This conservative treatment provides pressure around the legs. This method reduces the back flow of blood. Please note, this does not cure venous diseases, it only alleviates the symptoms. Wearing compression hose reduces symptoms such as aching and pain, reduces ulcer recurrence, and soothes deep vein thrombosis. Low impact and light exercise focused on the legs is beneficial in relieving symptoms of venous disease.
Thermal Ablation (radio frequency & laser)
Endovenous Thermal Ablation, involves heating on the vein until the affected veins diminish and can be easily removed.
- Done in the office
- Walk-in and walk-out
- May provide 95.9 % closure after 1 year
- Less than 1% of people experience complications
- Local Anesthesia
- It takes less than 60 minutes
Venaseal is a type of ablation that uses a chemical adhesive to seal the vein closed to eliminate the varicosities and discomfort. This minimally invasive technique combined with microstab phlebectomy of bulging varicose veins with or without sclerotherapy of spider veins provides durable relief and an improved cosmetic result while simultaneously healing venous ulcers and preventing ulceration from developing.
- Improved patient comfort
- Rapid return to normal activities
- No multiple needle sticks
- No need for post-procedure stockings
- May provide 96.8% closure after 1 year
A phlebectomy is the surgical removal of the diminished vein. It is typically used to remove varicose veins and leaves a very smooth skin surface.
- Done in the office
- It takes about 30 minutes
- incision in the skin is only 2-3mm
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a very fine, thin needle to inject a sterile sclerosing solutiondirectly into spider and varicose veins, causing them to shrink and disappear. It reduces or eliminates the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins in the legs, leading to smoother appearing legs and improved cosmetic appearance.
The number of sessions required may vary from patient to patient, depending upon their particular condition. Some patients are happy with results after just one treatment, others may desire further injections for the optimal effect. Because Sclerotherapy is performed with a very fine needle, there is very little pain associated with the procedure and anesthesia is not needed. Sessions take place in the physician office and last 15-30 minutes. You can return to work the same day.
