If your legs ache, throb, cramp, swell, itch, feel restless, tired or heavy, or have rashes, ulcers, or clots, then it is probably a vein problem that can be fixed right in the office under local anesthesia. In the past decade, there have been extraordinary technological breakthroughs when it comes to the treatment of varicose veins. Men and women who are troubled by varicose veins can achieve relief with a variety of minimally invasive, non-hospital, and non-surgical options. These new, pain-free procedures have dramatically improved patients’ lives, providing optimal physical, emotional, and cosmetic health.
At New York Skin & Vein Centers, we offer several minimally-invasive procedures designed to treat symptomatic varicose veins on the thighs, legs, calves, and ankles.
Endovenous laser treatments is usually the first treatment required. Focused laser energy is sent directly to the underlying problem feeder vein closing off the abnormal blood flow. You will experience improved circulation as blood is redirected to normal veins. EVLT also gives you aesthetically-pleasing results.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a minimally-invasive procedure where bulging veins are pulled out through freckle-sized pokes in the skin. Results are immediate and long-lasting. The procedure can be done alongside EVLT to enhance the health benefits and cosmetic appearance of your unwanted varicose veins.
Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is often used for hard-to-treat or recurrent areas of varicose veins. Using an ultrasound to guide the treatment, an FDA-cleared solution is injected directly into the problem vein. The medication causes the vein to close in on itself allowing your body to naturally absorb problem veins. Dr. Dohner uses enhanced foam sclerotherapy for faster. more effective results.
