5-Step Vein Treatment Process
The Spider Vein and Varicose Vein Treatment Clinic, Texas, has a unique 5-step vein treatment process. Spider veins and varicose veins are dense clusters of blood vessels that appear on the skin’s surface. Since they affect the external appearance of the skin, most people assume they’re cosmetic problems. However, spider veins and varicose veins are actually indicative of underlying chronic venous insufficiency, a circulatory disorder wherein the collapse of vein valves leads to backward blood flow and the accumulation of blood in the leg veins. Our vein doctors always diagnose and treat the root cause of your vein problems before addressing the cosmetic problems.
Step 1: Diagnosis
During your initial consultation, the vein doctor will examine your leg veins, review your medical history, and discuss your symptoms. Please highlight all your symptoms, including leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, leg swelling, throbbing leg veins, and frequent leg cramps. These are common signs and symptoms of vein disease, but they’re often misattributed to signs of aging. The vein doctor will also perform duplex ultrasound, an advanced vascular imaging test that visualizes the direction of blood flow in your leg veins on a computer screen. This will conclusively reveal if you have chronic venous insufficiency.
Step 2: Treatment Plan
After diagnosing the root cause of your vein problems, the vein doctor will curate a personalized vein treatment plan for you. If you have underlying vein disease, the vein doctor will recommend treatments that destroy the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems. Treating spider veins without addressing the underlying problem is a wasted effort — the spider veins will eventually return. The vein doctor will discuss all your vein treatment options, including their pros, cons, and risks, and recommend the ideal vein treatments.
Step 3: Primary Vein Treatment
The primary vein treatment is meant for patients with chronic venous insufficiency. The best minimally invasive treatments for chronic venous insufficiency include radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and venaseal. These procedures use thermal energy, laser energy, or medical-grade adhesives to destroy the diseased vein or seal its walls shut, thereby rerouting the accumulated blood into healthier leg veins.
Step 4: Cosmetic Vein Treatment
The cosmetic vein treatment is meant for patients without underlying vein disease. If you have spider veins, the vein doctor will recommend sclerotherapy. The vein doctor will inject a sclerosant medicine into the spider veins, turning them into hardened scar tissues eventually absorbed by the body. If you have large varicose veins, the vein doctor will make small incisions on the skin’s surface to extract the varicose veins (ambulatory phlebectomy).
Step 5: Recovery & Aftercare
Minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments conclude within 30 to 60 minutes with no harsh side effects, complications, or downtime. The vein doctor will ask you to wear compression stockings for a few days and avoid heavy lifting. However, you can resume most of your daily activities and work the moment you leave the vein treatment clinic in Texas.
