About Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose veins can cause a wide variety of issues, including leg pain, limited mobility, swelling, achiness, restlessness and heaviness in the legs. Many people also feel embarrassed to show their legs due to their varicose veins. Thankfully, a wide variety of treatments to alleviate the side effects of varicose veins are available that don’t involve surgery.
Varicose veins develop when the valves that keep blood flowing smoothly through the veins begin to weaken, causing blood to pool in certain areas and enlarging the veins, which then causes them to bulge outward. One popular treatment is called the Medtronic procedure, which works entirely in the vein and requires no anesthesia, no stitches or staples. Another effective treatment that is frequently covered by insurance is ClosureFast, which utilizes radiofrequency ablation to treat a variety of different vein issues.
What to Expect During Varicose Vein Treatment
Our trained professionals will schedule a consultation with you to determine if you are a good candidate for either of the treatments for varicose veins. In most cases, either treatment option is available to patients as they are virtually pain-free, require no hospitalization and you can return to normal everyday activities right away. While you might desire to take care of the varicose veins solely for aesthetic purposes, these treatments are great options if you are experiencing pain that is limiting your ability to perform normal day-to-day tasks. Our doctors will conduct a screening to determine your eligibility, review the entire procedure with you and answer all of your questions.
Benefits and Risks of Varicose Vein Treatment
Undertaking either of these treatments can cause a significant reduction in pain and bulge caused by varicose veins. You may also feel more comfortable showing off your bare legs. There is very little risk to either procedure because they are largely non-invasive and require no anesthesia.
