This Summer, Treat Yourself to Expert Varicose Vein Treatments

During summer, everyone wants to be able to go bare-legged. It’s easy to think back with nostalgia about a time in the past, when you could put on a pair of shorts, swimwear, or skirt without worrying about ugly, bulging varicose veins or unsightly, discolored spider veins.

Although varicose veins and spider veins are certainly unwanted cosmetically, they can also cause pain, tiredness in the legs and even skin ulceration. These veins are basically like leaky plumbing in the body’s circulatory system. They usually occur in the legs, but they can appear on the face, hands and other parts of the body.

Spider veins and varicose veins can often appear or worsen during the summer months due to the heat. Blood vessels are expanded and place more stress on vein valves resulting in the pooling of blood. Additionally, skin can be robbed of moisture and elasticity, weakening the skin’s upper layers and resulting in less flexibility and movement

Fortunately, there’s help available. For those who are experiencing varicose or spider veins and who would like a non-surgical option, there are two highly-effective treatments to consider.

  • Endovenous Laser Thermal 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 – 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.
