Minimally Invasive Varicose Veins Treatments
Our board-certified vein doctor starts with one of the following minimally invasive varicose vein treatments — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal. As the primary varicose vein treatments, their goal is to identify and collapse the diseased saphenous vein, treating the underlying vein disease.
In the past, vein doctors could only treat varicose veins using complicated vascular surgeries that required hospitalization, had a long recovery period, and had a high risk of complications. However, minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are nonsurgical, cause minimal pain or discomfort, and have a negligible risk of side effects.
Furthermore, these are outpatient procedures, i.e., they conclude within an hour at the vein center with no downtime or hospitalization. You can resume most of your daily activities immediately after the vein treatment. That’s why most patients schedule varicose vein treatments during their work lunch breaks.
Radiofrequency ablation is one of the most effective and popular minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. During the radiofrequency ablation procedure, the board-certified vein doctor applies local anesthesia on your skin’s surface before creating a small incision. The vein doctor inserts a catheter through the incision, using vascular imaging to guide it into the diseased saphenous vein. Once the catheter is lodged inside the diseased vein, the vein specialist applies local anesthesia to the vein’s walls and then activates the catheter. The thermal energy collapses the diseased vein, sending the accumulated blood to healthier veins.
Endovenous Laser Ablation
Endovenous laser ablation is a popular varicose vein treatment with a 97% success rate, but it causes a little more post-procedural discomfort than radiofrequency ablation. During the endovenous laser ablation procedure, the board-certified vein specialist applies local anesthesia and creates a small incision on the skin’s surface. The vein physician inserts an endovenous laser through the incision, using ultrasound to guide it into the diseased saphenous vein. Once the laser fiber is lodged within the saphenous vein, the vein doctor applies tumescent anesthesia to the vein’s walls. Finally, the vein doctor activates the laser fiber, generating laser energy to collapse the problematic vein.
VenaSeal is a medical-grade adhesive used to seal vein walls. During the VenaSeal procedure, the board-certified vein doctor injects the vein glue into the diseased saphenous vein, using vascular imaging for guidance. The vein glue fuses the saphenous vein’s walls, essentially turning it into scar tissue. The accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, and the diseased vein eventually gets absorbed by the body. VenaSeal is one of the latest varicose vein treatments, having only recently received FDA approval, so it’s not yet eligible for insurance coverage.
Minimally Invasive Spider Vein Treatments
After the primary varicose veins treatments, the board-certified vein doctor may recommend minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, like ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy. These are considered cosmetic procedures because they only remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins visible on your skin’s surface. As such, they make you look better and improve your confidence, but they’re not medically necessary.
During ambulatory phlebectomy, the vein doctor treats varicose veins by physically extracting them through incisions on the skin’s surface. The incision scars gradually heal over a few weeks, improving your leg’s appearance.
During sclerotherapy, the vein specialist injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins. Sclerosant fuses the spider veins’ walls, turning them into hardened scar tissues. Over time, the hardened scar tissues get absorbed by the body, fading away from your skin’s surface within a few weeks.
