Varicose veins are a type of painful veins that are twisted, enlarged, and swollen. They usually develop in the legs and are raised above the surface of the skin. Though they are not life threatening, they might cause severe discomfort in some cases. The common symptoms include swelling of the leg and difficulty in walking and skin symptoms which reflect the damaged skin. A Sclerotherapy Treatment is a type of noninvasive treatment used for treating such a condition. It involves the destruction of the varicose veins by injecting them with a solution called sclerosant. The solution dissolves the veins and makes the blood to flow through healthier veins. The procedure is also performed to improve the appearance of the leg. In a few varicose veins treatment, a varicose vein surgery is performed if the condition cannot be treated by injection. The veins are cut across using a laser in such surgical procedures. The recovery period of a varicose veins treatment depends on the nature of the swelling. The person can resume his normal activities on the very day of the treatment and irritation, and burning sensation are common symptoms that are associated with it. Compression socks might be advised by the cosmetologist as they put pressure on the leg and cause the blood to flow back efficiently. Recovery from a surgical procedure can take a few days and heavy works and prolonged standing should be avoided during the recuperation period.
