VNUS Closure is an effective solution for treating varicose veins. This minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency technology to close affected veins so they disappear. Blood is rerouted through healthy veins in the area.
Patients can return home immediately after VNUS Closure and are instructed to walk for several days after to encourage healthy blood flow. Symptoms associated with varicose veins dissipate within a few days after treatment and cosmetic results are seen within a matter of weeks.
Foam Ablation is an effective method for treating larger varicose veins with minimal discomfort and no downtime. This is a relatively new option that addresses larger varicose veins with non-invasive Sclerotherapy options.
Like Sclerotherapy, this procedure involves injections of a foam sclerosing agent directly into the affected vein causing it to seal shut and disappear. The foam agent can be tracked through ultrasound imaging which allows for treatment of veins deeper in the leg.
Foam ablation is performed as an outpatient procedure and takes less than an hour. Patients are encouraged to return to regular activities immediately after treatment.
Laser Treatment of Spider Veins is usually performed without any type of anesthesia using a non-invasive laser treatment. State of the art lasers deliver light energy below the surface of the skin, causing affected veins to seal shut and gradually disappear. The procedure is non-invasive with no downtime afterward.
Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive, outpatient treatment for spider veins and small superficial varicose veins located near the surface of the skin. The procedure involves injections of a sclerosing agent directly into the affected vein causing it to seal shut and gradually disappear. Blood is rerouted through healthy veins in the area.
This procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete and no anesthesia is required. Most patients that receive sclerotherapy can return to regular activities immediately after treatment. Patients generally require 2-4 sclerotherapy sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve desired results.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat large varicose veins. Tiny incisions are used to remove the bulging vein in small portions for minimal discomfort for the patient. The procedure usually takes less than one hour to complete and patients can return to regular activities the same day.
Phlebectomy is performed as an outpatient procedure under a local anesthetic. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after the procedure.
