Types of Vein Treatment Options
Laser Vein Removal
Laser vein removal is one of the most frequent ways to treat varicose veins. This minimally-invasive procedure offers a quick recovery period with consistently positive results. Through a minuscule laser fiber placed into the problem heat from the laser closes and permanently removes the vein from the blood’s circulation. The result is smoother-looking legs free from bulging or dark varicose veins.
For reticular and spider veins, sclerotherapy is another minimally-invasive treatment option. The procedure can be done in-office as well and involves an injection known as a sclerosant into the targeted vein. The solution dissolves and/or collapses the problem vein, which disappears from the patient’s body, providing a much more pleasing appearance and dealing with any itching or other types of discomfort sometimes associated with enlarged veins.
Another type of minimally invasive varicose vein treatment is microphlebectomy. In this procedure, an incision is made close to the problematic vein, and, using a tiny hook and a local anesthetic, a physician grabs the vein and removes it manually from the patient’s body. It’s a simple procedure that can be performed over an hour. It might sound old-fashioned but it’s highly effective and sometimes the best choice.
