All About Sclerotherapy and Vein Care

For quite some time, problematic veins were always treated surgically. Many people over the age of 60 may still have the perception that vein stripping is still the norm. Thankfully, it is not. Here at Family Medicine and Vein Clinic in Norfolk, Nebraska, patients have many options on how to treat varicose veins and other venous insufficiencies.

Dr. Fennessy, Northeast Nebraska’s only vein care specialist, will help to diagnose and treat spider or varicose veins, relieving pain and itching through Sclerotherapy.

What is Sclerotherapy and How Does it Work?

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used for spider vein treatment in Norfolk, Nebraska, quickly eliminating those small blue or red spider veins on the surface of the skin. Like EVRFA, Sclerotherapy involves minimal discomfort and patients can walk right after the procedure.

In the Sclerotherapy treatment, medicine gets injected into the vein through a very tiny needle. The medication causes the vein to shrink and is then absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy relieves pain and itching associated with spider veins in most patients.
