How Does a Varicose Veins Doctor Treat Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

Are you wondering how a varicose veins doctor in a vein center or vein clinic will treat varicose veins and spider veins?

First, you must schedule an appointment with a varicose vein doctor at a reputable vein treatment center. During your initial consultation with the vein doctor, they will examine your varicose veins and spider veins to look for other symptoms of vein disease, i.e., the possible underlying root cause of varicose veins and spider veins.

Next, a good vein treatment center will always conduct a diagnostic test to identify if your varicose veins and spider veins are caused by chronic venous insufficiency. They will run a Doppler Ultrasound test to visualize the blood flow in your veins, thus determining if you have underlying venous insufficiency.

Finally, depending on whether you have vein disease, the vein center will curate the ideal minimally invasive treatment plan for your needs. If you have vein disease, they will recommend minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. If you don’t have vein disease, the spider vein doctor will recommend spider vein treatment.

In this article, we discuss the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments at the best varicose vein treatment center or spider vein treatment center.

Best Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Treatments

Varicose veins are large veins that protrude out of the surface of the skin due to accumulated blood inside the blood vessel. The continued accumulation of blood in your leg veins due to chronic venous insufficiency applies increased pressure on the vein walls, leading to dilated veins and the formation of varicose veins.

If your varicose veins are caused by underlying venous insufficiency, it’s not enough to treat the superficial varicose veins and spider veins. The vein doctor must treat the underlying disease before focusing on the superficial varicose veins and spider veins.

That’s where minimally invasive varicose vein treatments come in.

The best varicose vein treatments include radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. During the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments, the best vein specialists use a variety of methods to destroy the diseased saphenous vein, thus restoring blood circulation to the heart.

Varicose and Spider Veins | Vein Diseases

The vein doctor will use methods like heat or thermal energy (radiofrequency ablation), laser energy (endovenous laser treatment), or a medical adhesive (VenaSeal), to collapse or fuse the diseased vein’s walls. Once the diseased saphenous vein is collapsed or shut down, the accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Meanwhile, the diseased vein will harden and get absorbed by the body.

Once the underlying venous insufficiency is dealt with, the vein doctor or vein specialist can treat the remaining varicose veins and spider veins using the procedures we’ll describe in the next section.

Best Minimally Invasive Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin but don’t bulge outwards. The presence of spider veins may indicate underlying vein disease, but not necessarily so.

Furthermore, you may also have some superficial varicose veins and spider veins on your skin after the underlying vein disease is treated. Once the diseased saphenous vein has been destroyed, you will still have the visible symptoms of vein disease on your skin.

In either of those cases, whether you have spider veins without underlying vein disease or spider veins left after the vein treatment, your spider vein clinic will recommend sclerotherapy procedure.

Sclerotherapy is the best minimally invasive spider vein treatment available. During the sclerotherapy procedure, the best vein specialists will inject a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins. This medicine will fuse the spider vein’s walls, thus turning them into hardened tissues. Over time, the spider veins will turn into scar tissues that will get absorbed by the body and fade away.

The appearance of spider veins will fade away over a few weeks, restoring the aesthetic beauty of your legs.

Qualities of the Best Vein Doctor

Now that you understand how a vein doctor treats varicose veins and spider veins, you may wonder where you can find the best vein specialists. The following are some of the primary factors to consider when looking for the best vein specialists from a good varicose vein clinic:

  • You must look for vein specialists who have a strong educational background, having graduated from reputable medical schools.
  • Find a vein dr who is also board-certified because it’s an objective guarantee of their skills and experience.
  • The American Board of Venous Medicine certifies and recognizes the best varicose vein specialists in the country who have made major contributions to the field of vein care. You must find a vein physician who has been recognized by the ABVLM.
  • The best vein specialist should operate from a reputable vein center near me or a spider vein treatment center. They should have access to a state-of-the-art vein clinic that has all the latest equipment necessary for varicose vein treatments.
  • The best varicose vein dr will only recommend the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser treatment, VenaSeal, and sclerotherapy. You must avoid a varicose vein treatment clinic that recommends surgical procedures like vein ligation.
  • Look for friendly and compassionate vein doctors.
  • Find a spider vein treatment clinic that accepts all major insurance plans.
