Leg Vein Removal Q & A

Leg Vein Removal Q & A

How can a doctor remove my varicose veins and spider veins?

At AVLC, Dr. Heird and Dr. Winand use a variety of techniques to remove your unwanted spider veins and varicose veins.

Ambulatory phlebectomy:

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure where your doctor removes spider veins through small incisions in your skin. The doctor uses a local anesthetic to numb the area before making the cuts and removing your unwanted spider veins in segments.

Endovenous radiofrequency ablation:

Endovenous radiofrequency ablation is another minimally invasive, outpatient procedure to treat varicose veins. Your doctor makes an incision in your leg and feeds a catheter through your vein until it reaches the damaged part of your vein. He then releases the radiofrequency energy, which heats and seals your damaged vein.

Sclerotherapy:

Sclerotherapy is an injectable treatment for spider veins and small varicose veins. Your doctor injects a foaming chemical known as a sclerosant into your damaged veins. The solution irritates your vein, causing it to collapse on itself and seal closed.

Surgical removal:

Some varicose veins are too large or twisted for minimally invasive treatments. In these cases, Dr. Heird and Dr. Winand can use surgical techniques to remove your veins. Surgical vein removal is usually an outpatient procedure.

Why should I have my varicose veins removed?

In addition to the cosmetic benefits of vein removal, having a vascular expert like Dr. Heird or Dr. Winand remove varicose veins also improves your vascular health and reduces venous insufficiency symptoms like leg cramps, numbness, and fatigue.

How should I take care of my legs after vein removal?

Dr. Winand and Dr. Heird provide customized instructions on how to take care of your legs and vascular health following your vein removal treatments. In most cases, you need to wear compression stockings for two weeks or more.

Your doctor also has you get up and walk around within hours of your treatment and then several times a day as you recover. Walking promotes healthy circulation and encourages your blood to follow more efficient routes back to your heart.

If you’re fed up with the appearance of your varicose veins and the troublesome symptoms of venous insufficiency, call Advanced Vein & Laser Center or schedule a consultation online to learn about your vein removal options.
