Millions of people develop bulging varicose veins or sprawling spider veins at some point in their lives. Although some irregular veins cause bothersome symptoms, the biggest problem with most prominent veins is their conspicuous appearance — no one wants their skin to be marred by eye-catching or distorted-looking veins.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with unsightly varicose veins or spider veins that make you feel self-conscious: Advanced, minimally invasive cosmetic vein treatments can help you get rid of unwanted veins safely, quickly, and without surgery.
At Vascular Vein Centers, our board-certified experts offer a full scope of in-office treatment options for women and men in central Florida who want to banish unwanted varicose veins and spider veins. Read on to learn all about our medica and cosmetic vein removal solutions, and find out which option may be right for you.
Visual foam sclerotherapy
Visual sclerotherapy involves painlessly injecting a foam solution directly into an undesired vein, causing it to swell shut and collapse. As your blood reroutes itself into nearby healthy veins, the unused vein gradually fades from view as your body reabsorbs it.
Collapse and fade
Our team uses FDA-approved Varithena® microfoam to perform visual sclerotherapy. Most Varithena microfoam-treated veins fade significantly or disappear completely within a few weeks. This quick, minimally invasive treatment delivers effective results with little risk of side effects, no scarring, and zero downtime.
Foam sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice for small- to mid-sized leg varicose veins and conspicuous spider vein networks that are fully visible along the surface of your skin.
Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT)
This cosmetic vein treatment uses an ultra-thin catheter to deliver gentle pulses of laser heat directly into the walls of an unwanted vein, effectively collapsing it and sealing it shut. Done through a tiny incision and with the aid of a local anesthetic, this minimally invasive technique comes with virtually no down time — you can walk as soon as it’s done and return to work the following day.
Guided by ultrasound
EVLT uses ultrasound imaging to locate and visualize an unwanted varicose vein in its entirety, including the sections that twist inward and aren’t visible on the surface of your skin.
Ultrasound-guided EVLT is ideal for larger protruding varicosities and varicose veins that turn away from the surface of your skin and are partially hidden from view. Ultrasound imaging ensures the laser goes exactly where it should; it also helps ensure your blood redirects itself into healthy veins as the treatment takes effect.
Minimally invasive, maximally effective
Long gone are the days when surgery was the only option for unwanted veins. Today, several minimally invasive — and maximally effective — varicose vein and spider vein removal solutions are safe, painless, quick, and easy.
