How many times have you – unsuccessfully – tried using worthless or even potentially dangerous home or over-the-counter remedies to treat varicose veins? While those may seem like good options, they’re all too often unreliable and ineffective leaving you with your unsightly veins, a waste of time and waste of money. There are, however, a number of proven methods for removing varicose veins. Treatment is as simple as visiting an established vein treatment center, like Shore Vascular & Vein Center.
Depending on the vascular condition you’re looking to have remedied, the treatments available at Shore Vascular & Vein Center, serving Atlantic County, Cape May County and Ocean County, NJ, provide proven solutions to your condition. Some of the most common of these safe and effective treatments include the Excel V Laser, sclerotherapy, conservative therapy, microphlebectomy and the Venefit procedure (or VNUS closure).
EXCEL V LASER SYSTEM
As its name implies, the Excel V Laser system, heats the abnormal veins with a high-powered laser to eliminate the unsightly veins. The laser itself is customizable to every patient’s skin tone and problem. This system also treats many other common conditions such as rosacea, telangiectasia (permanent dilated veins), port wine stain, cherry angioma, small leg veins, and certain skin discoloration issues. Not only is it effective in treating veins on the legs, but it is also extremely effective in treating unsightly veins on face, such as around the nose and cheeks, and other places on the body.
Sclerotherapy, which is a treatment commonly used in getting rid of spider veins, addresses the venous insufficiency by using a very small needle to inject a sclerosing agent into the troublesome area. Unlike older sclerosing agents, the new medications, such as Asclera, have eliminated the burning sensation that was once associated with the treatment. Sclerosing agents eliminate the unsightly veins by irritating the inside of the offending veins, causing them to collapse on themselves. When this happens, the appearance of the spider veins improves and any of the discomfort associated with them, such as light burning or itching often goes away as well.
In certain circumstances, a phlebectomy may be the best treatment to get rid of varicose veins. A phlebectomy, sometimes referred to as a microphlebectomy, is a procedure during which a vein is removed from the patient. Unlike more invasvie surgical procedures, a microphlebectomy does not require large incisions or the patient being put under general anesthesia. Instead, a tiny vascular hook is inserted through a needle opening near a varicose vein. The hook then allows the vein to be carefully removed through the tiny skin opening, completely eliminating the varicose vein.
The Venefit procedure treats the underlying cause of many varicose veins. It is the modern day alternative to the old-fashioned vein stripping. It is a minimally invasive office procedure that eliminates venous reflux by treating the affected vein with radiofrequency (RF) energy. The procedure usually takes only about 20 minutes to complete. There are no incisions or stitches required. Recovery is fast, with minimal “down time.” Patients are instructed to walk on the treated leg immediately after treatment.
