Vein Treatment / Treatments

Compression Therapy for Varicose Veins

Graduated compression prevents blood from pooling in the leg veins, thereby helping overall circulation. Compression is greatest at the ankle, gradually decreasing up the leg which promotes the normal flow return of venous blood toward the heart.  Though many find them difficult to tolerate in the summer months and sometimes a challenge to apply, they can be quite helpful in relieving symptoms of leg vein disease.  Multiple styles/colors are available.

Veingogh

MICROBURST TECHNOLOGY

Only VeinGogh incorporates Microburst Technology, a powerful and revolutionary frequency regulator that achieves fixed amplitude, allowing controllable power for heating of vessels. Microburst Technology allows the VeinGogh to deliver peak wave modulation-fixing each pulse at an exact, unfluctuating amplitude for greater control. The precise peaks help deliver consistent power.

Microburst Technology allows the VeinGogh to deliver peak wave modulation-fixing each pulse at an exact, unfluctuating amplitude for greater control. The resulting pulse train also encompasses sharp, precise peaks to minimize the risk of damage and deliver consistent results.

VeinGogh is the easy way to reliably treat cosmetically unacceptable conditions of telangiectasia and spider veins. Unlike IPL and most Lasers, VeinGogh can safely treat any skin type, including tanned skin. Compact, portable VeinGogh instantly eliminates vessels dependably and repeatably. Veingogh delivers results using unique, proprietary Microburst Technology.

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy is a safe and effective treatment for the removal of small to medium varicose veins which are swollen, twisted veins visible at the surface of the skin.  Microphlebectomy is performed following tumescent local anesthesia via a series of small needle punctures followed be gently pulling out the segments of the varicose veins under the skin with a tiny hook (often compared to a crochet hook).

Microphlebectomy can be used in conjunction with our other common vein removal procedures such as EVLT (endovenous laser therapy) and sclerotherapy and to address different sized vein problems and yield the best cosmetic results.

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)

Endovenous Laser Treatment is another very effective outpatient treatments for varicose veins. Using ultrasound technology, a thin laser fiber is guided into the vein through a very small opening to deliver pulsed laser heat to the diseased vein wall. This causes the vein to close, and eliminates venous reflux at its source.  Procedural benefits include:

  • Relief of symptoms
  • Less invasive; not a surgical procedure
  • Little downtime
  • Same day, outpatient procedure
  • Only local or regional anesthesia needed
  • Little to no scarring

 

Varithena microfoam ablation- How Varithena® works

  • The doctor administers a small amount of Varithena® through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning varicose vein
  • The Varithena® microfoam fills and treats the desired section of the vein
  • The diseased vein collapses and the microfoam is deactivated
  • When the malfunctioning vein collapses, blood flow shifts to healthier veins nearby
  • Advantages include no anesthetic required as it is a nonthermal therapy with minimal to no discomfort
  • Ideal for tortuous (twisted) veins that laser catheters cannot access as well as to promote healing of venous stasis ulcers
  • Covered by most insurance providers

Sclerotherapy (with optional ultrasound guidance)

This procedure is most often used to treat visible spider veins and small varicose veins near the surface of the skin. A sclerosant medication is injected into the veins, causing them to shrink, close off and eventually disappear. Although two or three treatments are often needed, the results are long-lasting.  Ultrasound guidance (Ultrasound guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS)) is used as indicated for injection of larger feeder veins known as reticular veins. 

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

During RFA, a thin catheter is guided using ultrasound into the great saphenous vein through a tiny opening. The catheter then delivers radiofrequency energy directly to the wall of the damaged vein. As the catheter is removed, the damaged vein is heated and seals shut. Unlike vein stripping, this outpatient treatment is quick and virtually pain-free. Most patients return to normal activity within a few days.  Blood flow is naturally redirected to healthy veins. Over time, the body absorbs the treated vein. This modality’s results are similar to EVLT mentioned above.
