What Are the Methods in the Process for Vein Treatment NYC If I Have Spider Veins and Venous Insufficiency?

Self-Evaluation

Tell-tale signs that you have a vein disease and should seek vein treatment NYC are spider veins and varicose veins bulging on your lower limbs, or aching and tired legs. Vein disease leads to heaviness or fatigue, especially towards the end of the day, because your blood tends to make its way down to the legs and build pressure.

Even if you have gotten used to aching and swelling in the feet or ankles, and itching or burning spider veins and varicose veins, you should still conduct a self-evaluation to think back on what your legs looked and felt like five or ten years ago. If your legs are noticeably more tired or achy at the end of the day than they used to be, then you should definitely explore treatment options with a vein doctor at a vein treatment center. Many people assume that these signs and symptoms are simply normal aspects of the aging process, but venous insufficiency and spider veins can and should be treated at a vein clinic!

Evaluation at a Vein Center

At a vein center, the vein doctor will check both your large and small saphenous veins for valve damage or blockages, which can cause venous reflux or venous insufficiency. This is a condition in which blood flows in the wrong direction and does not sufficiently travel to all parts of the body. After the initial check-up, the vein doctor will screen for symptoms that may not have been originally reported so that insurance will cover the doctor-recommended treatment costs.

What is the process for vein treatment NYC if I have spider veins and venous insufficiency? We walk you through all of the steps from when you first identify spider veins or varicose veins, until you undergo treatment from a vein doctor.

Treating the Root Cause – Saphenous Veins

The first step of most vein disease treatment plans is closing down saphenous veins that feed all other veins. In the past, varicose and spider vein treatment was exclusively surgical, but medical innovation now allows us to treat varicose veins and spider veins through minimally-invasive treatments. These procedures only require a small incision rather than a large surgical opening, which often means that minimally-invasive procedures are associated with lower risks, shorter procedural time, and less recovery time after your visit to the vein clinic. There are a variety of options for vein treatment NYC, including VenaSeal, Radiofrequency Ablation, and Varithena.

VenaSeal is a vein adhesive used to close the saphenous vein in the leg that causes varicose veins, and doesn’t require any injection of local anesthetic. Once it is applied to the vein, the VenaSeal glue acts almost instantaneously to seal the diseased vein, which will eventually reroute the blood automatically through the healthy veins in your legs.

Radiofrequency ablation is another non-surgical minimally invasive treatment that starts with the administration of a local anesthetic, followed by the insertion of a catheter into the unhealthy vein using an ultrasound. Once the numbing solution is delivered to the length of the vein, the catheter is activated and thermal energy is delivered to the walls of the vein to close them down.

Varithena is a pre-made sclerotherapy foam and is injected into the vein to reduce the appearance and symptoms of varicose veins.
