What Causes Varicose Veins and What is the Best Technology for Vein Repair?

Varicose veins and spider veins are both symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency. This condition prevents the valves in your veins from working properly, which means they do not keep blood flowing back to the heart. Instead, blood flows backward in the veins and pools in the legs. This puts pressure on the walls of the veins that eventually causes them to bulge outward. Vein doctors can close unhealthy veins, re-routing blood flow to healthy veins and improving your circulation. Any experienced vein doctor can help choose the best Vein Repair procedure for you.

What are the Symptoms of Chronic Venous Insufficiency?

Chronic venous insufficiency causes varicose veins, which are gnarled veins that bulge outward against the skin of the leg. Another common symptom of chronic venous insufficiency is spider veins, which are clusters of red, purple, or blue veins that are easily visible through the skin. This condition can also cause heaviness, swelling, and pain in the affected leg. Sometimes, you might also notice the skin darkening, or develop ulcers that take a long time to heal. To find out whether you have chronic venous insufficiency, you need to see a vein specialist, who can assess your symptoms, examine the veins in your legs, and give you a diagnosis.

There are mutliple different methods of vein repair, what is the best treatment for you? Get advice from a local expert.

What are the Risk Factors for Chronic Venous Insufficiency?

You are more likely to develop chronic venous insufficiency if any of the following risk factors apply to you:

  •          Family history
  •          Aging
  •          Being obese or overweight
  •          Being female
  •          Sitting or standing in the same position for long periods of time
  •          Pregnancy

Even if none of these risk factors apply, you could still develop chronic venous insufficiency. If your varicose veins or spider veins are bothering you, see a vein doctor NJ or vein doctor NYC to discuss your options for vein repair.

Which Doctor Should You See For Vein Repair, Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

If you have chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, or spider veins, you need to see a vein specialist. A vein doctor can evaluate your veins and let you know which vein repair treatments are most suitable for your condition.

Vein doctors are not necessarily surgeons. In fact, most modern treatments for varicose veins and spider veins are endovascular, which means they are much less invasive than surgery and don’t require general anesthetic.

When you search online for “vein doctor NYC” or “vein doctor NJ,” it is very important to choose a vein specialist who is board certified and well trained. Searching for “vein doctor New York” or “vein doctor New Jersey” might bring you to www.veintreatmentclinic.com, where you will find experienced vein specialists who can offer a wide range of vein repair treatment options.

How Do Vein Doctors Treat Varicose Veins?

Vein doctors in New York and New Jersey use a range of vein repair treatments to remove varicose veins and spider veins and treat chronic venous insufficiency. Radio frequency ablation, sclerotherapy, and endovenous laser therapy are some modern vein repair treatments that are available at www.veintreatmentclinic.com.

What is Radio Frequency Ablation?

Radio frequency ablation (RFA) involves a vein doctor inserting a tiny fiber into a vein through a small incision. When the doctor activates the fiber, it releases radio energy that heats the vein wall and causes it to collapse. This vein repair technique has a success rate of between 95 and 98%.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a well-established vein repair treatment with a high rate of success. It involves injecting a medical solution, known as sclerosant, into a varicose vein or spider vein. The medicine causes the vein to collapse. In the weeks following the procedure, the collapsed veins will gradually fade until they are no longer visible. To successfully remove all your varicose or spider veins, you might need more than one sclerotherapy session. Sclerotherapy is generally most suitable for smaller varicose veins and spider veins.

What is Endovenous Laser Therapy?

Endovenous laser therapy is similar to RFA, but instead of using radio energy the vein doctor uses laser energy to permanently close the damaged vein. With a long term success rate of 97%, this vein repair method causes no skin damage and very little discomfort. You can leave the clinic right after your treatment, although you will probably need to wear compression stockings for up to a week to help the treatment take effect.

Which Vein Repair Method is Right for Me?

The only way to know which vein repair method is the most suitable for treating your varicose veins or spider veins is to consult a qualified vein specialist. A vein doctor with many years of experience can examine your varicose veins, assess the severity and size of the affected blood vessels, and recommend the treatment that is most likely to give the best outcome.

How Do I Find a Vein Doctor New York or Vein Doctor New Jersey?

When they are looking for a vein doctor, New York residents often begin their search by typing “vein doctor NYC” into an online search engine. This delivers results such as www.veintreatmentclinic.com. The Vein Treatment Center has clinics in both New York and New Jersey, which means you can easily visit a qualified and experienced doctor for a consultation.
