Our Vein Center in New York Describes Cutting-Edge Treatments for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins
August 29, 2020
Introducing Vein Treatment Clinic, the best vein center in New York for cutting-edge treatments.
Vein Treatment Clinic is widely considered the best Manhattan vein center in New York for cutting-edge treatments. Our vein clinic is equipped with the latest technologies necessary to provide minimally invasive treatments, such as ClariVein, ClosureFAST, and VNUS. We leverage these advanced technologies and equipment to provide the safest and most effective cutting-edge treatments for varicose veins and spider veins, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, VenaSeal, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy.
During your initial consultation, our board-certified and Harvard-trained vein doctors carefully examine your varicose veins and spider veins to look for signs of vein disease. We don’t simply provide cosmetic treatments to remove the visible varicose veins and spider veins from your skin’s surface. Instead, we use vascular imaging to determine if you have underlying venous insufficiency and treat the root cause of your vein conditions to ensure you don’t have a relapse.
We use minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and spider veins because they’re safe, painless, and conclude within an hour with no downtime. As such, you can resume most of your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment. Our board-certified vein doctors have specialized training with cutting edge treatments, and they have a perfect track record, as evidenced by our 5-star ratings and reviews from patients.
If you have any signs or symptoms of vein disease, including varicose veins and spider veins, please consult our vein doctors. You can find our Midtown Manhattan vein clinic at 290 Madison Avenue, just across from the Grand Central Station and a short walk from the iconic Empire State Building. Our vein center in New York is extremely accessible — you can’t miss it. If you want to find out more about our cutting-edge treatments, please continue reading for a detailed overview.
1. Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency ablation is the most popular minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. During this minimally invasive treatment, the vein specialist creates an incision on your skin’s surface after applying local anesthesia. The incision is an entry point to insert a catheter under ultrasound guidance, driving it into the diseased saphenous vein. Once the catheter is lodged in place, the vein specialist applies anesthesia to the vein’s walls. Finally, the catheter is activated to generate thermal energy, collapsing the diseased saphenous vein. The accumulated blood automatically flows to healthier veins, and the diseased vein gets absorbed by the body.
2. Endovenous Laser Ablation
Endovenous laser ablation is an extremely effective minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. During this cutting-edge treatment, the vein specialist creates an incision on your skin’s surface after applying anesthesia. With vascular imaging guidance, the vein doctor inserts a laser fiber and catheter through the incision and into the diseased saphenous vein. Once the laser fiber is within the saphenous vein, the vein specialist applies tumescent anesthesia, i.e., delivers anesthesia to the vein’s walls. Finally, the vein doctor activates the laser fiber to generate laser energy, which immediately destroys the affected saphenous vein. The accumulated blood automatically reroutes to healthier veins, and the problematic vein eventually gets absorbed by the body.
VenaSeal is one of the most recent cutting-edge treatments for varicose veins and spider veins, having recently received FDA approval. VenaSeal is the name of a medical-grade adhesive used to seal veins. During this minimally invasive treatment, the vein doctor injects this vein glue into the diseased saphenous vein. The vein glue fuses the saphenous vein’s walls, turning it into a hardened tissue. The accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Meanwhile, the hardened vein gets absorbed by the body.
4. Ambulatory Phlebectomy
Ambulatory phlebectomy is one of the best cutting-edge treatments used to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins left on your skin’s surface after the primary vein treatment. During the ambulatory phlebectomy procedure, the vein doctor physically removes the superficial varicose veins through incisions on the skin’s surface. Once the superficial varicose veins are removed, the incisions are sutured and allowed to heal.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment used for spider veins. During sclerotherapy, the vein doctor injects a sclerosant medicine into the spider veins, turning them into hardened scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body. As the spider veins harden and get absorbed, they also fade away from the skin’s surface. However, sclerotherapy is a cosmetic treatment, i.e., it only removes visible spider veins without addressing underlying venous insufficiency.
Why Minimally Invasive Treatments?
In the past, varicose veins and spider veins could only be treated with complicated vascular surgeries, like vein ligation and venous bypass surgery. These procedures were complicated, necessitated hospitalization, had a long recovery period, and increased risk of infections. However, minimally invasive treatments have a much higher success rate, cause minimal pain or discomfort, have a negligible risk of side effects, and conclude within an hour with no downtime. In fact, most patients can opt for these cutting-edge treatments during their work lunch break. It’s also worth noting that radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are also eligible for insurance coverage because they’re medically necessary vein treatments.
