Vein Treatment Clinic provides the best varicose vein treatment in NJ because of a comprehensive vein care plan. Most medical centers treat spider veins and varicose veins without diagnosing the root cause of your vein problems. However, most vein problems are caused by an underlying circulatory disorder called chronic venous insufficiency. Our vein doctors examine your leg veins, review your medical history, and run advanced vascular imaging tests to determine if you have underlying venous insufficiency. They curate a personalized vein treatment plan based on your diagnosis, cosmetic goals, and lifestyle.
If you have underlying venous insufficiency, we address the root cause of your vein problems before treating the superficial symptoms. If you don’t have underlying vein disease, we simply remove the spider veins and varicose veins. We only provide minimally invasive vein treatments because they’re safe, effective, comfortable, and convenient. All minimally invasive treatments conclude within 30 to 60 minutes with no downtime or extended recovery period. In fact, most of the patients at Vein Treatment Clinic’s Clifton and Paramus offices resume their daily work and activities immediately after the vein treatment. The following is a brief overview of your vein treatment options.
If you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency:
- Radiofrequency Ablation: The vein doctor makes an incision on the skin’s surface to insert a catheter that delivers thermal energy to collapse the diseased saphenous vein.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation: The vein specialist makes an incision on the skin’s surface to insert a laser fiber that delivers laser energy to collapse the affected saphenous vein.
- VenaSeal: The vein physician injects an FDA-approved medical-grade adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein to seal its walls.
After the primary vein treatment or if you don’t have underlying vein disease:
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy: The vein doctor makes small incisions on the skin’s surface to physically remove the superficial varicose veins.
- Sclerotherapy: The vein specialist injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins to fuse their walls, turning them into scar tissues eventually absorbed by the body.

Is walking good for varicose veins?
Yes, walking is good for varicose veins and your general vascular health. Walking frequently improves your blood circulation and induces calf muscles, pushing the blood towards the heart. As such, walking eases the discomfort caused by varicose veins by pushing some of the accumulated blood back towards the heart. However, walking only provides temporary relief from the pain caused by varicose veins. It’s not a long-term solution or treatment for varicose veins.
Is there a cream for varicose veins?
Online sources are full of recommendations for topical creams for varicose veins. However, you can’t treat varicose veins with topical creams or ointments because they don’t address the root cause of your vein problems — chronic venous insufficiency. Varicose veins are dilated blood vessels with excessive blood accumulation resulting from broken or malfunctioning vein valves. The only way to treat varicose veins is through minimally invasive procedures that remove the diseased vein.
Is massage good for varicose veins?
Massage can alleviate the discomfort and pressure caused by varicose veins. Massaging the leg veins may help move some of the accumulated blood towards your heart, relieving the discomfort. However, massage provides temporary relief from the discomfort caused by varicose veins — it doesn’t treat varicose veins or the underlying venous insufficiency. Please consult reliable vein doctors to discuss your minimally invasive vein treatment options.
What happens if you don’t treat varicose veins?
If you don’t treat varicose veins and the underlying venous insufficiency, blood will continue accumulating in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood will lead to increased vascular dilation. Over time, the vein walls will be overly extended due to excessive blood accumulation, making them likely to burst upon the slightest impact. That can lead to profuse bleeding, for which you have to be rushed to the emergency room. Other complications of vein disease include skin discoloration, skin disease, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.
Can I walk after vein ablation?
Yes, you can walk after all minimally invasive treatments, including endovenous radiofrequency and laser ablations. These procedures are safe and painless. You might experience mild soreness, swelling, or redness around the treatment sites, but you can resume all your daily activities and work immediately. However, you should avoid lifting heavy objects for a few days and wear compression stockings for a few weeks.
How much does a varicose vein treatment cost?
The cost of varicose vein treatment depends on several factors, including underlying venous insufficiency, the chosen treatment option, and the number of varicose veins. Most varicose vein treatments cost several thousand dollars. Your vein doctor will provide a complete breakdown of your varicose vein treatment costs after your initial appointment.
Is varicose vein treatment covered by insurance?
Varicose vein treatments are covered by insurance plans if they address the underlying chronic venous insufficiency. Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are covered by all insurance plans because they always treat vein disease. Sclerotherapy isn’t generally covered by insurance plans because it treats spider veins — but our vein doctors might extend coverage to it if you have underlying vein disease.
