June 19, 2020

spider and varicose vein treatment center

Top Vein doctor in NY answers questions about minimally invasive treatment plans.

Vein Treatment Clinic is home to some of the best vein doctors in New York and beyond. We have Harvard-trained vein doctors who specialize in the latest minimally invasive treatments. Over the years, we’ve come to realize that there are a lot of misconceptions about vein treatments and vein disease in general. If you have spider veins or varicose veins in your legs and hands, please contact our New York vein clinic.

Vein Treatment Clinic is one of the best vein treatment centers in New York. Located in Midtown Manhattan, our vein clinic is just a short hop away from iconic landmarks like the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Furthermore, our Manhattan vein clinic is also close to Grand Central Station, making it highly accessible to everyone in New York.

Having said that, we want to ensure that you have all the information you need about your vein problems. Our top vein doctor in NY will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about vein disease. The following is a summary of all the questions we answer in this article:

  1. Do I need to find a vein clinic if I have spider veins on my legs and hands?
  2. How do I know if I have vein disease?
  3. Do varicose vein treatment plans include surgery?
  4. What are the benefits of minimally invasive treatments?
  5. What are the best minimally invasive treatments?
  6. Is endovenous laser ablation dangerous?
  7. How can I find a state-of-the-art top vein clinic?
Do you have questions about vein disease or vein treatments? In this article, the top vein doctor in NY answers frequently asked questions about minimally invasive treatments.

Do I need to find a vein clinic if I have spider veins on my legs and hands?

Yes, you must consult a vein clinic or vein doctor if you have spider veins on your legs and hands. Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels on the surface of the skin, often visible just under the surface. However, you may also have varicose veins — large blood vessels protruding from the surface of the skin. Regardless of whether you have spider veins on your legs and hands or varicose veins on your thighs, you must consult a vein clinic.

Varicose veins and spider veins are often assumed to be cosmetic issues. However, varicose veins and spider veins are usually indicative of a circulatory disorder known as chronic venous insufficiency or vein disease. Venous insufficiency is a condition in which your vein valves collapse, leading to blood accumulation in your leg veins, which eventually leads to a host of vein problems, including leg ulcers, skin disease, and deep vein thrombosis.

How do I know if I have vein disease?

Vein disease is one of the most under-diagnosed diseases because its initial signs and symptoms are fairly benign. Most people don’t realize they have vein disease until they notice varicose veins or other dangerous complications.

However, you can identify potential vein disease through signs and symptoms like leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, restless leg syndrome, and swollen ankles and feet. If left untreated, vein disease spreads and eventually leads to dangerous complications like excessive bleeding, skin infections, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.

During the diagnostic process, the vein doctor should use Duplex Ultrasound to visualize the direction of blood flow in your leg veins. If you have vein disease and venous reflux, the vein doctor will identify it in your veins.

Do varicose vein treatment plans include surgery?

Modern varicose vein treatment plans should be minimally invasive and non-surgical. In fact, you should avoid vein doctors and vein treatment centers in New York recommending surgery. Varicose vein surgery is the historical treatment, and it has a high risk of complications, such as leg ulcers and deep vein thrombosis.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive treatments?

Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are far more effective than surgical treatments. Minimally invasive treatments also cause minimal pain and have a negligible risk of side effects. Furthermore, minimally invasive varicose vein treatments conclude within an hour with no downtime.

What are the best minimally invasive treatments?

Radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal are the best minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. During these procedures, the vein doctor uses thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to fuse the saphenous vein’s walls or collapse them all together, restoring smooth blood circulation to healthier veins.

Sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebotomy are the best minimally invasive treatments for superficial varicose veins and spider veins. After the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor may use these methods to remove the cosmetic or superficial veins visible on your skin. While these procedures aren’t necessary, they help restore your legs’ original beauty.

Is endovenous laser ablation dangerous?

Endovenous laser ablation has a 97% success rate and a negligible risk of side effects. You will, however, experience some post-procedural discomfort after the anesthesia wears off. Endovenous laser ablation is also eligible for insurance coverage.

How can I find a state-of-the-art top vein clinic?

When looking for a state-of-the-art top vein clinic, you must ensure the following:

  • They should have some of the best vein doctors who are board-certified and have an exceptional educational background.
  • The vein center should have state-of-the-art equipment, such as ClosureFAST, ClariVein, and VNUS.
  • The vein treatment center should only provide minimally invasive treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.
  • The vein clinic should help with insurance coverage.
