Varicose Vein Treatments

Varicose veins, which are the bulging, twisted veins just beneath the surface of the skin, can be effectively treated after the underlying vein reflux is corrected. There are two main options for removing the varicose veins; either a foamed medication can be injected into the veins causing them to scar and eventually dissolve (foam sclerotherapy), or they can be removed using tiny incisions (phlebectomy).  Sometimes, a combination of both treatment types may be recommended.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy works well for treating surface varicose veins and veins that are not visible to the naked eye. The foam medication can be seen on ultrasound, which allows us to administer it precisely and direct it towards nearby varicose veins. Foam sclerotherapy can be safely used for veins that travel close to the skin or nerves. It also travels easily through veins with many twists and turns.

Phlebectomy

Phlebectomy is surgical removal of bulging varicose veins though tiny skin incisions. This minimally invasive procedure is performed in the office with local anesthesia. Phlebectomy is also known as micro phlebectomy (because the incisions are tiny) or ambulatory phlebectomy.

WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR TREATING BULGING VARICOSE VEINS AT THE SKIN SURFACE?

There are two main techniques to treat varicose veins:
1.) Phlebectomy: surgical removal of the veins
2.) Foam sclerotherapy: injection of a medicated foam to close the veins

Sclerotherapy is the least invasive, but […]

This minimally invasive procedure can be performed in the office in less than an hour and patients return to their usual level of activity the same day.

HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?

The skin is numbed with lidocaine, then the ClariVein® catheter is placed into the unhealthy vein. The catheter closes the […]
