Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy at the Vein and Skin Center of Hawaii

Targeted Treatment for Deeper Varicose Veins

At our clinic, we offer Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, a targeted approach to treating varicose veins that are not visible on the skin's surface. This procedure is ideal for addressing deeper venous issues that require precise intervention.

About Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is an enhancement of the traditional sclerotherapy technique. By using ultrasound technology, Dr. Chung can visualize veins below the surface of the skin, ensuring the sclerosant solution is accurately delivered to the problem veins. This technique is particularly effective for veins that are too deep to be treated through conventional sclerotherapy.

Benefits of the Procedure

  • Accuracy: Ultrasound guidance allows for targeted treatment of affected veins.
  • Less Invasive: Compared to surgical options, this procedure involves less risk and minimal discomfort.
  • Quick and Convenient: Each session typically lasts about 15 to 45 minutes, with no need for hospital stays.
  • Quick Recovery: Patients are generally able to return to their regular activities almost immediately, with little to no downtime.

The Procedure

  1. Initial Evaluation: Starts with an ultrasound examination to assess the condition of your veins and devise a precise treatment plan.
  2. Treatment: Using ultrasound guidance, a fine needle is used to inject sclerosant into the varicose veins, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear.
  3. Recovery: Patients are advised to wear compression stockings and may be encouraged to walk around to enhance circulation and aid in recovery.

What to Expect Afterward

Most patients are able to resume daily activities right after the procedure. The treated veins typically diminish over a period of weeks to months as they are naturally absorbed by the body. We usually schedule a follow-up visit to check on the progress and determine if additional treatments are necessary.
