What treatments are available?
Venefit/VNUS Closure have replaced saphenous vein stripping in the management of venous insufficiency, the most common cause of varicose veins. The treatment is done using local anesthesia in the comfort of our office. A small IV is placed in the saphenous vein near the knee and a catheter is inserted into the vein. Guided by ultrasound, the catheter is advanced to the highest failing valve, stopping the reflux at its source. Once in place, the catheter - actually a miniscule fiber optic cable - is heated via radiofrequency energy. As the catheter is withdrawn from the leg, the heat collapses the vein and seals it shut.
Microphlebectomy: an in office procedure for treating larger surface veins. Performed with local anesthetic, small nicks are made in the skin and using special tiny instruments, the unhealthy bulging veins are gently removed. There typically are no stitches and no downtime from normal activity. The leg is healthier and looks much better with the disappearance of unwanted veins.
Sclerotherapy: an in office treatment used to eliminate and improve “spider veins” – tiny purple and red veins on the surface of the skin. Using a micro-needle, a solution is injected into the unsightly vessels causing them to close and ultimately fade and disappear. There is minimal to no discomfort with this treatments and no downtime.
