Undergoing a medical procedure, whether surgical or nonsurgical, can be a stressful experience. If you’ve been considering treatment for your spider and varicose veins, but are nervous about what to expect, we have a solution for you. At California Vein Specialists, we now offer sclerotherapy with nitrous oxide to cosmetically approve the appearance of those red, purple and blue cord-like veins in a relaxing manner.
What is Sclerotherapy With Nitrous Oxide?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive vein treatment that effectively minimizes the appearance of unsightly veins. When used in conjunction with nitrous oxide, patients can expect a more relaxing procedure. While nitrous oxide has been used in the medical and dental communities for more than 150 years, its use in varicose vein surgery is fairly new.
Since introducing this option into our practice, we have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from our patients. If you have been delaying your cosmetic goals in fear of a painful procedure, consider sclerotherapy with nitrous oxide for a more pleasant experience.
What Can You Expect?
On the day of your scheduled treatment, one of our specialists will bring you to our procedure room to administer the nitrous oxide. While you will be completely awake and aware of what is going on around you, the drug will essentially block any pain and reduce overall anxiety.
Dr. Leary will then begin by injecting a solution into your affected veins. The solution will work by attacking the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and be absorbed by the body. Healthy blood vessels nearby will then receive a steady flow of blood to improve the circulation in the area.
What Are the Benefits of Nitrous Oxide?
Sclerotherapy with nitrous oxide allows patients to be fully awake, yet calm during the procedure. Other advantages to the sedative agent include:
- No mechanical ventilation necessary
- Minimal side effects
- Fewer complications
- Quicker recovery times
- Less expensive
