As such, our vein center in Manhattan wants the varicose and spider veins treatment to be physically and emotionally comfortable. In this article, we provide a detailed description of every step involved in varicose and spider veins treatment.
- Step 1: Initial consultation to examine the spider and varicose vein symptoms.
- Step 2: Duplex Ultrasound procedure to identify the root cause of spider and varicose veins.
- Step 3: Minimally invasive procedure for varicose vein removal.
- Step 4: Minimally invasive treatment for spider veins and superficial varicose veins.
- Step 5: Vein doctors discuss post-operative care and recovery times.
Step 1: Initial consultation to examine the spider and varicose vein symptoms.
Before discussing varicose and spider veins treatment, you need a little background on spider and varicose veins. Chronic venous insufficiency is a circulatory disorder usually responsible for spider and varicose veins.
Venous insufficiency is a medical condition in which your vein valves collapse, causing blood to flow backward due to gravity, eventually pooling in your leg veins. Over time, the accumulation of blood in your leg veins leads to the formation of spider and varicose vein symptoms.
During your initial consultation, our board-certified vein specialists will look for signs and symptoms of vein disease, including restless leg syndromes, leg heaviness, leg pain, frequent leg cramps, spider and varicose veins, skin discoloration, swollen ankles, etc.
After the initial consultation, our board-certified vein specialists may administer a vascular imaging test called Duplex Ultrasound. During this test, a vascular ultrasound will visualize the blood flow in your leg veins.
Step 2: Duplex Ultrasound procedure to identify the root cause of spider and varicose veins.
Our vein doctors will interpret the ultrasound results to determine if you have venous insufficiency and detect the saphenous vein responsible for the spider and varicose veins. Our vein specialists will also discuss all of the best varicose and spider veins treatment options.
If you have underlying venous insufficiency, our vein specialists recommend radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal. If you don’t have underlying vein disease, our vein specialists treat the superficial spider and varicose veins with sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy.
Step 3: Minimally invasive procedure for varicose vein removal.
Radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal are the best minimally invasive procedures for varicose vein removal. All of these varicose and spider veins treatments have the same goal but different methods of achieving that goal.
The primary purpose of a minimally invasive varicose and spider veins treatment is to collapse or close the diseased saphenous vein. Once the diseased vein is removed, the accumulated blood will automatically reroute to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.
However, different spider and varicose vein treatments have different methodologies. Radiofrequency ablation collapses the diseased vein with thermal energy. Endovenous laser ablation collapses the diseased vein with laser energy. And VenaSeal collapses the diseased saphenous vein by sealing the vein’s walls with a medical adhesive.
Step 4: Minimally invasive treatment for spider veins and superficial varicose veins.
The primary minimally invasive varicose and spider vein treatments address the underlying vein disease, but they don’t remove all the superficial spider and varicose veins. After the primary vein treatment, you may still need a minimally invasive treatment for spider veins and superficial varicose veins. That’s where sclerotherapy comes in.
Sclerotherapy is the best minimally invasive treatment for spider veins. During the sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins, our vein doctors inject a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins. Sclerosant hardens the spider veins, turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin.
Step 5: Vein doctors discuss post-operative care and recovery times.
All minimally invasive spider and varicose vein treatments have a 97% success rate with a negligible risk of side effects or complications. They also cause minimal pain or discomfort during and after the procedure.
Furthermore, all minimally invasive varicose and spider vein treatments are in-office and outpatient procedures. They conclude within an hour in the vein doctor’s office, and there are no downtime or recovery times involved. You can resume most of your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
However, before you leave, our board-certified vein doctors will discuss post-operative care. Our vein specialists may recommend wearing compression stockings for a few days or weeks. They may also recommend physical exercise for a specific period every day. You may also have to avoid heavy exercises or heavy lifting for a few days.
