State of the Art Vein Treatment in Bergen County
Bergen County, NJ – The Vein Treatment Clinic announces advanced treatment options for venous disorders. Patients experiencing the symptoms of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), including spider veins, varicose veins, leg cramps, and Restless Leg Syndrome, can take advantage of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment methods performed on-site at our Bergen County vein centers.
The Basics of Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a condition in which your veins are unable to effectively carry blood from the lower part of your body to the heart. Unfortunately, this condition often goes undiagnosed, which means unnecessary discomfort for patients.
Veins are responsible for carrying blood to the heart, where it is pumped to the lungs to drop off carbon dioxide and pick up oxygen. In healthy veins, a series of one-way valves open to let blood through, then close to prevent backflow.
If the valves become damaged through disease or injury, blood can leak through. It begins to pool in your legs and ankles, putting pressure on the vessel walls. The veins start to swell, and they often take on a thick, knotted, twisted appearance that protrudes against the surface of the skin as varicose veins. The vessels may also appear as a thin network of red, blue, and purple lines just beneath the skin, which are known as spider veins.
You may notice other symptoms of CVI, like feelings of achiness and heaviness in your legs. Leg cramps are quite common, and some patients develop Restless Leg Syndrome. If the disease is left untreated, you skin may be affected. In advanced cases, skin around the ankles becomes discolored and fragile. Small cuts and scrapes turn into wounds that are slow to heal, leading to other potentially serious health problems.
Vein doctors in New Jersey specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease, and they are focused on finding the underlying cause of your symptoms. This ensures that cases of CVI are caught early, minimizing the risk of serious side effects.
State of the Art Varicose Vein Treatments Now Available
The treatment of vein disease has come a long way since the days of invasive vein stripping surgery. In fact, it is often unnecessary to visit vascular surgeons at all. The Vein Treatment Clinic offers advanced vein treatments on-site, and most procedures can be completed in under an hour.
Today’s treatment methods are designed to be minimally invasive, so general anesthesia and a hospital stay are not necessary. Unhealthy veins are treated through a tiny incision in the skin, and local anesthetics are employed to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Treatments are designed to permanently close unhealthy veins. Blood is automatically rerouted through other, healthier veins. Once the unhealthy veins are no longer in use, your body reabsorbs the tissue. This decreases or eliminates symptoms of vein disease, like varicose veins and spider veins.
Options for vein treatment in Bergen County include these cutting-edge techniques:
- Radiofrequency Ablаtіоn (RFA)
- Endоvеnоuѕ Lаѕеr Ablаtіоn (EVLA)
You can expect to return to your normal activities right away after your treatment. The use of compression stockings may be recommended, and your vein doctor may request that you refrain from strenuous exercise for a week or two following the procedure.
