Although self-confidence may come from within, untreated varicose veins can be a challenge to the self-esteem of those who suffer with them. These bulging, blue or purple gnarled-looking veins make many people self-conscious, preferring to keep their legs covered even during the hot summer months, rather than wearing shorts, skirts, or a dress.
In fact, those who have varicose veins often limit activities that they would normally enjoy, refusing invitations to social events or activities that would require wearing swimwear or other clothing that necessitate exposing their legs.
However, there’s no need to avoid feeling and looking your best due to unsightly varicose veins. Modern varicose veins treatment is available with a specialist vein doctor through two highly-effective, non-surgical options.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation– After a local anesthesia is administered, a varicose vein specialist introduces a small catheter into the vein with ultrasound guidance. This is followed by a small laser fiber, which delivers gentle laser energy, causing the vein to close. The procedure takes only about 10 minutes to do and requires no hospitalization or surgery center.
- Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins – During this procedure, a varicose vein specialist uses a tiny needle to introduce an FDA-approved sclerosant into the vein, drops at a time. This gentle, yet effective medication causes the vein to collapse and close. Over time, the closed vein gets absorbed by the body and disappears. The sessions are typically completed in the office, within 20 minutes per leg.
Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
