A 5-Step Guide to Varicose Vein Treatment Near New Jersey
Step 1: Booking an Appointment
Your varicose vein treatment in New Jersey starts with an initial consultation. Vein Treatment Clinic, widely recognized as the best accredited vein center in New Jersey, has state-of-the-art offices in Clifton and Paramus. Our Clifton vein center is located at 1117 US-46 Suite 205, a short drive from the Ford dealership on route 46-E. Our Paramus vein center is located at 140 NJ-17 #103, just off the Garden State Parkway near the Paramus Park Mall. Both vein clinics have plenty of parking spaces. After you schedule a consultation online, we encourage you to request free insurance verification.
Step 2: Initial Consultation
As mentioned above, your varicose vein treatment starts with an initial consultation with our exceptional vascular surgeons. The Clifton facility is led by Dr. Sareh Rajaee, and the Paramus facility is led by Dr. Todd Kobrinski — both vascular surgeons are exceptionally skilled, trained, and experienced. The primary goal of the initial consultation is to understand your concerns and determine if you have venous insufficiency, the underlying condition responsible for most vein problems. Our vein doctors provide comprehensive vein treatments that address the root cause of your vein problems rather than just the superficial symptoms.
Most medical centers treat spider veins and varicose veins without diagnosing the underlying venous insufficiency. That’s sort of like painting over a wall instead of fixing the broken pipes underneath, i.e., a temporary and cosmetic solution. We’re ethically bound to provide comprehensive vein treatments that address the root cause of your vein problems, ensuring optimal and lasting relief. Our considered vein care approach has allowed us to maintain a perfect track record, as evidenced by our flawless 5-star ratings and reviews from all patients.
During the initial consultation, our vein doctors carefully examine your leg veins, discuss your symptoms, and review your medical history. They’ll ask you if you experience leg heaviness, leg pain, leg swelling, restless leg syndrome, or frequent leg cramps, especially at the end of the day or after long periods of inactivity. These are clear warning signs of underlying venous insufficiency. The vein doctors will also go through your medical history and discuss your family’s history of vein problems to determine the likelihood of vein disease. The initial consultation will be followed by vascular imaging.
Step 3: Vascular Imaging
The vascular surgeons at VTC specialize in the latest vascular imaging tests, such as Doppler Ultrasound. During vascular imaging tests, our vein doctors use ultrasound capabilities to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins on a computer screen. Backward blood circulation and accumulated blood in the leg veins indicate chronic venous insufficiency. Diagnosing vein disease allows us to curate a personalized vein treatment plan. Furthermore, the vascular imaging results also support your insurance claims, optimizing your insurance coverage. You must avoid vein doctors or vein centers that recommend treatments without investigating the root cause of your vein problems.

Step 4: Primary Treatment
The primary treatment is meant for patients with underlying chronic venous insufficiency, as determined through vascular imaging. If you have chronic venous insufficiency, your best minimally invasive vein treatment options include radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. These are incredibly safe and effective vein treatments that seal or collapse the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems. Once the diseased vein is removed, the accumulated blood reroutes to healthier leg veins and restores effective blood circulation to the heart.
Endovenous radiofrequency ablation and laser ablation are fairly similar. The vein doctor administers local anesthesia and makes a small incision on the skin’s surface. The incision is an entry point for a catheter or laser fiber, driven using ultrasound guidance into the diseased saphenous vein. The catheter and laser fiber are activated to deliver thermal energy or laser energy. The diseased saphenous vein collapses, rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier leg veins. Both procedures are equally effective, but endovenous laser ablation causes more post-procedural discomfort.
VenaSeal is one of the latest minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins and underlying vein disease. The vein doctor administers local anesthesia and injects a medical-grade adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein. The vein glue fuses the vein’s walls, turning it into a hardened tissue eventually absorbed by the body. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier leg veins, restoring effective blood circulation. VenaSeal is completely safe and effective, but it’s not yet covered by all insurance plans because it’s a relatively new procedure.
Step 5: Cosmetic Treatment
The cosmetic treatment refers to minimally invasive procedures that remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease. The vein doctor recommends cosmetic treatments after the primary vein treatment or if you don’t have underlying venous insufficiency. Ambulatory phlebectomy is the best minimally invasive treatment for superficial varicose veins. And sclerotherapy is the best minimally invasive spider vein treatment. Both are equally safe, effective, and painless, but they’re not covered by insurance plans because they only provide cosmetic relief.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure wherein the vein doctor physically extracts the superficial varicose veins through small incisions on the skin’s surface. Sclerotherapy is a procedure wherein the vein doctor injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins to fuse their walls, turning them into hardened tissues eventually absorbed by the body. The spider veins gradually fade away within 3 weeks, though some patients need 2 to 3 sessions for optimal results. Your vein specialist will recommend the ideal sclerotherapy frequency for your unique needs.
