Does Varicose Vein Treatment Hurt?
No. Dr. Handley utilizes safe, effective minimally invasive treatment methods that will provide you with the results you want.
What Causes Varicose and Spider Veins?
Dr. Handley explains that the number one cause of varicose and spider veins are heredity. If these vein disorders run in your family history, consult with your doctor on the best ways for prevention. Other causes include hormonal factors such as puberty, pregnancy, menopause etc.
What are the Treatments for Varicose and Spider Veins?
At North Texas Vein and Vascular, Dr. Handley and his team of vein specialists practice Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). ELVT is a recent, innovative laser treatment technique that delivers laser energy directly inside the veins. Endovenous laser treatment is performed under local anesthesia in the doctor’s office. There is little to no scarring with a relatively short recovery period.
Dr. Handley also utilizes Sclerotherapy and Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy to get rid of spider and small varicose veins. This treatment method involves a pharmaceutical agent injection into the vein which will cause the vein wall to swell and become irritated and seal shut. Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy is essentially the same procedure except the pharmaceutical agent is foam rather than a liquid. Patients tend to see instant results; however, some patients see gradual progression changes.
