Our Unique Vein Treatment Process
Now that you’ve been introduced to the exceptional vein experts at our vein treatment clinics in Long Island, you might be curious about their vein treatment process. Our vein doctors follow a comprehensive and minimally invasive vein treatment process — they always diagnose the root cause of your spider veins and varicose veins, and they only provide in-office and outpatient procedures that are safe and effective. The following is a step-by-step overview of the vein treatment process.
Step 1: Initial Consultation + Diagnosis
Your vein treatment in Long Island starts with an initial consultation and diagnosis. The vein doctor examines your leg veins, discusses your symptoms, and reviews your medical history. After understanding your symptoms, the vein doctor administers an ultrasound diagnostic scan to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins, revealing the presence or absence of chronic venous insufficiency. Understanding if you have vein disease allows the vein doctor to curate a personalized vein treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your spider veins and varicose veins — not just the symptoms.
Step 2: Minimally Invasive Treatment
If you have chronic venous insufficiency, your vein treatment starts with radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or venaseal. These procedures involve using thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives — channeled via a catheter — to collapse or seal the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems. The accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins to restore optimal blood circulation to the heart. After the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor administers an ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins from your legs.
Step 3: Recovery + Aftercare
Minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments conclude within an hour with no downtime or harsh side effects. You may experience mild redness, swelling, and discomfort, but that can be managed with pain medications and ice packs. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts and heavy lifting. You should also wear compression stockings for a few days to minimize the risk of vein disease recurrence. The vein doctor will provide an overview of your recovery guidelines before allowing you to leave the vein treatment clinic in Long Island.
