Treatments can involve one or a combination of the following:

 

bullet Sclerotherapy (Injection treatments) The most effective treatment for leg veins in the absence of deeper vein problems.

 

bullet Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy This treatment involves the use of a duplex ultrasound machine to guide sclerotherapy of abnormal varicose branch veins that cannot be seen on the surface of the skin. This may be required when surface veins are originating from these deeper veins.

 

bullet Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) This is a new office procedure designed to replace invasive surgical stripping when a patient has a more involved vein problem identified by ultrasound testing. EVLT involves the placement of a tiny laser fiber into the abnormal vein, and pulses of laser energy are used to close the vein down from the inside. This procedure is done in about an hour, requires no incisions, and is done using only local skin anesthesia. Patients can walk immediately after the procedure, and recovery time is minimal.

 

bullet Other Treatments: Surgical vein stripping, Phlebectomy. These are more invasive treatments that may be required in some patients with more involved vein problems.
