Thanks to modern technology, treating various vein-related diseases and conditions has become easier than ever before. No need for general anesthesia and hospital stay after surgery, low risk of complications and little to no downtime – the new treatments allow you to go back to work on the same day, with relatively little pain or discomfort. Skilled specialists will treat your veins in their office with either a laser, a salt-solution called sclerosant, or a combination of the two:
The most common treatment to improve varicose or spider veins on your legs. This treatment is highly effective, with little to no pain, no invasive surgery, and is covered by insurance in many cases. Salt water or a chemical solution will be injected into the defective vein. The vein then hardens and disappears.
Highly effective, non-invasive treatment of superficial spider veins with immediate recovery, and a possible solution for spider veins on the face. Performed on an outpatient basis, the defected veins are removed by a laser technology with a cooling system which means that the tip of the laser never even gets hot.
Also known as Endovenous Ablation, this is a revolutionary treatment of varicose veins and venous insufficiency. Safe with minimum pain, it is typically covered by insurance. As an image-guided procedure, ELT uses targeted laser or radio frequency energy to seal a varicose vein shut, and thus eliminate it.
An advanced procedure which treats spider veins anywhere on your body. This procedure is safe and has little to no discomfort. With no downtime this is a great solution for facial redness. It can easily treat even the tiniest veins that cannot be treated by other techniques such as Sclerotherapy or Laser Therapy. Using thermocoagulation to heat and close vessels with an electrical device, this minimally invasive technique can eliminate spider veins in less than 20 minutes.
If you are experiencing any vein-related issues, it is best to find a vein specialist – phlebologist, dermatologist or vascular surgeon – who will perform a physical examination and recommend the most suitable course of treatment for your specific problem.
Remember that finding a medical expert is the alpha and omega of curing your venous disease and it will directly affect the final outcome.
