Foam Sclerotherapy Patient # 1


This patient had Foam Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins. The procedure was performed by Dana de Boer who is a Registered Phlebologist Nurse Practitioner here at The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic and who specializes in Foam Sclerotherapy among many other procedures.

Foam Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat blood vessels or blood vessel malformations (vascular malformations) and also those of the lymphatic system. A medicine is injected into the vessels, which makes them shrink. It is used for children and young adults with vascular or lymphatic malformations. In adults, sclerotherapy is often used to treat spider veins, smaller varicose veins.Foam Sclerotherapy is one method, along with surgery, radiofrequency and laser ablation, for treatment of spider veins, occasionally varicose veins, and venous malformations. In ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy,ultrasound is used to visualize the underlying vein so the physician can deliver and monitor the injection. Foam Sclerotherapy is often done under ultrasound guidance after venous abnormalities have been diagnosed with duplex ultrasound.

Check out this Testimonial from our satisfied patient

“ For the past 30 years I have suffered from severe varicose veins.  Most nights I would wake up due to throbbing in my legs and ankles.  Relief came only from wrapping my ankles with compression bandages and wearing support stockings…wearing shorts or short skirts was out of the question.  I was convinced that stripping the veins was the only solution, but fear of the actual surgery and painful recovery kept me from committing.  While discussing the problem with my family physician, he recommended the Lockwood Vein Clinic as an alternative.

From the initial evaluation, where the latest technology was used to diagnose the problem, I felt comfortable with Dr. Lockwood and his staff.  Great care was taken to discuss each treatment.  At the beginning of each session he would examine the area to be treated, share how he felt the previous treatment had progressed and inform me of what to expect for results.  Compared to the pain related to the vein stripping, sclerotherapy gave me discomfort for only a short period of time with very minor bruising.

When I look at the before and after pictures I’m shocked at the difference.  Not only do I no longer suffer from throbbing, swollen legs but also for the first time in many year’s shorts and short skirts are part of my wardrobe!

There are several factors that have impressed me since becoming a patient of the vein clinic.  One of them is the communication…between Dr. Lockwood, his staff and his patients.  In this time when medical clinics are overburdened and short staffed, when doctor/patient relationships are often based on a 15 minute window, it is comforting to leave the clinic each time impressed by the family staff and excellent treatment received.”
