Overview of Varicose Vein Treatment in San Diego

Varicose veins are large blood vessels that protrude out of the surface of the skin and look like giant tree trunks or a thick mass of knotted ropes. Varicose veins are essentially dilated blood vessels caused by an underlying condition called chronic venous insufficiency.

If you have varicose veins, you must consult a vein doctor for varicose vein treatment in San Diego immediately. You must also find the best La Jolla vein care center — one that accurately diagnoses the root cause of your varicose veins and provides the best minimally invasive procedures.

The following is a brief overview of the steps involved in the varicose vein treatment in San Diego:

  • Step 1: The vein specialist in San Diego diagnoses underlying vein disease using Duplex Ultrasound.
  • Step 2: The vein treatment clinic discusses all of your varicose vein treatment options, including the pros and cons of various minimally invasive procedures.
  • Step 3: The state-of-the-art vein center in San Diego performs the varicose vein treatment.
  • Step 4: The varicose vein specialist discusses aftercare.

In this article, we take you through a detailed overview of every step involved in the best varicose vein treatment in San Diego.

 

Varicose and Spider Veins | Vein Diseases

Step 1: Vein Specialist Diagnoses Vein Disease Using Duplex Ultrasound

When you consult your vein specialist, they will study all of your symptoms to determine if you have vein disease. During your initial consultation, the vein doctor will look for signs and symptoms of vein disease, such as the depth of your spider veins and varicose veins, bruising, and other such signs and symptoms.

Following that, the vein doctor will ask you if you have experienced any other symptoms of vein disease, such as restless legs syndrome, leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, and throbbing veins. Chronic venous insufficiency is one of the most under-diagnosed medical conditions because its initial signs and symptoms can be mistaken for signs of aging. However, if these signs and symptoms get worse at the end of the day, or after long periods of sitting or standing, you may have vein disease.

Finally, the vein doctor will run a vascular imaging test called Duplex Ultrasound. This is a method that allows the vein specialist to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. If you have chronic venous insufficiency, your blood will flow backward and pool in your leg veins. As such, the vein doctor will identify that through Duplex Ultrasound.

Step 2: Vein Treatment Clinic Discusses Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Once the vein specialist has diagnosed the root cause of your varicose veins, they will discuss all of your varicose vein treatment options. If you have vein disease, their primary goal will be to remove the diseased saphenous vein. The best varicose vein treatments are radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.

After treating the diseased saphenous vein, the vein specialist can treat the superficial and visible varicose veins and spider veins on your skin. The vein best minimally invasive procedures for superficial varicose veins and spider veins are sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy.

Step 3: Vein Clinic Conducts Varicose Vein Treatment

As mentioned above, the vein center in San Diego will first use minimally invasive procedures to remove or destroy the diseased saphenous vein. All of the minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have the same goal, i.e., destroy the diseased saphenous vein to restore smooth blood circulation to the heart.

During radiofrequency ablation, the vein doctor will use thermal energy to collapse the diseased saphenous vein. During endovenous laser ablation, the specialist will use laser energy to destroy the affected saphenous vein, channeled through an endovenous laser. During VenaSeal, the vein physician will inject a medical adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein to fuse its vein walls, essentially shutting it down to restore smooth blood circulation to the heart.

After the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor will treat the surface varicose veins and spider veins. Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein doctor will create incisions on the surface of your skin to physically remove the superficial varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein dr will inject a solution called sclerosant into the spider veins to fuse their vein walls, turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body.

Step 4: La Jolla Vein Care Center Discusses AfterCare

The greatest advantage of minimally invasive varicose vein treatments is that you don’t have to spend any time in the hospital. All of the aforementioned minimally invasive procedures are in-office and outpatient procedures, i.e., they don’t require hospitalization. Furthermore, minimally invasive procedures conclude within an hour with no downtime. As such, most people seek varicose vein treatments during their work lunch break.

While you can resume most of your daily activities after the varicose vein treatment, you still have to be careful. Before your discharge, the vein doctor will discuss your vein treatment aftercare. The vein doctor will ask you to wear compression stockings for a few days or weeks to apply pressure on your vein walls and facilitate blood circulation. The vein doctor will also ask you to avoid heavy lifting or other strenuous activities, though you will be encouraged to walk frequently.
