Sclerotherapy in Monroe, LA
Varicose and spider veins appear on the legs and other areas of the body. These visible veins generally do not pose a medical concern, but the way they look can make you feel uncomfortable. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers sclerotherapy for men and women in Monroe, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Varicose and spider veins develop when a vein becomes damaged. Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive treatment that destroys the damaged vein. This is preferred over treatments that require surgery to excise the damaged vein from the body.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
The goal of sclerotherapy is to damage the affected vein so that it is absorbed by the body. A chemical is injected into the vein that makes it unnecessary for blood flow. Your body reroutes the blood to surrounding veins. Over time, your body absorbs and eliminates the vein.
What Sclerotherapy Treatments Are Available?
Hopkins Dermatology offers treatments for varicose and spider veins. Spider veins typically do not indicate an underlying medical condition, but varicose veins may require further evaluation of your circulatory system. If you do have issues with your circulatory system. Dr. Hopkins may recommend that you manage the condition first before having sclerotherapy. This helps to reduce the chances of developing new spider and varicose veins in the future.
How Much Does Sclerotherapy Cost in Monroe, LA?
Sclerotherapy is not always covered by insurance, so we understand that cost is a factor. When you meet with Dr. Hopkins, she will develop a treatment plan for your spider and varicose veins. The plan guides your treatment and provides the foundation for the cost of your care.
