A simple injection may be all you need to be rid of unsightly or uncomfortable veins. This procedure, called sclerotherapy, can be used to treat spider veins and larger veins.
If sclerotherapy is right for you, the procedure should cause your veins to disappear or become much smaller Sclerotherapy may also be recommended for the treatment of larger reticular veins. Many different techniques and solutions are available, and the recommendations will be discussed with you at the time of your initial consultation
Miniphlebectomy is a procedure that can be used on small and large veins In this procedure, tiny pinpoint holes are made with a small needle. Using specialized instruments, segments of the vein can be removed through these openings. The tiny openings heal with nearly invisible scars that are quite cosmetically acceptable. You won’t even have to wear stockings for an extended period of time with this procedure, which is done under local anesthetic with minimal down time.
TRANSCULTANEOUS LASER AND INTERMITTANT PULSED LIGHT (IPL)*
In some situations, spider veins and intermediate sized veins may be successfully treated in a comfortable and cost-effective way using a laser rather than chemical energy to achieve closure. Lasers with long and short wave length capability are available, allowing Veintec staff to treat superficial and deeper veins. Incidentally, these lasers also are useful for hair removal and removal of vascular and pigmented spots. These services are available at selected locations.
Since 2001, we have used lasers for ablating large veins. The LASE procedure uses laser energy to obliterate the interior portion of the vein. This usually can be completed in the clinic, with local anesthesia and minimal discomfort and downtime. Most patients can drive themselves home. Support stockings are usually not needed. Veintec clinics have preformed more than 2,500 LASE procedures.
Some problems, such as large varicose veins, may call for ligation, a procedure in which the connections between the damaged veins and the normal vein systems are interrupted. Ligation is usually done under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, often in combination with other procedures. Your initial consultation will give you and your physician an opportunity to discuss which treatment program may be best for you.
