Step 1: Initial Consultation & Diagnosis

The Spider Vein and Varicose Vein Center, LI, is widely considered the best vein center in Long Island. With offices conveniently located in Lindenhurst, Jericho, and Hampton Bays, the vein center is extremely accessible to patients from all corners of the island, including the south shore, north shore, and the Hamptons. If you have any of the signs or symptoms of vein disease, such as spider veins, varicose veins, leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, or other conditions, please contact your nearest Long Island vein center today.

The primary goal of the initial consultation is to determine if you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency. Most vein problems, including spider veins and varicose veins, are symptomatic of venous insufficiency, a circulatory disorder wherein the collapse of your vein valves makes blood accumulate in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood eventually leads to various complications, such as leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, deep vein thrombosis, leg ulcers, and more. As such, prompt vein treatment is crucial.

You can expect the following during your initial consultation and diagnosis:

  • Discussion of Symptoms: The vein doctor will ask you to describe your symptoms, such as leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, throbbing leg veins, frequent leg cramps, and other potential signs and symptoms of vein disease.
  • Visual Examination: The board-certified vein doctor will examine your leg veins and spider veins to identify other signs of vein disease, such as varicose veins, skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and skin changes.
  • Review of Medical History: The vein doctor will review your medical history and ask about your family’s medical history. Patients with a family history of vein disease or a personal history of blood clots in the veins are more likely to get vein disease.
  • Vascular Imaging Test: Finally, the board-certified vein specialist will use advanced vascular imaging tests, like duplex ultrasound, to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. This will reveal the underlying venous insufficiency (or lack thereof).

While scheduling an appointment at the best spider vein and varicose vein center in LI, you may wonder what you can expect. This article highlights the vein center’s vein treatment process.

Step 2: Treatment Plan

The spider vein and varicose vein specialist will curate a personalized treatment plan based on your specific goals and needs. Each vein treatment plan is curated according to your diagnostic results, symptoms, medical history, expectations, and insurance coverage options. The vein doctor will discuss your spider vein and varicose vein treatment options, highlighting the pros, cons, cost, and insurance coverage options of each plan. As such, they’ll collaboratively curate the ideal vein treatment plan for you.

Step 3: Primary Vein Treatment

The primary vein treatment is meant for patients with underlying chronic venous insufficiency. In this case, the vein doctor will use various minimally invasive procedures to destroy the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems. Once the diseased vein is destroyed, the accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins, restoring optimal blood circulation. The spider vein and varicose vein center in Long Island only provide minimally invasive procedures that conclude within an hour with no downtime or complications.

The following are your vein treatment options for the underlying chronic venous insufficiency.

  • Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation: The vein doctor makes a small incision on the skin’s surface to insert a catheter that delivers thermal energy to the diseased vein to destroy its walls.
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation: The vein doctor makes a small incision on the skin’s surface to insert a small catheter that delivers laser energy to the problematic vein to make it collapse.
  • VenaSeal: The vein doctor injects a medical-grade adhesive into the diseased vein to seal its walls, turning it into a hardened tissue eventually absorbed by the body.
  • Mechanochemical Ablation (ClariVein): The vein specialist inserts a catheter with a rotating tip into the diseased vein. When activated, the rotating tip irritates the vein walls while delivering a sclerosant solution to make the vein collapse.

Step 4: Cosmetic Vein Treatment

After the underlying chronic venous insufficiency is addressed, the spider vein and varicose vein doctor proceed with your cosmetic vein treatment. If you don’t have underlying vein disease, the vein specialist will immediately proceed to this stage. Cosmetic treatments only remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins to improve your legs’ appearance.

The following are your cosmetic vein treatment options for superficial varicose veins and spider veins.

  • Liquid Sclerotherapy: The vein doctor injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins to make their walls harden, shrink, and eventually get absorbed by the body.
  • Foam Sclerotherapy: The board-certified vein doctor injects a foamy form of sclerosant medication into the superficial varicose veins to make them harden, shrink, and fade away.

Step 5: Recovery & Aftercare

After your minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatment, the vein doctor will discuss your post-treatment recovery and aftercare guidelines. You may have to wear compression stockings for a few weeks, avoid heavy lifting for a few days, and exercise frequently. But you can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your vein treatment. As such, the spider vein and varicose vein center in Long Island ensures your vein treatment is simple and convenient.
