The Main Methods of Treating Spider Veins

You would be surprised by how many women, and even some men, are bothered and affected by the growth of visible veins. Spider veins seem to be the most unappealing. Patients come to our office of Restoration Vein Care, the professional vein treatment center, from all across the Milford, Saline, and surrounding areas to let us safely treat them in a productive way. There are several methods you can try, and our vein treatment center offers insight into every method to fit the particular individual.

Following Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins are treated with a methodology called sclerotherapy. The technique involves injecting a small amount of solution into the tiny varicose blood vessels. It destroys the lining of the blood vessels so they are unable to carry blood. The body will then grow scar tissue over these portions that were damaged. While this sounds unpleasant, it is not in fact damaging in any practical sense. The goal is to clear spider veins and build a healthier blood and vein ecosystem in your body. The spider veins will no longer be visible, although it may take up to twelve months to accomplish the full results. The practice is also very safe, and very few patients report pain after two to three days. The pain is a mild ache, and prescribed pain medicine may not even be particularly necessary. This is the leading method of treating spider veins.

Radio-Frequency Sealing (also known as Catheter Vein Ablation

The physicians at Restoration Vein Care perform the Venefit™ radio-frequency ablation procedure. The Venefit™ procedure is the only minimally invasive segmental radio-frequency (RF) ablation treatment that utilizes radio-frequency energy to provide an even and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and seal. Once a leg vein is closed, blood flow is redirected to healthy veins.

The Venefit™ procedure allows for a quick, comfortable recovery and a return to everyday activities, while also improving the appearance of varicose veins.
