Varicose Vein & Spider Vein Removal
At Bella MD, we use state-of-the-art outpatient procedures to eliminate varicose veins and their accompanying health risks. Varicose veins are usually caused by a faulty valve in the vein. This allows the blood to flow back from the deeper higher-pressure veins into the lower-pressure surface veins, making them dilate and become visible. Our first step with every patient is to check the valves in your leg with an ultrasound to determine if you have this condition. Dr. Engleman will personally meet and consult with you on the best treatment plan for your needs.
Endoveneous Laser Therapy (EVLT)
Endoveneous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is an FDA approved technique excellent for treating the large bulging varicose veins and is vocered by most insurance plans. EVLT eliminates varicose veins using targeted laser energy to seal the faulty valve shut. It requires no hospital stay, involves little or no scarring, requires minimal recovery time, and has no side effects. In less than an hour, you can be free from bulging, twisted varicose veins and back to enjoying your everyday activities. EVLT is safe and is effective 98 percent of the time.
Sclerotherapy is a common, safe treatment for spider veins available to our Bella MD patients. In this procedure, we inject a liquid chemical into the vein. The vein walls swell, stick together and seal shut, stopping the blood flow and turning the vein into scar tissueover time the vein closes and it is eventually absorbed into your body.
Sclerotherapy requires no anesthesia or downtime, and you will just need to wear a compression stocking for a few days post treatment to speed healing and reduce swelling.
Some veins may disappear after one to two treatments, while others may require three to four spaced four to six weeks apart. The treatments typically take less than 30 minutes and are virtually painless. All spider vein therapy procedures are performed by Amy Rodgers, RN.
