Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose veins and spider veins are the result of venous insufficiency, a circulation problem in which veins (primarily in the legs) and vein valves become damaged and fail to properly move blood through the body. This leads to veins beginning to bulge and change shape and color as they stretch to accommodate abnormal blood flow. When this occurs, the affected area may begin to ache or become painful, and the veins begin to show up on the skin, twisted and unsightly.

However, varicose veins are not an issue that you have to live with. We offer varicose veins treatment by using three different in-office procedures, depending on the situation of each individual patient. However, keep in mind that neglecting to get them treated may also result in the development of deeper and more problematic issues, like more serious diseases and blood clotting. Treatments include compression technology and surgically closing, removing or rerouting problematic veins so circulation can return to normal.

Vein Ablation

Most symptoms and visual signs of varicose veins and spider veins come from an underlying problem with the saphenous vein system that lies 1 to 2 inches below the surface of the skin.  The goal of vein ablation is to close veins with non-functioning valves and reroute blood flow through veins that are working properly. The procedure is office-based, and patients walk out shortly after. We use a local anesthetic to numb the skin. Then we gain access to the vein through an IV and use a special catheter that uses high-frequency radio waves to close the vein and reroute the blood to working veins.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is an in-office procedure performed on smaller surface veins. A chemical injection irritates the walls of the veins, causing them to thicken and close over time. Each sclerotherapy session builds upon the results of the previous session. Most patients undergo 2 to 3 sclerotherapy sessions spaced 1 month apart in order to obtain optimum results.

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy is the removal of existing varicose veins through micro-incisions. The incisions are tiny and leave little to no marks on the skin. No stitches are required in this procedure. This in-office procedure is the most direct way to get rid of varicose veins, removing the problem vein(s) from the body altogether through the incision and causing blood to begin rerouting through deeper veins.
