spider and varicose vein treatment center

Introducing the Best Vein Doctor in Suffolk County

Dr. Caroline Novak, the medical director at Vein Treatment Clinic, Long Island, is currently the best vein doctor in Suffolk County, LI. She is a double board-certified vein doctor with specialized training in vascular imaging and minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. Dr. Novak maintains a perfect track record after hundreds of successful vein treatments. Her vein care philosophy is that the patient’s emotional comfort is just as important as their physical comfort during the vein procedure — a philosophy that’s made her incredibly popular amongst her patients who often fly to her vein clinic from across the country.

Dr. Novak also understands that general awareness of vein disease and varicose vein treatments is crucial. Vein disease is an extremely common but under-diagnosed circulatory disorder because most people don’t recognize its symptoms or have false assumptions about varicose vein treatments. As such, most people avoid consulting vein doctors until their condition worsens considerably. In this article, our vein doctor in Suffolk County wants to set the record straight, offering a thorough overview of vein disease and vein treatments.

Our vein treatment center is located in a town called Lindenhurst, on the Montauk highway right on the border of Suffolk County and Nassau County, a short drive from landmarks like the Bergen Point Golf Course. You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Novak now or continue reading to learn about vein disease.

Is it necessary to consult vein doctors for spider veins and varicose veins?

You may think that spider veins and varicose veins aren’t medically dangerous. You may even think you can treat spider veins and varicose veins with home remedies, like drinking apple cider vinegar, consuming witch hazel, etc. There are various online blogs that espouse such views. However, all of these views are false and grounded on pseudo-science.

The truth is, spider veins and varicose veins can be incredibly dangerous, and they can only be treated through medical intervention. Both varicose veins and spider veins are dilated blood vessels with excess blood accumulation. Spider veins appear on the surface of the skin in dense clusters. And varicose veins are further dilated, bulging out of the surface of the skin in a twisted form. Varicose veins and spider veins are caused by an underlying circulatory disorder in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins — the circulatory disorder is called venous insufficiency.

The only way to treat vein disease is through medical intervention. Vein doctors use minimally invasive vein treatments to remove or collapse the diseased saphenous vein, thus restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. As such, yes, you must consult vein doctors if you have spider veins and varicose veins.

How do you know it’s time to consult vein doctors?

You should look out for signs and symptoms of vein disease. The presence of spider veins and varicose veins is a clear indication that you must consult vein doctors. However, vein disease can also be identified through subtle signs and symptoms, such as frequent leg cramps, restless syndrome, leg pain, and throbbing leg veins, especially if these symptoms get worse at the end of the day or after long periods of sitting.

Varicose veins are often indicative of advanced vein disease. If you have varicose veins, you may also experience complications like profuse bleeding, skin disease, skin discoloration, swollen legs, edema, deep vein thrombosis, and leg ulcers. If you have any of these signs or symptoms, you must consult vein doctors immediately.

What are the benefits of minimally invasive varicose vein treatments?

You should avoid vascular surgeons and seek vein doctors specializing in minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. Vascular surgery is the historical method of treating vein disease, and it has a high risk of complications with a relatively low success rate. Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have a 97% success rate, they cause minimal pain, have a negligible risk of side effects, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime.

What is the best varicose vein treatment?

Radiofrequency ablation is widely hailed as the best varicose vein treatment. During radiofrequency ablation, the vein doctor applies local anesthesia and inserts a catheter through an incision on the skin. The vein doctor drives the catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is in the diseased vein, the vein doctor activates thermal energy to collapse the vein. The accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

What is the best spider vein treatment?

Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein treatment. During the sclerotherapy session, the vein doctor injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins, fusing their vein walls and turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic spider vein treatment because it only removes the visible spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease. As such, vein doctors usually perform this treatment after the primary varicose vein treatment.
