Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent and, most importantly, permanent results with no side effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
Traditionally vein disease treatment involved surgical operations, performed under general anesthesia, required prolonged periods of recovery, left large scars and always were complicated by recurrence of the disease with its further development. No more. Today, any modalities of varicose vein treatment are minimally invasive, all are performed on an outpatient basis well within one hour, require no general anesthetics or lengthy recovery, minimally uncomfortable during their performance, provide permanent results (with no recurrence of the disease), safe and do not require restriction or limitation of typical life style during the post-procedure period.
Among the widest variety of therapeutic modalities available for treatment of venous diseases, the most commonly used ones are the following. First is, so-called, endovenous catheter-based obliteration, where endovenous LASER therapy and radiofrequency obliteration are currently being the most popular due to their excellent safety records and effectiveness. Second type includes sclerotherapy, during which closure of the veins is achieved by injections. Third treatment technique combines two of the above with the ClariVein® method being the most typical example. Finally, there is a group of semi-non-invasive techniques with phlebectomy and micro-phlebectomy being the most widespread ones. In majority of cases, more than one of the above modalities is required.
Choice of technique depends on several well-defined factors, derived from medical complaints and cosmetic considerations, results of physical examination and findings of diagnostic tests where indicated. A professional evaluation will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision. The evaluation is non-invasive and is conducted in the office, the same place where all the procedures are performed.
Results of treatment of varicose veins and of the condition responsible for their formation, superficial venous insufficiency, are permanent despite the common believe. Coincidentally, the fact that superficial venous insufficiency is not only treatable, but also curable condition makes it unique among numerous treatable, but not curable diseases, such as hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes and many others.
