Varicose veins, as well as their smaller version, spider veins, develop when there’s damage to a vein. As vein walls weaken, blood pools in the vein and causes the bulging and unsightly discoloration you experience.
Though varicose and spider veins can occur anywhere, in most cases, they develop in your lower legs. Your chances of having problem veins increases due to:
No matter what’s causing your varicose or spider veins though, you can get them treated without surgery.
At Elite Vein & Hair Restoration, you have access to a team of vein specialists who spend time evaluating your veins and educating you about your different treatment options. Common vein treatments are described below.
An ambulatory microphlebectomy vein treatment involves making very tiny incisions near your bulging veins. Your practitioner can remove problem veins on the spot, which forces blood to recirculate to healthier veins nearby.
Conservative therapy involves wearing compression stockings for a period of 6-12 weeks. These stockings minimize blood pooling and promote blood circulation. Your provider at Elite Vein & Hair Restoration has you check in regularly to see if your veins are fading and if needed, talks with you about further treatment.
Radiofrequency ablation is a vein treatment that involves using an ultrasound to guide a fiber or electrode into a targeted vein. This device sends out radiofrequency energy, which destroys the vein around it, forcing the vein to collapse. The treated vein then turns into scar tissue over time and is eventually absorbed.
Sclerotherapy is one of the oldest and most effective vein treatments. Your provider injects a sodium-based solution into unwanted veins, which causes irritation of the vein wall.
The treated vein collapses and turns into scar tissue, which forces blood to recirculate into other veins. Elite Vein & Hair Restoration proudly offers ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy treatments for maximum efficacy.
Varithena is an FDA-approved vein treatment that involves injecting a specialized microfoam into your problem veins. As veins fill up, they collapse and fade, which forces blood to be transmitted to healthier veins.
VenaSeal also closes up your veins and allows blood to circulate to healthier veins. But it works by using a medical glue to close off the main vein that’s leading to the excessive blood pooling and causing varicose veins. After the vein is closed, it hardens and is gradually absorbed over time.
Elite Vein & Hair Restoration can also help you if you have deep vein thrombosis, which is a blood clot that most commonly forms in a vein in your lower leg, thigh, or pelvis. Though conservative treatments, like compression stockings, are often helpful, your provider may also recommend blood thinner medications or an inferior vena cava filter procedure to catch the clot.
No matter which type of vein treatment is right for you, the team at Elite Vein & Hair Restoration ensures you’re entirely comfortable throughout your visit. Your provider can apply a topical numbing cream or inject a numbing solution, so you shouldn’t be able to feel any pain or discomfort during your vein treatment.
