Varicose Vein Treatments:
Today, there are multiple treatment options for vаrісоѕе veins. The right solution for you is best determined by our vein specialists in California who assess your individual condition. Features including the size, symptoms, and skin issues (ulcers, itching, discoloration) impact the doctor’s decision regarding treatment.
Potential Treatments Include:
- Sclerotherapy: injecting a sclerosant liquid or foam to close the vein
- Ablаtіоn: applying laser or thermal energy like radiofrequency to eliminate diseased veins.
- Elevation of legs over the heart while at rest
- Support ѕtосkіngѕ for compression
- Surgеrу: phlebectomy (surgically stripping the veins from the body)
NOTE: Most qualified vein doctors choose sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation over other methods for spider veins.
Is Varicose Vein Treatment Safe?
Varicose vein treatment is safe when administered by a qualified physician. The latest minimally invasive treatments offer fast and convenient resolution of varicose veins with low risk to the majority of patients. However, choosing a highly trained doctor is important to avoid complications like pain or embolism that unaccredited vein centers might cause. The doctors at California Vein Center have the highest training and conduct a thorough analysis of your veins for the safest results.
How Do Doctors Diagnose Venous Insufficiency and Varicose Veins?
A proper diagnosis begins with physical examination of your veins and an analysis of your symptoms and medical history. A qualified vein specialist will also inquire about your goals for treatment, listening to your preferences and concerns. Trained vein experts will implement tools like duplex ultrasound scans to identify blood clots, damaged valves, and problematic blood vessel connections if needed to detect venous insufficiency. The doctors at California Vein Center always provide a clear and conclusive diagnosis.
