Vein Doctor Discusses Treatment for Varicose Veins in San Diego

If you have varicose veins in San Diego, you must consult a state-of-the-art varicose vein treatment center immediately. Varicose veins are large blood vessels that protrude out of the surface of the skin and look like a dense mass of knotted and twisted ropes. Varicose veins are caused by venous insufficiency, a condition in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins. Over time, the presence of varicose veins can lead to profuse bleeding, skin disease, skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.

As such, you must consult a state-of-the-art vein clinic to treat varicose veins in San Diego. However, people have several dangerous misconceptions about varicose vein treatment options. Our patients often think the only way to treat varicose veins in San Diego is through complicated surgical procedures. However, that is simply not true. We only provide the latest minimally-invasive and non-surgical varicose vein treatment options.

In the past, varicose veins could only be treated using surgical procedures, like vein ligation, vein stripping, and venous bypass surgery. However, surgical procedures had a high risk of complications, like deep vein thrombosis and infections. Furthermore, surgical procedures necessitated hospitalization and an extended recovery period. Compared to that, modern minimally invasive varicose vein treatment options are non-surgical, painless, and safe. They conclude within an hour with no hospitalization or downtime.

As such, our state-of-the-art vein treatment center in San Diego only provides minimally invasive varicose vein treatment options. We treat varicose veins in San Diego using varicose vein treatment options like radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. After the varicose vein treatment, we treat the superficial varicose veins and spider veins using ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy.

In this article, our board-certified vein doctors describe all the minimally invasive varicose vein treatment options in San Diego.

You must find a varicose vein treatment center that will treat varicose veins in San Diego with a minimally invasive procedure. In this article, we discuss varicose vein treatment options.

Radiofrequency Ablation Varicose Vein Treatment

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein doctor uses thermal energy to treat varicose veins in San Diego. During the radiofrequency ablation varicose vein treatment, the vein doctor creates an incision on the surface of the skin to insert a catheter. The catheter enters through the incision and lodges in the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is in place, the vein specialist applies tumescent anesthesia and generates thermal energy to destroy the diseased vein. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation.

Endovenous Laser Ablation Varicose Vein Treatment

Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment in which the vein dr uses laser energy to treat varicose veins in San Diego. During this treatment option, the vein physician creates an incision on the surface of the skin to insert an endovenous laser, a laser fiber attached to a catheter. The endovenous laser enters through the incision and into the affected saphenous vein. Once the endovenous laser is in place, the phlebologist injects local anesthesia to the vein walls, before triggering the laser fiber. The laser energy destroys the diseased vein, rerouting the accumulated blood to healthier veins.

VenaSeal Varicose Vein Treatment

VenaSeal is a minimally invasive procedure in which the phlebologist treats varicose veins using a medical adhesive. During this treatment option, the vein physician injects a medical adhesive called VenaSeal into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. VenaSeal fuses the vein’s walls, essentially shutting it down. The accumulated blood flows to healthier veins while the diseased vein hardens and gets absorbed by the body.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy Treatment Option

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein doctor creates incisions on the surface of the skin and manually removes the superficial varicose veins and spider veins. Ambulatory phlebotomy is a cosmetic procedure used to get rid of the visible symptoms of vein disease after the primary varicose vein treatment.

Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Treatment

Sclerotherapy is a spider vein treatment used to get rid of spider veins. During this minimally invasive procedure, the spider vein doctor injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins. Sclerosant seals the walls of the veins, turning them into scar tissues. Over time, the hardened scar tissues get absorbed by the body and fade away from the skin. Sclerotherapy only removes the spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease. As such, sclerotherapy is either used if you don’t have underlying vein disease or after the primary varicose vein treatment.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Procedures

Minimally invasive varicose vein treatment options are non-surgical and performed under local anesthesia. As such, minimally invasive procedures cause minimal pain or discomfort during or after the procedure. Furthermore, minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have a 97% success rate, making them nearly flawless. They also have a negligible risk of side effects or complications. Furthermore, minimally invasive procedures are in-office treatments that conclude within an hour with no hospitalization or downtime. As such, you can resume your daily activity soon after the varicose vein treatment. Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are also eligible for insurance coverage because they’re medically necessary.
