About Varicose Veins
Though not always visible, varicose veins typically are enlarged veins raised above the surface of the skin. Most often noticeable when standing, they may appear blue or purple and have a bulging, rope-like appearance. Varicose veins may cause pain, tiredness, tingling, restlessness or heaviness in the legs. Risk factors for varicose veins include age, pregnancy, gender, family history, obesity and standing for long periods of time.
Varicose Vein Treatments
There are surgical and non-surgical treatment options for varicose veins. One surgical option is Radiofrequency ablation, an outpatient procedure that involves inserting a small catheter into the diseased vein. The catheter delivers heat to the vein wall, causing it to seal closed. Once this vein is ablated, blood flow is automatically rerouted through healthier adjacent veins. The procedure is safe and effective, involving less pain and shorter recovery time than other vein treatments. Another procedure option, ambulatory phlebectomy, is an outpatient procedure that is used to remove varicose veins from the legs through a series of small incisions that are so small that they don’t require stitches.
Spider Vein Treatment
Treatment of the spider veins is another service offered at the Vein Care Center. Spider veins look like a web of red or blue veins that often start to spread across your legs. We offer a cosmetic procedure done through a technique called Sclerotherapy. It involves injecting a small amount of medication directly into the spider veins. The medication irritates the vein causing it to go into spasm and seal itself off. Eventually the sealed off vein is gradually absorbed by the body.
