What is the Best Vein Therapy?

Do you have spider veins or varicose veins in legs? If so, you’re probably looking out for the best vein therapy for your vein conditions.

There are a lot of potential treatments for varicose veins and spider veins. Some of the best vein therapy options include sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, VenaSeal, and ambulatory phlebectomy.

These are all minimally invasive vein treatments suitable for different situations. As a rule, you should altogether avoid vascular surgeries like vein ligation and vein stripping.

So, how do you decide what is the best vein therapy for your specific needs? And why do you need vein therapy?

In this article, we discuss the importance of vein therapy and the best treatments for varicose and spider veins.

What are Varicose Veins? What Causes Spider Veins and Varicose Veins?

Spider veins and varicose veins are a dense cluster of blood vessels that either appear on the surface of your skin or protrude out of your skin due to accumulated blood.

Spider veins and varicose veins in legs often occur as a direct result of an underlying condition in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins. This underlying condition is called chronic venous insufficiency.

Venous insufficiency may start with fairly mild symptoms like spider veins, restless legs syndrome, leg heaviness, etc. However, if left untreated, venous insufficiency advances rapidly, and you suffer from complications like bleeding, leg ulcers, skin disease, and deep vein thrombosis.

As such, it’s crucial to find the right vein therapy that treats the underlying vein disease, and also the symptomatic spider veins and varicose veins.

 

 

What is the Best Varicose Veins Treatment?

Varicose veins are large blood vessels that protrude out of the surface of the skin, looking like a dense mass of twisted and knotted ropes. The presence of varicose veins is a clear indication that you have underlying venous insufficiency. As such, the vein doctor must treat varicose veins using minimally invasive treatments that remove or destroy the diseased saphenous vein.

As mentioned previously, you should completely avoid vascular surgery options like vein ligation and vein stripping because they’re complicated and risky. Instead, you should opt for minimally invasive treatment options that are safe, painless, and effective.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment in which the vein doctor inserts a catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged into the vein, the vein specialist activates it to generate heat energy that collapses the diseased vein.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment in which the vein doctor inserts an endovenous laser into the problematic saphenous vein. Once the laser is in, the vein doctor uses laser therapy to destroy the diseased vein and restore blood circulation.

Varicose and Spider Veins | Vein Diseases

VenaSeal

VenaSeal is a minimally invasive method in which the vein doctor injects a medical adhesive or vein glue into the diseased saphenous vein. The vein glue fuses the vein walls, essentially turning it into a scar tissue that gradually gets absorbed by the body.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive treatment in which the vein doctor creates incisions on the surface of your skin and removes the superficial varicose veins. This procedure is done after the primary procedure to remove the varicose veins left over after the treatment.

What is the Best Spider Vein Treatment?

Spider veins are a dense cluster of red blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin. Unlike varicose veins, however, the presence of spider veins doesn’t automatically indicate underlying vein disease. In fact, in a lot of cases, spider veins only cause cosmetic issues.

To determine if your spider veins are caused by underlying vein disease, the vein doctor must first run a Doppler ultrasound test. During this test, the vein doctor will visualize the blood flow in your veins to spot anomalies. It will let them know if you have venous insufficiency.

If you have vein disease, the vein doctor will recommend one of the aforementioned varicose vein treatments. However, if your spider veins aren’t caused by vein disease, your vein doctor will recommend a sclero injection.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which the vein doctor injects a solution called sclerosant into your spider veins to harden them into scar tissues. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, and the hardened scar tissues gradually get absorbed by the body and fade away.

How to Soothe Varicose Vein Pain?

Do you have varicose vein pain? If so, you must seek varicose vein treatment immediately — that’s the only way to treat the leg veins pain permanently. However, in the meantime, you can make some small lifestyle changes to take the pressure off your varicose veins.

The following are some tips to soothe varicose vein pain:

  • Wear compression stockings on your leg veins to apply pressure on the varicose veins and facilitate blood circulation.
  • Engage in cardiovascular exercises that work your calf muscles, such as running, yoga, cycling, and swimming.
  • Elevate your legs while sitting because that will make blood flow towards your heart.
