The Best Varicose Vein Treatment in San Diego

Vein Treatment Clinic firmly believes in providing comprehensive vein care solutions that address the root cause of your vein problems. Varicose veins and spider veins are usually symptomatic of underlying chronic venous insufficiency, a medical condition wherein the collapse of your vein valves makes blood accumulate in your leg veins.

However, most medical centers treat varicose veins and spider veins without addressing the root cause, increasing the likelihood of a recurrence. Our fellowship-trained vein doctors always diagnose and treat underlying venous insufficiency, ensuring optimal and lasting results. The following is a detailed overview of our varicose vein treatments in San Diego.

Step 1: Diagnosis

The vein doctor carefully examines your leg veins, reviews your medical history, and discusses your symptoms. They ask if you experience leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, leg pain, frequent leg cramps, and leg swelling, especially at the end of the day or after long periods of sitting or standing still. These are some of the earliest warning signs of vein disease.

The vein doctor also administers advanced vascular imaging tests, like Duplex Ultrasound, to visualize the direction of blood flow in your leg veins. The video is projected on a computer screen, allowing the vein doctor to conclusively diagnose venous insufficiency. The vascular imaging result helps the vein doctor curate a personalized vein treatment plan.

Step 2: Treatment

If you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency, the vein doctor recommends the following vein treatments — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. During these procedures, the vein doctors use thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to destroy or seal the diseased vein’s walls, rerouting the accumulated blood to healthier leg veins.

If you don’t have underlying vein disease, either from the beginning or after the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor recommends ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy. These procedures remove the superficial varicose veins or spider veins from your skin’s surface without addressing the deep veins. They provide cosmetic relief, restoring your legs’ beauty.

Step 3: Recovery

Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are in-office and outpatient procedures that conclude within 30 to 60 minutes with no downtime. You can resume all your daily activities and work immediately after the vein treatment. However, you must observe some recovery guidelines, such as wearing compression stockings, engaging in cardiovascular activities, and walking frequently. The vein doctor will provide an overview of the recovery guidelines to ensure a smooth recovery process.
