Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS)

The innovative Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) procedure is an excellent choice for achieving optimal results in reducing unsightly and painful varicose veins, especially for smaller, hidden veins.

How does Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) work?

By harnessing the power of ultrasound, hidden and abnormal veins are identified with precision. A tiny needle is then expertly guided into the targeted vein, through which a specialized foam is injected, effectively obliterating the abnormal vein. The foam is immediately absorbed by your blood, leaving nothing behind.

Unlike alternative methods, Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) does not need any surgical incisions and can treat all abnormal veins, ensuring comprehensive and successful outcomes.

Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy is the Smart Choice

When it comes to making intelligent decisions about your vein care, Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) is a superior choice, especially for smaller, hidden veins. At Region Vein, many of our new patients have experienced recurring vein problems due to outdated procedures employed by their former physicians, leaving behind many hidden and abnormal veins. In contrast, Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy is an efficient, easy, and cost-effective treatment.

With Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS), you can expect significant medical and cosmetic results through our unique non-surgical treatment approach.

What is UGFS?

This exceptional treatment protocol, performed by your Region Vein Care Specialists, employs Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) to address your varicose veins comprehensively. Here’s how it works:

  • Utilizing ultrasound technology, hidden and abnormal veins are identified accurately.
  • A tiny needle is then directed into the targeted vein, allowing for the injection of a specialized foam that promptly eradicates the abnormal vein.
  • Within seconds, your blood absorbs the foam entirely, leaving no trace behind.
  • Over the course of several months, your body naturally absorbs the treated vein, further enhancing the therapeutic process.
  • Importantly, UGFS does not involve any surgical incisions and can treat all abnormal veins, ensuring comprehensive care.

There is No Role for Surgery in Vein Care!

When it comes to vein care, surgery should never play a role in modern treatments. Consulting with a surgeon or “vascular” surgeon does not guarantee state-of-the-art vein care. In fact, non-surgeons have been the pioneers in modern vein treatments. If you want a surgery-free approach for eliminating all your varicose veins, call us today and inquire about our advanced UGFS protocol.
