Varicose Vein Treatments:
Multiple effective treatment options exist for patients with varicose veins. The best method of treatment depends on the patient’s unique venous composition and medical history. The severity and location of your varicosity, as well as any symptoms and skin changes help your doctor determine the best course of action.
Potential Treatments Include:
- Sclerotherapy: injecting liquid or foam into the damaged vessel to destroy it
- Ablаtіоn: employing radiofrequency, laser, or heat to destroy damaged veins
- Surgеrу: stripping or pulling the veins out surgically, known as “phlebectomy”
- Elevating legs while seated or lying down
- Support ѕtосkіngѕ
NOTE: Sclerotherapy and Radiofrequency Ablation remain the best options for most patients with vаrісоѕе vеіnѕ.
Is Varicose Vein Treatment Safe?
When performed by a board-certified vein doctor, varicose vein treatment is safe and easy for the majority of patients. The introduction of minimally invasive therapy at the turn of the 21st century vastly improved the safety profile of vein treatments. While vein treatment is safer than ever, it’s still essential to seek treatment from a trained vein doctor who customizes treatment for each patient. The award-winning vein doctors at New Jersey Vein Center tailor the treatment specifically to you.
