Varicose and Spider Veins

Treatment for Varicose and Spider Veins

Varicose and spider veins are common conditions affecting millions worldwide. While they share similarities, including their appearance and underlying causes, their impact on individuals’ lives can range from cosmetic concerns to serious health issues. Our clinic specializes in the latest treatments and technologies to provide practical, minimally invasive solutions for varicose and spider veins, ensuring our patients can lead healthier, more confident lives.

Understanding Varicose and Spider Veins

Varicose veins are large, swollen ones often appearing on the legs and feet, caused by weakened or damaged vein walls and valves. Spider veins, while similar, are smaller and found closer to the skin’s surface, often appearing on the legs and face with a web-like pattern.

Causes and Symptoms

The primary cause of both conditions is venous insufficiency, where veins struggle to send blood back to the heart, leading to blood pooling. Factors include genetics, age, hormonal changes, obesity, and prolonged periods of standing or sitting. Symptoms range from aching pain, heaviness, itching, and swelling for varicose veins to cosmetic concerns for spider veins.

Available Treatments

Our clinic offers a range of treatments tailored to each patient’s specific needs, from conservative methods like compression stockings and lifestyle changes to advanced procedures, including:

  • Sclerotherapy: A minimally invasive treatment where a solution is injected into the vein, causing it to collapse and fade.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): Involves heating the vein wall using radiofrequency energy, causing it to collapse and seal shut.
  • VenaSeal™: A medical adhesive is used to close the vein.
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy: Small varicose veins are removed through tiny skin punctures.

Choosing the Right Treatment

Deciding on the best treatment depends on various factors, including the type and severity of the vein condition, the patient’s overall health, and personal preferences. Our specialists are committed to working closely with each patient to determine the most effective treatment plan tailored to their unique needs.
