Venous Duplex Imaging
Duplex scanning of veins utilizes ultrasound to visualize a vein to determine the exact anatomy, direction of blood flow within a vein and to assess for abnormal valves. With this improved ultrasound technology the physician is better able to diagnose underlying problems and prescribe a treatment plan tailored to a patient’s individual needs. This is important to achieve the best long-term cosmetic and therapeutic results. The registered vascular technologists have been specifically trained by our vascular surgeons. The test is non-invasive, no preparation is needed and it takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Venous duplex scanning is typically a covered expense by most insurance companies.
Sclerotherapy is an injection treatment used to eliminate “spider” veins and small to medium-size varicose veins. A solution is injected into the problem vein with a very fine needle. The vein wall becomes irritated. Subsequent application of external compression with dressings and prescription-gradient compression hose seals the vein wall together. The body breaks down the damaged vein and absorbs it, ultimately eliminating the problem vein. No pre-treatment patient preparation is needed and most patients describe minimal discomfort. After treatment patients resume normal activities, but are asked to avoid prolonged sitting and standing for 3 days and heavy exercise (weight lifting, running and high impact aerobics) for two weeks. Walking is encouraged after the treatments. Prescription-gradient compression hose are worn for 9 days after each treatment.
Laser / Light Therapy
VeinSolutions currently utilizes laser/light therapy source. Laser light sources are the latest technologies in the treatment of “spider” veins, facial flushing and vascular birthmarks. This improved technology is effective in eliminating problem vascular lesions without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser/light therapy may be an appropriate option for treatment of “spider” veins involving the face, trunk and legs and vascular birthmarks such as hemangiomas and port-wine stains. Laser/light therapy is most effective when treating people with a “fair” complexion. Successful treatment of facial lesions may be accomplished with as little as one treatment but usually requires two to three treatments. Leg veins usually require multiple treatments. The number of treatments needed to successfully treat vascular birthmarks varies depending on their size and density but usually requires multiple treatments. The treatment is tolerated by most people with minimal discomfort. Moderate to significant redness and swelling of the area treated is expected and usually resolves in 3 to 10 days depending on the amount of swelling and redness. Patient preparation requires the area being treated be without sun exposure or the use of sunless tanning products for four weeks before and after each treatment. Make-up may be applied after facial redness and swelling has subsided. Prescription-gradient compression hose may be necessary for 48 hours after treatment of leg veins.
Minimally Invasive Treatment (MIVA)
Minimally invasive vein surgery is the treatment of choice for larger varicose veins to achieve both the desired cosmetic results and to relieve symptoms such as aching, swelling and pain caused by leg varicosities. Our vascular surgeons are experienced and skilled with venous anatomy and strive to constantly update their surgical expertise. Today’s surgical techniques for varicose veins require minimal incisions and are performed on an outpatient basis with average recovery time of one week or less. Meticulous effort is made to achieve optimal cosmetic and therapeutic results.
Radio Frequency VNUS Closure Treatment
The VNUS Closure procedure is offered for treating larger varicose veins and is indicated for those patients who meet certain medical guidelines. The Closure procedure is performed on an outpatient basis by using radiofrequency (RF) energy applied to the inside vein walls of the damaged vessel. As the RF energy is delivered and the catheter is withdrawn through the damaged vein, the vein wall heats up causing the wall to shrink and the vein to close. Patients who undergo the Closure procedure often resume normal activities quickly with excellent cosmetic and therapeutic results. The procedure is covered by most insurance plans.
