Vein Ablation & Sclerotherapy
Those long purple, blue, and red veins that decorate your legs are making you feel uncomfortable. It’s understandable. No one wants something like varicose veins when they live in Florida. The varicose veins are also getting to the point where your legs are burning and aching and they look larger than normal. If you’re experiencing discomfort or you feel self-conscious, then our varicose vein treatment can help you get back to living a normal life that’s pain-free.
What Is Endovenous Ablation Of Varicose Veins?
Endovenous ablation may sound like an intimidating treatment, but it’s actually minimally invasive. This form of treatment for varicose veins will use lasers and radiofrequency. The lasers or the radiofrequency will burn the veins closed, so they aren’t as enlarged and painful as they were previously. The doctor will use a medical tool called a catheter to put a small laser into the diseased vein. The heat from the treatment will become scarred so that it is closed off and will eliminate the pain you may be feeling. This type of treatment is a great way to treat those larger varicose veins because of the lasers that are used. If you have larger varicose veins, then the endovenous ablation is a great way to treat those unsightly veins.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is different than endovenous ablation. This type of treatment includes an injection of a special solution into the diseased veins. The special solution will scar them and seal them off, so the varicose veins are eliminated. Sclerotherapy will treat the blood vessels in your legs as well as the abnormalities of the blood vessels. The special solution medicine is injected into your veins to help them diminish in size. Once the veins have shrunk down, then the blood will begin to flow naturally again and it will go toward the healthy veins. The healthy, treated veins will disappear over time and you’ll notice that your legs return back to normal. This type of treatment is best for varicose veins that are small to medium in size.
