If you are struggling from the pain of varicose veins, you should visit a vein specialist as soon as possible to discuss your options for varicose vein treatment in Glendale, Phoenix, Chandler, Avondale or Surprise. The good news is that varicose vein treatment options are now more affordable, safe, and effective than ever before. Here is a look at the most popular varicose vein treatment options offered by vein doctors in Arizona.
Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment Options
Sclerotherapy is the least invasive varicose vein treatment option available to you. Your vein doctor can perform sclerotherapy to treat large and small varicose veins, as well as smaller web-like veins and have results with no down time. During your sclerotherapy procedure, your vein doctor will inject a saline solution directly into each affected vein area on your leg(s). This solution will immediately kill the vein, causing it to eventually become reabsorbed by the body. This vein treatment, for both men and women, is so popular because it is painless and it requires very little downtime and can be done during your lunch hour. The best part is that it has a very low risk of complications and side effects and your leg(s) will be ready for spring and summer.
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) also known as Laser Vein Removal
Endovenous laser therapy, or laser vein removal, is a minimally invasive vein treatment. This vein treatment has up to a 98% success rate and provides almost immediate relief of varicose vein pain and other symptoms. The vein treatment is performed by a vein doctor on an outpatient basis and takes only about an hour to perform. The procedure requires minimal downtime and does not cause scarring or other serious side effects at all as there are so many that have benefited from this procedure. You will receive a local anesthetic prior to the procedure. Your experienced vein doctor will then use a small hollow needle and/or a laser probe to shrink your affected vein(s).
Ambulatory Phlebectomy Procedure
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a surgical varicose vein treatment. Your experienced vein doctor will make a very small incision near the affected vein(a) so that he/she can remove the vein entirely. This vein treatment is very popular with patients because it provides permanent relief from varicose vein(s) and the pain associated with this issue. Because it is a surgical vein treatment, the procedure does require some recovery time and has a higher risk of side effects and complications. A follow up appointment is usually required.
