foam—how it works, what its benefits are, and whether or not it
could be a viable treatment option for you.
How Does it Work?
The ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy procedure works as follows. Ultrasound
technology is used to locate the vein. Medication is inserted into the
vein. This causes the vein to shrink. Not only does this cause the vein
to visibly diminish so that it cannot be seen under the skin, it also
erases physical signs associated with varicose veins such as aching and
pain. This treatment is quicker than surgery and provides effective results.
Ask a vascular specialist at Washington Township Medical Foundation in
Fremont if you have questions about this procedure and other treatment
options for varicose veins.
