Vein Treatments In Brooklyn & Elmhurst, Queens, NY

There are a variety of issues that you may deal with when it comes to vein diseases and issues, and it’s important to know that you aren’t alone and that there are a variety of treatments that you can choose from. The most common vein diseases are spider veins and varicose veins, and while neither is normally painful, they can affect your self-confidence and make it uncomfortable for you to show off your legs in public. In some cases, varicose veins could cause aches and discomfort, which will need treatment in order to ease that pain.

Treating Vein Diseases

Varicose veins and spider veins can occur in anyone and while they normally aren’t a sign of anything severe, there are cases that can lead to more serious problems like skin ulcers and blood clots. Because of this, it’s important to talk to your doctor about treating your varicose veins and making sure that they don’t lead to further issues.

There are two main techniques that treatments can fall under. One is thermal ablation treatments and the other is non-thermal treatments. Thermal ablation treatments use forms of heat, cold, microwave, and electrical currents to target veins and help reduce their size. Non-thermal uses other methods to help shrink veins and create a more aesthetic look.

Types of thermal ablation vein treatments available include:

  • Endovenous laser vein therapy
  • Radiofrequency vein closure

Types of non-thermal vein treatments include:

  • Sclerotherapy
  • Microphlebectomy vein treatment
  • Endovenous foam sclerotherapy
  • ClariVein

The type of treatment used will depend on your lifestyle and the severity of your varicose or spider veins.
