What is the Best Vein Treatment in Houston?

If you’re suffering from varicose veins and spider veins, you may be looking for the best vein treatment in Houston, Texas. Fortunately, thanks to modern technologies, there are a lot of minimally invasive and non-surgical varicose vein treatments available. However, there’s no single best vein treatment in Houston.

The vein treatment center in Houston will have to diagnose the root cause of your varicose veins and spider veins and study your medical history. As such, they will have to find a vein treatment in Houston that’s ideal for your specific needs. The following is a brief description of the various minimally invasive varicose vein treatments available:

  • Radiofrequency Ablation — use of thermal energy to treat vein disease.
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation — use of laser energy to treat vein disease.
  • VenaSeal — injection of medical adhesives to treat vein disease.
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy — surgical removal of superficial varicose veins.
  • Sclerotherapy — use of a medicine to seal the spider veins.

In this article, we give you a detailed description of what happens during minimally invasive varicose vein treatments at a reputable vein treatment center in Houston, Texas.

Radiofrequency Ablation at Vein and Vascular Center

Radiofrequency ablation is one of the best minimally invasive varicose vein treatments at our Houston vein and vascular center. During this varicose vein treatment, the vein doctor creates an incision on the surface of your skin. The vein doctor uses that incision as an access point to insert a catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is lodged inside the diseased saphenous vein, the vein physician will inject local anesthesia into the diseased vein to protect the surrounding tissues. Finally, the vein dr will activate the catheter to generate thermal energy that collapses the diseased saphenous vein’s walls. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins, thus restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

Endovenous Laser Ablation at Vein Treatment Center in Houston

Radiofrequency ablation is one of the most effective minimally invasive varicose vein treatments at our vein treatment center in Houston. During this minimally invasive procedure, the vein physician will create an incision on your skin to insert their laser fiber and catheter. The vein doctor will use an ultrasound to guide the endovenous laser into the problematic saphenous vein. Once the endovenous laser is in place, the vein doctor will inject local anesthesia to protect the surrounding tissues. Finally, the phlebologist will activate the laser fiber to generate enough laser energy to destroy the saphenous vein’s wall, thus freeing the accumulated blood. As such, this procedure will immediately restore smooth blood circulation to the heart. The diseased saphenous vein will eventually harden and get absorbed by the body.

VenaSeal at Vein Center in Houston

VenaSeal is one of the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments at our vein center in Houston, Texas. During this minimally invasive procedure, the vein dr will inject a medical adhesive into the problematic saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. This medical adhesive will fuse the walls of the saphenous vein, essentially shutting it down. The accumulated blood will flow to healthier veins, thus restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Meanwhile, the sealed saphenous vein will harden into scar tissue, eventually getting absorbed by the body.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy at Vein Treatment Clinic

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is one of the best minimally invasive treatments for superficial varicose veins left behind after the primary vein treatment. During this minimally invasive procedure, the phlebologist in our vein treatment clinic will create numerous incisions on the surface of your skin to physically remove the superficial varicose veins. As such, you’ll have several surface scars after the treatment, but they will gradually fade away, restoring the natural beauty of your legs.

Sclerotherapy at Laser Vein Removal Center

Sclerotherapy is the best minimally invasive spider vein treatment at our laser vein removal center in Houston, Texas. During the sclerotherapy procedure, the spider vein doctor will inject a medicine called sclerosant into the diseased spider veins. The sclerosant solution will fuse the walls of the spider veins, essentially turning them into scar tissues. The accumulated blood will reroute to healthier veins, and the scar tissues will eventually get absorbed by the body and fade away. A single sclerotherapy session can reduce the appearance of spider veins by up to 70% within three weeks.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein and Spider Vein Treatments

In the past, the only way to treat varicose veins was through complicated and risky vascular surgeries, like vein ligation, vein stripping, and venous bypass surgery. Not only were varicose vein surgeries risky, but they also had a lower success rate of only 85%. Compared to that, minimally invasive varicose vein and spider vein treatments have a 97% success rate. Furthermore, minimally invasive procedures are non-surgical, and they cause minimal pain or discomfort because of the local anesthesia. Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments also have a negligible risk of side effects or complications. Furthermore, minimally invasive procedures conclude within an hour with no downtime, which means you don’t have to take time off work. Varicose vein treatments like radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are also eligible for insurance coverage because they’re medically necessary procedures.
