New Year, New Legs: Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins

by | Jan 9, 2024 | Spider Veins, Varicose Veins

As we ring in the New Year, it’s a time for new beginnings and setting goals for improving our health and well-being. For many, this includes addressing the discomfort and appearance of varicose and spider veins. At Premier Vascular & Vein Center in Knoxville, TN, we’re committed to helping you start 2024 with confidence and comfort, free from the pains and unsightliness of varicose veins.

Varicose Veins vs. Spider Veins
Varicose veins, those twisted, bulging veins that can appear on your legs, are not just a cosmetic concern. They can cause discomfort, swelling, and even lead to more serious health issues. But the good news is, with modern treatments, living with varicose veins is no longer something you have to endure.

Modern Treatments for Varicose Veins

At Premier Vascular & Vein Center, we perform a variety of in-office treatments to  effectively eliminate varicose and spider veins. Most, unless noted, are covered by health insurance. Here’s a look at some of the options we offer:

  1. Ambulatory Phlebectomy:

This popular outpatient procedure involves making tiny incisions through which the varicose veins are removed. It’s an effective option for larger, more pronounced veins and offers quick recovery times.

  1. Radiofrequency Ablation Endovenous Therapy:

For larger varicose veins, radiofrequency ablation therapy is a minimally invasive option. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and close off the affected veins, rerouting blood flow to healthier veins.

  1. VenaSeal Closure System uses a medical grade “super glue” to close and seal the main defective saphenous vein in the leg without heat. Blood flow is rerouted to other, healthier veins. 
  1. Varithena is an FDA-approved injectable foam that is injected into a diseased vein. The vein is closed off and blood is rerouted to healthier veins. 
  1. Sclerotherapy:

This time-tested treatment involves injecting a solution directly into the vein, causing it to collapse and fade over time. Sclerotherapy is often effective for treating varicose veins. This treatment is considered cosmetic and is not normally covered by insurance.

  1. Vasculaze: Vasculaze is an innovative laser treatment designed to target vascular lesions like varicose veins. The precision of this technology means treatments are quick, with minimal discomfort and downtime. It’s ideal for those seeking a non-invasive solution.
