Varicose Veins And What To Do About Them
The technology for reducing varicose veins and spider veins has greatly advanced over the past decade, and this gives individuals who do suffer from varicose veins a number of options for treatment.
- Sclerotherapy – this is an injection based outpatient treatment that uses chemicals to tighten the walls of the blood vessels.
- EVLA – the term stands for Endovenous Laser Ablation, and is a minimally invasive surgery where a flexible laser is inserted into the vein in order to cauterize any bleeding and to tighten the girth of the vessels.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy – this is also a minimally invasive surgery which uses a small incision to remove damaged parts of the vein in order to reduce the appearance of the varicosities.
Other techniques and diagnostics can also be appropriate for many patients, although treatment will always consider the full extent of the individual condition as well as any underlying health conditions that could also factor into treatment approaches. This practice can further inspire hope and confidence in many patients, since it reinforces the ability to take control over one’s life and make active decisions for betterment.
