Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

(Echosclerotherapy)

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, also known as echosclerotherapy, is used to treat veins that are located further from the skin’s surface, making them difficult to see and inject. By using an ultrasound machine, deeper veins are easier to visualize, ensuring optimal results from the injections. This technique is appropriate for larger varicose veins buried deep below the skin.

Veinlite Assisted Sclerotherapy

Veinlite assisted sclerotherapy uses a sclerosing agent to effectively treat moderate to large varicose veins . The injected sclerosant irritates the walls of the vein, causing it to contract and shrink. The vein walls stick together and the vein eventually disappears. A specialized transilluminating device know as a Veinlite is utilized to better visualize the full extent of the varicosities as well as to locate its deeper origins. The solution is easily guided and delivered, making it an optimal choice for treatment. READ MORE
