Botox®Vein Removal

Vein Therapy Varicose vein removal treats vein dysfunction that results in bulging veins that allow for blood to pool and spread to other surrounding veins.  This is a result of weakened vein walls and valves which do not support the proper flow of blood.  The veins will then often become painful and can lead to other health complications if they are not treated.  With modern technology, there are a number of treatment options for those suffering from varicose veins.
Varicose Vein Removal Procedures
The VNUS Closure procedure treats not only the varicose vein itself, but also the cause of the dysfunction called venous reflux, with little or no pain at all.  The procedure involves the insertion of a catheter to seal the vein shut as it is slowly removed.  Most patients are able to walk right after the procedure, returning to work or regular activities within 24 hours.  Local anesthesia is required to ease any possible discomfort.
EVLT or endovenous laser treatment for varicose vein removal targets the lumen, or the tubal center structure of the blood vessel, shutting down the damaged area and forwarding the flow of blood to different veins in the leg.  This results in the vein wall being broken down and sealed off.

The Trivex System for varicose vein removal is a revolutionary and safe treatment option with nominal scarring.  Only a few weeks after treatment most patients that have suffered from painful and particularly stubborn vascular disorders are pain free.  A transilluminating light allows for the accurate location and removal of the vein with a small surgical tool.  Due to this lighting, the vein is easily identified and removed to assist with the healing process.  Thus, fewer incisions are necessary and varicose vein removal treatment time is minimal.

Alternative Treatments for Varicose Vein Removal
Alternative treatments for varicose vein removal include surgical ligation which involves stripping and removing the vein.  Surgical slits are made to access the vein and a vein specialist ties the problematic vein off and removes it.  General anesthesia is required for this procedure to prevent any discomfort.

Sclerotherapy for varicose vein removal involves an injection of a sodium chloride solution directly into the problematic vein.  This causes the vein wall to disintegrate and a compression hose is worn following the procedure to support the healing process.
