Many people are also distressed by the appearance of their legs when they have vascular issues.
Varicose veins are a very common vascular issue, so many people wonder how they can stop them from forming or at least prevent them from worsening. Randall Pain Management recommends lifestyle changes such as:
These steps can often help you avoid developing varicose veins and may keep smaller varicose veins from growing much larger. But, if you have persistent issues like leg pain, itching, and heaviness after trying lifestyle changes, you might need vein treatment.
Vein treatment generally includes lifestyle modifications and, if those aren’t successful on their own, vein treatments in the Randall Pain Management office.
Treatments are mainly nonsurgical and take less than an hour. These innovative vein treatments feature less pain, little-to-no scarring, minimal bruising, less bleeding, and a shorter recovery period than with vein ligation and stripping.
Varithena is an injectable microfoam that fills diseased varicose veins, which blocks blood movement and forces their collapse. Treatment requires as few as one or two needle sticks and takes less than an hour. Most people need just one treatment session to get great results.
Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) is a minimally invasive procedure that closes unsightly varicose veins using laser energy. It’s a highly effective procedure with a remarkable 98% success rate.
Endovenous radiofrequency ablation uses a tiny electrode to heat and close varicose veins. This procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia.
Sclerotherapy collapses varicose and spider veins by injecting a solvent. Sclerotherapy has been used since the 1930s with great success. Microsclerotherapy addresses smaller veins.
Other options, like endoscopic vein surgery, are also available.
