After months of bundling up, you may be looking forward to longer days of warmth and wearing your shorts and skirts again.
If the look of your varicose veins is keeping you from doing that, we have good news for you: they can be treated!
Varicose Vein Treatment at Premier Vein Clinic
Premier Vein Clinic of Knoxville offers several treatment options for getting rid of varicose veins. This includes:
Sclerotherapy is usually recommended for spider veins and milder cases of varicose veins. In this procedure, a solution (called a sclerant), is injected into the affected vein.
The solution is a vein irritant, causing the blood vessel to collapse, stick together, and eventually turns into a scar tissue (fades from view in the long run).
- Ambulatory phlebectomy
An outpatient procedure, ambulatory phlebectomy removes varicose veins through small, slit-like incisions on the skin.
- Endovenous laser therapy
Endovenous laser therapy is another minimally-invasive procedure for getting rid of varicose veins.
The procedure involves making a small, slit-like incision on the skin to where a catheter will be inserted. A laser fiber will be placed inside the catheter.
As the vein specialist pulls out the laser fiber from the catheter, it will heat up the length of the vein, causing it to close and eventually shrink.
- Radiofrequency ablation endovenous therapy
In this procedure, the vein specialist inserts a catheter into the affected vein through a small incision on the skin.
It uses ultrasound to live and accurate view and guidance. Uniform and consistent heat are delivered on the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and close. The treated vein is eventually absorbed by its surrounding tissues.
Blood flow is diverted into healthy veins and circulation improves.
