We use the Newest non-surgical Technologies to treat Spider and Varicose Veins

Spider veins are named for the web-like appearance on the skin, they’re usually red or blue.

They can develop anywhere, but are most common on the legs, ankles, and face. Several treatments may be needed to diminish spider veins. The more recent the condition, the easier it is to treat. An ultrasound test can determine if spider veins are a symptom of a deeper circulatory problem.

Varicose veins appear as gnarled, enlarged veins in the legs and feet. It’s a very common condition affecting more than 3 million people per year in the US.

For many people, varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic concern. They cause aching pain, swelling, and discomfort which may signal an underlying vascular problem due to incompetent valves. Treatment involves compression stockings, exercise, or procedures to close (collapse) the affected veins.

Burning or throbbing
Swollen feet and legs
Pain, aching, or cramping
Bulging or visible veins
Numbness or itching
Skin discoloration
Skin ulcers
Restless legs

We will need to know some history including how long you have had your current symptoms. Also, did you first notice your symptoms during pregnancy? We will need to know what improves your symptoms. This may include compression stockings, leg elevation, a low
sodium diet, weight loss, or exercise.

Let us know if you have personal or family history of blood clots, migraines, if you take, or have taken, birth control pills, or if you are using hormone replacement therapy.

We will perform an ultrasound screening. It’s an in-office test to determine the cause of your symptoms and the severity of your condition.

COMPRESSION THERAPY

SCLEROTHERAPY
(Cosmetic for spider veins)

RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION THERAPY (ERFA)
(For closure of varicose veins)

ENDOVENOUS LASER THERAPY (EVLT)
(For closure of varicose veins)

VENASEAL® MEDICAL GLUE
(The latest technology for closure of varicose veins that does not require pain medication or compression stockings.)

Compression stockings are essential to a successful recovery and prevent adverse side effects after surgery. You must wear compression stockings for the first 24 hours after the procedure. After that time, you should continue to wear them for the next 14 days at all times, except when sleeping.

There is bruising and mild discomfort in the treated areas for two to four weeks. Within one week you may start to notice a difference in the prominence of your veins, but complete results may take weeks to months.

Example of sclerotherapy for spider veins.
