Venous treatments at NE Laser Vein Institute
As bad as they may look and feel due to lack of knowledge, varicose veins and spider veins are often considered cosmetic and not a serious medical problem. However, varicose veins may indicate a critical blockage in deeper veins, a condition called deep vein thrombosis, that can be life threatening. Consequently proper medical evaluation and treatment of varicose veins is important. Because chronic venous insufficiency is a progressive disease, symptoms will worsen if left untreated.
The evaluation includes a visual and physical examination of the legs and feet by the doctor, who checks for inflammation, areas that are tender to the touch, changes in skin color, ulcerations and other signs of skin breakdown.
In most cases an ultrasound test is ordered to determine if the valves in the veins are functioning properly and to check for evidence of a blood clot.
If symptoms persist and treatment is required, additional tests are performed to determine the best approach for curative treatment. For decades the only option was the in-hospital surgical ligation and stripping of the veins under general anesthesia. Today’s alternatives include less invasive procedures like endovenous laser treatments, mini phlebectomy and sclero therapy. Varicose veins that have been treated with laser therapy are very unlikely to become varicose again. However, it’s important to note that new veins are still susceptible to developing varicosities.
Bulging, unsightly and painful, varicose veins are eliminated via endovenous laser ablation (EVLT). Our D940 Laser has been proven highly effective for the treatment of venous reflux disease with a reported 95–97% success rate at a 12 month follow-up. Procedures are covered by Medicare and most insurances!
There are a number of treatment methods used to treat spider veins. One method employs a laser that applies energy to the surface of the skin using a special hand piece. Another treatment is sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a solution into the vein. Many times, a combination of both treatments can be used for optimal results.
