What is the Latest Treatment for Varicose Veins? And Other Varicose Vein Treatment FAQs

What is the latest treatment for varicose veins?

Varicose veins are dense blood vessels that bulge out of the skin’s surface, looking like a mass of twisted, tangled, and knotted ropes or branches. They’re usually caused by chronic venous insufficiency, a circulatory disorder wherein the collapse of vein valves leads to the accumulation of blood in leg veins. Treating varicose veins without addressing the root cause is pointless because the varicose veins will simply return. That’s why the most effective varicose vein treatments involve addressing the diseased saphenous vein, following which the superficial varicose veins are treated or removed.

In the past, vein disease and varicose veins could only be treated using complex surgical procedures, such as vein ligation, vein stripping, and venous bypass surgery. Varicose vein surgeries are complex procedures that involve hospitalization, general anesthesia, extended downtime of several weeks, and a high risk of complications. Thanks to recent advancements in vein care, we can treat the root cause of varicose veins and remove the superficial varicose veins using minimally invasive procedures that conclude within an hour and involve no downtime. You should only consult vein doctors willing to provide minimally invasive vein treatments.

Our medical centers for vein treatment in New York City specialize in minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments. Our board-certified vein doctors have specialized training and education in the latest and safety ultrasound-guided minimally invasive procedures, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and venaseal. Our vein doctors carefully diagnose the root cause of your vein problems and curate personalized vein treatment plans for your specific needs and goals. Our considered approach to vein care helps us maintain a perfect track record. Please schedule an appointment to explore your vein treatment options.

Below, we provide a description of the latest treatments for varicose veins.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation involves channeling thermal energy into the diseased saphenous vein via a catheter. Radiofrequency energy destroys the diseased vein, and the accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins, restoring optimal blood circulation to the heart. This is the best minimally invasive treatment for chronic venous insufficiency.

Laser Ablation

Laser ablation involves channeling laser energy into the diseased saphenous vein via a laser fiber. Laser energy ablates the diseased saphenous vein, and the accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins, restoring optimal blood circulation to the heart. This is one of the best minimally invasive procedures for chronic venous insufficiency.

ClariVein

ClariVein is a specialized treatment for extremely large and tortuous varicose veins. The vein doctor inserts a specialized catheter with a rotating wire tip into the diseased varicose veins. The catheter, when activated, damages the varicose veins’ walls while delivering a sclerosant medicine, turning the varicose veins into scar tissues metabolized by the body.

VenaSeal

VenaSeal is one of the latest treatments for varicose veins, having received FDA approval in 2015. The vein doctor injects a medical-grade adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein to seal its walls shut, turning it into a hardened tissue eventually metabolized by the body.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Foam sclerotherapy involves injecting a foamy solution of sclerosant medications into varicose veins to irritate their vein walls. The varicose veins turn into hardened scar tissues eventually metabolized by the body, and they eventually fade away from the skin’s surface.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy involves the manual extraction of superficial varicose veins from the skin’s surface via small incisions. This procedure instantly removes all the unhealthy varicose veins. The incision marks gradually heal and fade away from the skin’s surface.

What is the best non-surgical treatment for varicose veins?

Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are two of the best non-surgical treatments for varicose veins. These minimally invasive procedures use radiofrequency energy or laser energy to ablate (destroy) the diseased saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems, so they treat the root cause of varicose veins — not just the symptoms. As such, radiofrequency and laser ablation ensure optimal and long-lasting results.

What is the safest treatment for varicose veins?

Radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal are equally safe treatments for varicose veins. All of these minimally invasive procedures have nearly perfect (97%) success rates and negligible risk of complications or harsh side effects. Furthermore, our vein doctors use cutting-edge techniques to perform minimally invasive vein treatments, ensuring safe results without complications.

Is it worth getting varicose veins removed?

Yes, if you have varicose veins, you must contact reliable vein doctors to explore your vein treatment options. As mentioned previously, varicose veins aren’t merely cosmetic problems — they’re usually indicative of underlying chronic venous insufficiency. If you don’t seek vein treatment promptly, you may eventually experience the complications of untreated vein disease, such as leg ulcers, deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins), and other problems. That’s why you must get your varicose veins removed.

Do varicose veins come back after laser treatment?

Endovenous laser treatment addresses the root cause of varicose veins — chronic venous insufficiency. The vein doctor uses laser energy to destroy the saphenous vein responsible for your vein problems, thus rerouting blood into healthier leg veins. After endovenous laser treatment, the vein doctor can perform foam sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy to remove the superficial varicose veins and prevent them from reappearing. Laser treatment certainly minimizes the risk of vein disease recurrence.

How much does it cost to get rid of varicose veins?

The specific cost of varicose vein treatment depends on numerous factors, such as the size and location of varicose veins, whether you have underlying vein disease, the chosen vein treatment plan, and more. Most people with varicose veins can get insurance coverage for their treatments. Our medical centers for vein treatment in New York City provide free insurance verification for all patients.
