Varicose and spider veins can be an embarrassing and often painful condition impacting millions of men and women. The most common causes are heredity, pregnancy, and hormones. If you suffer from varicose and/or spider veins we can help you fall back in love with your legs! At Premier Vein Clinics we offer a variety of treatments for venous disease. After a thorough diagnostic evaluation, you and your board certified vascular surgeon will decide on a treatment plan based upon the severity of your condition and your desired outcomes. Read on to learn more about two procedures frequently performed at Premier Vein Clinics.
Sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is performed in office and is a minimally invasive procedure to treat spider veins. During the treatment, veins are injected with a solution causing them to swell, collapse and eventually fade away as it is absorbed back into the body. Sclerotherapy is relatively painless and has very few side effects. Most patients are able to resume regular activities immediately following treatment. The number of treatments required varies based on each individual case and the severity of the spider veins. It is effective in eliminating most visible spider veins. Sclerotherapy is not covered by most insurance plans but is an affordable treatment option for many people.
Endovenous Laser Therapy. Endovenous Laser Therapy, often referred to as EVLT, is non-invasive approach to treat larger varicose veins. During this procedure, ultrasound technology is used to guide a tiny optic fiber laser through a small puncture in the leg to the diseased vein. Laser energy is then delivered through the guide to heat and close the diseased vein. Blood is then naturally re-routed to healthy veins. EVLT is often done in conjunction with sclerotherapy for optimal aesthetic results. This treatment is performed in office under local anesthetic. Patients are normally able to resume regular activity within a day and most insurance plans as well as Medicare will cover EVLT.
