Varicose veins look terrible. Those are the wormy, bulgy, blue veins that you will commonly find behind the knee and near the ankles where the pressure on the veins has caused the blood to pool. It makes your legs look like a road map in relief., and that’s not attractive at all.

They are mostly harmless in a health sense, but their presence can really undermine a person’s confidence, especially as it occurs mostly in women, and mostly in women who had gone through pregnancy. With the host of problems that accompany post-pregnancy, varicose veins are definitely on the hit-list of what must be decisively eliminated immediately. Fortunately, there are treatments that can bring almost instant results, and the best one is sclerotherapy.

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure available in a good Des Moines medspa where the varicose veins are injected with a special salt solution. It is intended to make that vein shrivel up and die within a few days, and it is then absorbed by the body. The procedure can be done during your lunch break and there is no downtime at all. You may feel a little swelling and discomfort from standing too long…oh, wait, that was because of the varicose veins. Removing varicose veins will eliminate its symptoms such as throbbing and itchiness in the legs, swollen ankles and feet, and of course those visible veins.

It is possible that the varicose veins may recur, especially if you do nothing to prevent them such as walking regularly, keeping a healthy weight, and avoiding standing for a long time. If they do, you can always go back to your favorite medspa and have them removed again. It is cheaper and more convenient than having surgery, although surgical removal is more effective.
