Modern advancements in medical treatment have made the goal of restoring proper venous blood flow by eliminating varicose and spider veins from venous circulation even safer and more effective. Treatment methods vary from collapsing the veins from the inside with laser energy or physically removing the vein, to different methods of sclerotherapy. All treatment methods can be performed separately or in conjunction to offer the best results. Which medical treatment is best-suited for you will depend on a number of things:
- Type (spider vein or varicose vein)
- Size & Pressure (how big are they in diameter)
- Source Location of veins involved (for legs it can be thigh, ankle or behind the knee. Veins even appear on the hands, face, breasts, back, and genital areas)
- Severity or concentration of veins
- Skin texture & Color
All of the above is determined by various non-invasive diagnostic tests that are performed in our office. Through physical examination and diagnostic testing we choose of one or more treatment methods to achieve the desired cosmetic results.
Methods of treatment for varicose veins and spider veins include all forms of sclerotherapy, cyro sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, laser-assisted sclerotherapy, duplex-guided sclerotherapy, TIGOS, Endovenous Laser Ablation (Endolaser, EVLT), Mini-Phlebectomy and Ambulatory Surgery.
