discomfort.
