This condition occurs when the valves in the veins of the legs stop working properly. This can result in varicose veins in the affected leg, as well as skin color changes, ulcers, discomfort, and swelling. In some cases, surgery may be required to improve the blood flow in the affected leg. Common symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency include genetics, age, jobs that require sitting or standing for prolonged periods, obesity, trauma, and pregnancy.
Approximately 30% of adults will be affected by varicose veins during their lives, though only 10% of sufferers seek treatment. This condition typically occurs on a person's legs. While for most people varicose or spider veins are a cosmetic issue, others will experience pain and heaviness, itching and burning, cramping, fatigue, tingling, and bulging and unsightly veins. Varicose veins occur when veins become damaged or weakened, meaning blood can become backed up, causing veins to swell. There is a range of risk factors for varicose veins, including age, obesity, and having an occupation within limited mobility.
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, though they are smaller. They are red/purple/blue in color and, like varicose veins, are easily visible through the skin. They are commonly seen on the legs, face, and chest. Spider veins resemble spider webs, hence their name As well as being a common cosmetic issue for people, spider veins can also result in pain, aching, and itchiness. We provide a range of effective treatment options for spider veins, using the latest technology.
Our vascular medicine specialists use a range of different treatment options for venous conditions. Below is more information on sclerotherapy, endovenous laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation, and varithena. Our doctors work with our patients to determine the best-personalized treatment plan.
Another common and effective vein treatment, endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that treats both the symptoms and causes of varicose veins. It works by removing tissues in unhealthy valves that hinder blood flow. This helps to improve the blood circulation in the legs. It uses laser light to heat specific areas of the vein, forcing it to close and be reabsorbed into the body.
Radiofrequency ablation uses radio waves to treat both the symptoms and causes of varicose veins. This treatment utilizes ultrasound guidance, ensuring that the target area is targeted safely and accurately. This treatment is performed with local anesthesia, in-office, in less than one hour. Patients will experience only minor discomfort following this procedure. The result is that the targeted veins are closed and reabsorbed into the body.
This treatment works by using a medicated foam to treat the symptoms and causes of varicose veins. Similar to radiofrequency ablation, it is performed in-office under ultrasound guidance and with local anesthesia. A small amount of injectable foam affects the target veins, causing them to close and be reabsorbed by the body. While patients may feel some tenderness in the insertion area, normal activity can typically resume within 24 hours without pain.
Sclerotherapy treatment is regarded as the gold standard in vein treatment. In this minimally invasive treatment, we inject a highly concentrated sclerosing solution, which affects the lining of targeted blood vessels. This causes them to close down and be reabsorbed into the body. Blood supply is naturally rerouted through healthier veins.
Duplex ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy can also be utilized to treat larger veins. Sclerotherapy is effective and completely safe; minor side effects such as discomfort at the site of injection are short-lasting.
