Vein Care and Treatment
A non-invasive procedure to remove varicose vein branches by micro-extraction technique. Tiny incisions are made in the skin through which the remaining varicose veins are removed. The incisions are so small they do not require stitches, and often heal without scarring. It is performed as a second stage to the RFA treatment or when there are isolated varicose veins.
After the treatment, compression stockings can be worn to help healing and decrease swelling for the following two weeks. You may resume normal activity after the treatment but no strenuous or heavy lifting for up to two weeks. Mild soreness may last up to ten days. A follow-up ultrasound will be scheduled two weeks after treatment.
What are Spider Veins? Spider veins, which often cover the legs, are damaged veins that appear to be similar to varicose veins, only thinner. Appearing red or blue in color and like thin spider webs or branches, these veins are closer to the surface of the skin and can spread over a range of areas. Unlike varicose veins, spider veins are typically not raised above the skin’s surface.
Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure performed on superficial spider veins. Generally these veins are not problematic but unsightly in appearance. Therefore most of these procedures are done for cosmetic reasons. The treatment involves injecting a solution into the vein that causes the vein walls to swell, stick together and seal shut.
After the treatment, you will be able to drive and resume regular activities. There may be minimal pain, bruising, cramping and swelling for the first day after therapy. You will need to wear compression stockings and walk at least one hour a day for the following 2 weeks after treatment.
