An advanced treatment (used mostly for larger varicose veins) that harnesses heat energy to shut down the diseased vein.
Is the removal of large unsightly varicose veins at the surface of the skin. The area surrounding the varicose vein clusters is flooded with anesthetic fluid. A needle is then used to make a puncture next to the varicose vein and a small hook is inserted for removal of the diseased vein. The punctures typically leave very minimal scarring.
At St. Johns Vein Center, sclerotherapy vein treatments come in 3 forms: Ultrasound, Liquid, and Foam-Visual sclerotherapy refers to injection of surface veins that are visible to the naked eye. Some veins that need to be treated are below the surface of the skin and cannot be injected safely without the aid of ultrasound imaging assistance. The majority of sclerotherapy techniques use a liquid formulation unless the vein is unresponsive in which case they would use the foam alternative.
The VenaSeal™ closure system is the first and only treatment approved for use in the U.S. that uses an advanced medical adhesive to safely and effectively close the diseased vein segment. Tumescent anesthesia is not required. Unlike other varicose vein treatments, there is rapid return to normal activities.
The injection of a chemical irritant into a vein. The chemical irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to swell and the blood to clot. The vein turns into scar tissue that fades from view causing the blood flow to shift into nearby healthy veins.
