The vascular system is an extremely important part of the human anatomy. They are the blood vessels that transport blood back to the heart and into the lungs to replenish with the oxygen and nutrients we all need in order to function and stay healthy. Unfortunately, like all parts of our body, veins can develop problems. When it comes to the leg area of our body, people sometimes forget how it impacts their overall well-being, so it is very important to be educated on how important vascular health really is.
Americas Cosmetic Surgery Centers offer excellent treatments for vein diseases and vascular disorders from our dedicated experts in vein disease, all of whom rank among the preeminent authorities of vascular disorders.
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.
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.
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.
What are Spider Veins?
What are spider veins? Spider veins are red, blue, and purple looking veins that spread across your legs. They are dilated blood vessels, similar to varicose veins, but smaller and more noticeable because they lie closer to the skin. Although they are not serious, they can be unsightly.
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.
