Step 3: Minimally invasive vein treatments to address the underlying vein disease.
If your bulging veins are caused by underlying venous insufficiency, our board-certified vein doctor will start with minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. During these procedures, our vein doctor will channel thermal energy (radiofrequency ablation), laser energy (endovenous laser ablation), or medical-grade adhesives (VenaSeal) into the diseased saphenous vein, under ultrasound guidance.
All of these minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have the same underlying goal — closing or collapsing the diseased saphenous vein. However, they go about it with different methods. Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation involve thermal and laser energy to collapse the diseased vein. VenaSeal is the injection of a vein glue to seal the vein closed.
Once the diseased saphenous vein is closed, the accumulated blood automatically flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation. The diseased vein hardens and gets absorbed by the body. The entire procedure is pain-free, comfortable, and concludes within an hour in the vein doctor’s office. However, minimally invasive varicose vein treatments don’t necessarily remove the unsightly varicose veins visible on your skin.
Step 4: Minimally invasive vein treatments to remove the visible unsightly varicose veins and spider veins.
You may still have unsightly varicose veins and spider veins on your skin after the primary vein treatments. The unsightly varicose veins are rendered harmless without underlying venous insufficiency. However, our vein doctor may recommend ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy to remove the bulging veins from the skin’s surface.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein doctor removes the diseased varicose veins through incisions on the skin’s surface. Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the vein doctor injects a medicine into the spider veins, hardening them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed.
Ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy are minimally invasive cosmetic procedures because they only remove the superficial veins. As such, they’re not eligible for insurance coverage. However, the procedures are just as pain-free, comfortable, and short as the other minimally invasive varicose vein treatments.
