How are Varicose Veins Treated?
At USA Vein Clinics, we treat the source of varicose veins to resolve health symptoms and reduce their appearance. Treating the root cause of your varicose veins is important to reduce the occurrence of these bulging, twisted veins. Depending on your unique situation, our vein specialists will determine what varicose vein treatment is right for you.
EVLT has been used for over a decade and is considered the Gold Standard for treating venous insufficiency. The treatment involves your doctor inserting a very thin laser fiber into the diseased veins using a real-time ultrasound for guidance. Your doctor will then use laser energy to heat and close the malfunctioning veins. The surrounding healthy veins will take over the normal blood flow immediately and the treated vein will eventually be absorbed by your body. EVLT usually takes around 15 minutes from the start to finish and you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately after your treatment.
Our Varithena treatment is a foam treatment used to treat vein conditions associated with the great saphenous vein (GSV) and the surrounding veins. This treatment also uses an ultrasound to guide a small needle or catheter into the vein and allows the Varithena foam treatment to be injected into the vein. The Varithena foam will cause the vein to collapse and the blood flow to be directed to your other healthy veins.
Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy utilizes live ultrasound technology to treat varicose veins near the skin’s surface. Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive technique designed to close malfunctioning varicose veins so they can be naturally reabsorbed into the body. During this treatment, an ultrasound is used to locate the diseased vein and injection site. Then, medication is injected into the vein. Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy offers patients relief from their symptoms almost immediately and requires no downtown.
