Are you suffering from varicose or spider veins? For some people, these vein conditions can cause pain and discomfort and even lead to more severe issues. Even if your varicose or spider veins are just a cosmetic issue, removing them can help you restore beauty to your legs and feet and regain your confidence. If you are thinking about getting your varicose or spider veins treated, consider one of these leading minimally invasive procedures:
Endovenous Laser Therapy
Endovenous laser therapy is a top laser treatment in NYC that is used to treat varicose veins and venous insufficiency. During the procedure, the diseased vein is sealed shut from the inside using laser energy. Using ultrasound guidance, the surgeon passes a laser fiber through a thin tube that delivers a microscopic thermal trauma to destroy the damaged vein. The ultrasound guidance ensures the complete eradication of the diseased vein, which is crucial in preventing reoccurrence.
Whereas Endovenous Laser Therapy uses laser energy, Radiofrequency Ablation uses radiofrequency energy to seal and destroy varicose veins. Using high frequency currents, thermal trauma is applied to the inside lining of the diseased vein. The heat causes the collagen fibers inside the venous wall to diminish, leading to the complete closure of the vein.
Sclerotherapy can be used to treat various types of abnormal veins, but it is most commonly used for treating spider veins and reticular veins. The procedure involves the injection of a special pharmaceutical agent called sclerosant directly into the unhealthy vein to seal and eliminate it. Then the blood naturally reroutes to a healthy vein, and the destroyed vein fades away.
