Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerothrapy
UGS or Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerothrapy is a needle-based technology that eliminates medium and large veins after saphenous closure has been achieved. Foam sclerotherapy involves mixing a chemical with air or another gas to produce a foam, which is injected into the affected vein. The sclerosant solution is used to create a reaction in the vein that causes it to collapse. The body then absorbs the vein leaving no scarring. This technique requires the use of an ultrasound machine to locate the origin of the veins and guide the location of the injection. The veins usually only need 2-3 treatments before they respond completely. This is an excellent procedure with outstanding long-term cosmetic results.
