The most conservative way to manage varicose vein disease is wearing prescription-strength compression stockings (usually knee length, but sometimes thigh length hose are needed). Compression stockings help alleviate the swelling and pain caused by varicose veins. These stockings will also help heal any skin inflammation or ulcerations which have developed.
The ClosureFast™ procedure is the medically proven, minimally-invasive treatment for people suffering from superficial venous reflux, which causes the pain, swelling and unsightliness of varicose veins. A thin catheter is inserted into the vein through a small opening. The catheter delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse, and seal shut.
Varicose veins occur when the one-way valves in the veins in the leg fail, allowing blood under pressure to flow the wrong way. The veins are not designed to cope with this increased pressure, so they enlarge and become prominent and more visible.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to eliminate varicose and spider veins. It involves the injection of a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the vessel wall lining causing the vein wall to swell and stick together eventually causing the vein to turn into microscopic scar tissue that fades over time.
