If you are suffering from varicose veins, a specialist vein doctor can help you choose the varicose vein treatment that will be most beneficial for you and for your situation. Today, treatment is available by much less invasive procedures than in previous years, and can generally be treated on an outpatient basis.
Varicose vein treatments typically fall into some main categories, and below are some common ones available to treat your varicose veins.
- Compression Stockings – The first approach to treating varicose veins is often compression stockings. These socks are designed to apply pressure to the legs in order to help move blood upward and are worn all day. They may help provide some relief from symptoms.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation – With the help of ultrasound-guided laser technology, endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), or endovenous laser treatment (ELT), is a minimally invasive, FDA-approved procedure which produces immediate results in most patients and requires little to no recuperation time.
- Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins – The vein specialist can treat symptoms in larger varicose veins and surrounding spider veins that are difficult to reach. This safe and effective treatment uses VARITHENA™, an FDA-approved sclerosant, to eliminate unsightly varicose veins with pinpoint accuracy.
- Vein Stripping – Varicose veins can also be physically removed by a surgeon through incisions. It is the least favored option due to the number of incisions usually required, and also because of the length of recovery time needed. This is usually reserved for very large, painful, bulging varicose veins.
When it’s time to seek treatment, our expert vascular specialists effectively treat varicose veins, spider veins, and other symptoms of venous disease using the latest endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins techniques.
