If you suffer from varicose veins or spider veins on your legs and ankles, there are many reasons to choose us for clear legs. Varicose veins are unattractive and uncomfortable. They can develop into serious conditions if they are not treated. We offer a variety of non-surgical treatments in our office. Depending on the size and type of vein, most varicose vein treatment options take less than an hour. You may need more than one treatment to have the veins removed completely.
Varicose veins develop when the blood does not flow properly up the legs and back to the heart and lungs. The tiny valves inside the veins become weak and allow the blood to pool in the veins. They gradually stretch, bulge, and become visible just underneath the skin.
Fortunately, we can remove them without surgery. Some of the treatments we offer at our office to remove varicose and/or spider veins include:
1. Sclerotherapy is a treatment in which a solution is injected directly into the affected vein. The vein wall then becomes damaged and collapses. The blood will naturally flow through other healthy veins and the collapsed vein will gradually disappear over time. Sclerotherapy is typically used to treat small to medium-sized spider veins.
2. The VeinGogh™ System targets spider veins in the legs and face. This system generates a tiny, high-frequency current via a hair-thin probe. An energetic burst of heat is supplied, coagulating the blood and forcing the vessel wall to collapse.
3. Venefit™ is a special, minimally-invasive varicose vein treatment that we offer at our office. Venefit™ is a revolutionary varicose vein treatment that offers fast improvement and minimal recovery time. To learn more, you may talk to our vein specialist.
Varicose veins may not be a serious health condition, but if they are not treated, they can develop into a serious condition that can affect your overall health. At The Vein Center, we are happy to help. Contact us today to book a consultation at our office in Mount Pleasant!
