For mild cases of venous insufficiency, there are some at-home treatments, such as elevating the legs to reduce pressure, wearing compression stockings to increase blood flow, and regular exercise. Treatments for more severe vein disease and venous insufficiency include the following.
Sclerotherapy is a widely used medical procedure for the removal of spider veins. It involves the injection of a sclerosant solution into a vein to completely obliterate it. This technique is considered one of the most effective methods for treating spider veins.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is the current standard for treating venous insufficiency. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that involves using a small catheter to deliver heat energy to close down the abnormal vein and can be performed directly in the office.
Using a unique adhesive to close off damaged veins, VenaSeal™ is a safe and equally effective procedure compared to RF ablation.
ClariVein treats underlying venous insufficiency using a small catheter. The process treats the diseased vein both chemically and mechanically.
One of the best treatment options for bulging varicose veins is a brief procedure exclusively offered by skilled vein clinics known as microphlebectomy. The procedure is done under local anesthesia in an office setting, and the vein is removed in small sections through tiny incisions.
