How Long Do the Effects of Sclerotherapy Last?

August 7, 2018 • Desert Vein Institute • Vein Treatment

Varicose veins are not an isolated ailment, but rather a condition. If you have the tendency to develop varicose veins, our vein doctor can eliminate the bulging, discolored, diseased veins–but the tendency is still there. Your vein treatments could include sclerotherapy injections and/or laser vein treatment. After the procedure, your treated veins won’t come back–they are gone forever. But, because these unsightly veins usually happen due to a combination of factors, you may tend to continue developing new ones.

Customized Las Vegas Vein Treatments

As part of our personalized vein care, Dr. Iwamoto will conduct an exam to evaluate your vascular health. Based upon this, our vein doctor will recommend specific lifestyle changes or other treatments to help keep your varicose veins from recurring. Even if it’s impossible to prevent recurrence completely in your case, following the doctor’s personalized recommendations should reduce the incidence of future vascular problems for you. 

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins can occur when blood vessels stretch or valves inside the vein leak, allowing blood to flow backward and pool, creating the discolored and/or bulging vein. This usually occurs in the legs. Here are some of the reasons that you may need Las Vegas vein treatment. Varicose vein risk factors include:

  • Hormonal changes including pregnancy, birth control pills, HRT, and menopause
  • Being a woman increases the chance of developing varicose veins
  • Age 50 and above
  • Wear and tear due to age, or from a job that requires standing, for example
  • Long periods of standing still or sitting still
  • Heredity
  • Obesity
  • Crossing the legs
  • Wearing tight or restrictive clothing
