An ultrasound machine is an amazing bit of technology that enables one to see veins that are hidden under the surface of the skin. Often, these hidden veins are the “culprits” that are causing problems further down the leg. The valves in these veins may be damaged, allowing blood to flow backwards into the calves. Eventually this will result in bulging of the calf veins, and uncomfortable and unattractive varicose veins.
With the aid of the ultrasound machine, the injections can be guided quickly and accurately to find the veins that need to be injected.
