VARICOSE AND SPIDER VEIN TREATMENT
The standard treatment for small varicose and spider veins. A sclerosing solution is injected into the vein. The vein becomes irritated, collapses and is gradually absorbed by the body. It is very common for the vein to appear darker and more visible immediately after the injection session. Compression hose-Prescription-strength compression stockings will enhance the results of treatment and reduce potential side effects. This process causes a gradual fading of the treated vessel over a period of several weeks to several months. The legs, ankles, and feet small varicose veins and spider veins are usual treatment locations.
Minimally invasive and with no surgical vein stripping, avoiding general anesthesia, sedation and incisions. Varithena does not require multiple injections to numb the treatment site, unlike most thermal procedures, and doesn’t leave permanent foreign bodies behind after treatment.
A minimally invasive alternative to vein stripping for the treatment of symptomatic varicose veins and its common underlying cause, venous reflux. Instead of surgically removing the diseased vein, called stripping, the Closure procedure delivers heat through radio frequency (RF) energy via a catheter in the abnormal vein. This destroys the lining of the vein and causes the collagen in the wall of the vein to shrink and result in closure of the vein.
Another minimally invasive treatment of symptomatic varicose veins and venous reflux, VenaSeal is a medical grade adhesive administered using ultrasound guidance to close off the abnormal veins, often the source of large branch varicose veins patients see on the surface of their legs.
