Varicose veins are not an issue that should be ignored. So we have decided to outlined our top 4 non-invasive treatments we use to get rid of your varicose veins!

1. Vascular Ultrasound Diagnostics

A vascular ultrasound is a safe and painless method for us to view your body’s veins and arteries and provides us with detailed pictures of blood vessels and information about the blood flowing through them. We are able to see the size of your veins as well as abnormalities if present. Our vein patients begin their assessment and treatment process with a complimentary vein evaluation. After being examined by a physician and Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT), our patients receive a brief ultrasound. This initial scan begins the diagnostic process by locating the origins of the venous disorder.

2. Endovenous Laser Treatment

EVLT or Endovenous Laser Treatment is one of best treatment options available for large varicose veins and is quickly becoming the standard treatment. This procedure is also called Endovenous Laser Ablation or EVLA. Though it is often used for cosmetic purposes, it is more commonly used to help ease or eliminate symptoms including aching, leg swelling, skin irritation, discoloration or inflammation.

3. Micro Phlebectomy Treatment for Varicose Veins

Micro phlebectomy, also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that removes damaged veins from the surface of the legs through microscopic incisions. This procedure is used to treat varicose veins that are much larger than those treated with sclerotherapy.

4. Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is not just a procedure performed at a cosmetic surgery center. Sclerotherapy is a very crucial tool in treating varicose vein disease. Sclerotherapy is a treatment that works best for average sized varicose veins as well as for spider veins conditions. The treatment is performed under Ultrasound Guidance so as to ensure the most precise placement of the treatment.

Some areas may need more sclerotherapy sessions than others, as the success and rate of the treatment dependent on individual. We will be able to tell during our physical exam; however, there should not be any issue that cannot be resolved in our offices.

As you can see there are many different treatments that can help get rid of your varicose veins. All of these procedures are painless, do not require surgery and are minimally invasive.
