Where can I find a top vein treatment clinic near me?

Finding the best vein treatment center near me: A vascular surgeon’s recommendation.
One in two people have some form of abnormal looking veins – either spider veins, which are those fine, purplish lines that lie beneath your skin, or varicose veins, which are larger, twisted and tend to bulge. If you have either of these, you probably want to get rid of them – who doesn’t want summer ready, blemish free legs? But where can you get them treated? Read on…
Why you need to choose the best vein clinic for varicose veins
Although you may think of them as mere blemishes, spider and varicose veins can reflect serious underlying vein disease – called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). This is a condition where the valves in your leg veins stop functioning efficiently. These valves help blood flow back from the legs to the heart. If the valves fail, blood tends to pool in the legs, and this is what shows up externally in the form of varicose veins and spider veins. Over time, CVI can cause painful symptoms, such as aching, heavy feet, swollen ankles, throbbing pain, and general fatigue. You may not associate these symptoms with your vein condition, and they can worsen over time and deteriorate your quality of life.
Getting spider and varicose veins treated, therefore, is not just about fixing the appearance – you need to be evaluated for CVI, and treated if needed. This can only be accomplished by going to a vein center that has experience in diagnosis and management of vein disease.

VTC offers more than your average laser vein removal centers
Laser vein removal seems to be the ‘in’ thing, but it’s not necessarily the best or more advanced procedure. As one of the leading vein clinics of America, at VTC, we believe in using even more modern, cutting edge techniques. Some of the advanced techniques that we employ for varicose and spider vein removal include:
- VenaSeal:This is the most minimally invasive technique available. This involves only a single injection, through which medicated glue is delivered into the vein. The glue causes the vein walls to stick together, and stops blood from flowing through the vein. Over time, the non-functional vein is absorbed by the body.
- Radiofrequency ablation: This is similar to laser ablation, but a lot more comfortable. The skin over the defective vein is numbed, and a small incision is made to reach the vein. A small radiofrequency catheter is then inserted into the vein. Heat delivered through the catheter destroys the vein.
- Sclerotherapy: A medicated solution, called sclerosant, is injected into the veins. The sclerosant irritates the vein walls and makes them stick together, cutting off blow flow in the vein. This acts on a limited area, so can only be used for smaller veins, like spider veins.
- Varithena: This can be employed in medium sized veins. Instead of liquid sclerosant, medicated foam is injected. Foam tends to disperse over a slightly larger area.
- Clarivein: An advanced technique that allows sclerosant to be used in larger veins. The sclerosant is delivered through a tiny catheter, implanted in your vein. The catheter rotates and disperses the solution throughout the vein.
The importance of fixing your vein problems in the fastest and most effective way possible
Even if your varicose or spider veins don’t bother you much, you should get them treated. As mentioned earlier, it is not just about the looks – treatment can improve your quality of life.
Left untreated, the symptoms of vein disease will worsen over time. You can develop ‘restless legs syndrome’, which is a condition where you will need to move your legs to shake off pain. Because vein disease causes pooling of impure blood in the legs, the flow of healthy blood to the legs is compromised. This reduces the body’s ability to repair wounds. This means that, even if you get a minor scrape or an abrasion, it may take ages to heal, and the unhealed wound can sometimes turn into a long-standing venous ulcer. A direct injury to the varicose vein itself can cause profuse bleeding that is difficult to control. Another serious complication of vein disease is stagnation of blood in the leg veins, which can cause it to clot. If these blood clots travel through circulation to reach the heart and lungs, there can be potentially fatal consequences.
