Treatment Options for Varicose Veins

Painful varicose veins Varicose veins are more common than you might think. They can be painful and unsightly and leave you feeling like you should be covering your legs throughout the year. By exploring the different treatment options for varicose veins with Midatlantic Vascular & Interventional, you can finally say goodbye to the veins.

Why Varicose Veins Should Be Treated

Whether you have had varicose veins for years or just noticed that they have appeared, it is important to explore treatment. Simply allowing them to go untreated can cause them to get bigger and more painful.

Some complications can arise with varicose veins because blood is backing up inside them. It can cause swelling, skin discoloration, and even leg ulcers.

With treatment, it is possible to eliminate the potential for complications while also improving the look and discomfort that you’re currently experiencing.

Explore the Treatment Options

There are a few different treatment options available for varicose veins depending on the size and what complications may already be present. Newer procedures, like for example, endovenous thermal ablation, can offer effective and minimally invasive solutions to treat varicose veins.

Most of the treatments are done as an outpatient, allowing you to have minimal downtime, too. Often, a small catheter is used along with ultrasound waves. This helps to shut the varicose vein down.

An ultrasound can be performed to determine if there are blood clots. From there, it may be necessary to explore sclerotherapy or laser therapy. If the case is a bit more severe, your doctor can also discuss the possibility of vein surgery.

Getting treatment early on is key to ensuring that your varicose veins do not progress to a severe case. However, if you have waited, understand that there are still treatment options available to you.
