Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Approximately 40% of women, and 25% of men, suffer from varicose veins. Varicose veins appear as twisting, rope-like cords of bulging veins under the skin, most often appearing on the legs. Some of the most common symptoms of varicose veins include leg heaviness, aching, swelling, fatigue, itching, tingling, or tenderness.
Fortunately, patients with varicose veins have access to several safe and effective treatments. In many cases, varicose vein treatment is performed right in the office with minimally invasive therapies. Some of the best vein treatments available today are endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy, including ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. Patients with minor cases of varicose or spider veins may see results using conservative treatment, such as compression stockings or making healthy lifestyle changes like being more physically active.
