If your varicose veins have been bothering you for a while now, a vein treatment may help!
Treating Varicose Veins at Premier Vein Clinic
The Premier Vein Clinic in Knoxville has an entire team of vascular surgeons who are experts in diagnosing and treating vascular and vein diseases.
Here are some of the treatment options we offer:
Normally recommended for spider veins and early stages of varicose veins, sclerotherapy involves the administration of a vein-irritating solution.
The solution causes the diseased vein to collapse, stick together, and eventually turns into a scar tissue that fades from view in the long run.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is an in-office procedure that removes the diseased vein through small, slit-like incisions made next to it. After the procedure, steri-strips are applied to the incision site and a bandage is applied on the treated leg.
Endovenous laser therapy
Endovenous laser therapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any hospitalization. In this procedure, a small optic fiber is inserted through a needle into the diseased vein.
Guided by ultrasound, the laser fiber creates enough heat to shut down the vein and seal it.
Radiofrequency ablation endovenous therapy
Like the endovenous laser therapy, radiofrequency ablation endovenous therapy is an outpatient procedure.
It is guided by ultrasound and uses radiofrequency energy to seal shut the diseased vein. Blood flow is then re-routed to healthier veins.
Benefits of Treating Your Varicose Veins
If you’re fed up covering your legs because of your varicose veins, then you’ll definitely benefit from varicose veins treatments.
Aside from improving your veins’ appearance, seeking treatment for your bulging veins can also improve some of the symptoms such as pain and heavy sensation on the legs.
