The Vein Clinic has been treating varicose veins in Victoria since 1995. We proudly serve all of Vancouver Island and beyond. Dr. Malo's practice includes leg vein treatments using sclerotherapy, compression sclerotherapy, echosclerotherapy (also called endovenous chemical ablation or foam treatment) and surgical treatments (ligation) under ultrasound guidance.
Some of the advantages of doing sclerotherapy instead of other treatment options include:
It is non-surgical.
There is minimal discomfort.
There is no downtime.
There is cosmetic improvement.
It relieves leg pains, swelling, and tired legs.
It is affordable.
There are a variety of causes and symptoms for varicose, spider, and reticular veins.
Sclerotherapy – medication injected into the veins causing them to collapse and eventually disappear over a 2-4 week period – is still the gold standard for the treatment of leg vessels. Not only a cosmetic treatment, this simple office procedure can also relieve the pain, fatigue, and swelling caused by varicose veins. It can also eliminate even larger, deeper varicose veins without surgery.
Some vein diseases, however, are too severe and may require more than simple injections. Dr. Malo will review all available options and help you select which treatment is best for you. His complete examination and a full history of your vein disease will help him determine the best course of treatment.
Dr. Malo strongly believes that a duplex ultrasound examination is essential for the diagnosis and treatment of most vein disease.
