Common Treatment Options for Varicose Veins
The commonly used treatment options for varicose veins include; compression therapy, thermal ablation, sclerotherapy, phlebectomy and high ligation and stripping. It is important to familiarize yourself with these treatment types and then discuss the best option with your doctor. Most experts in the field of venous disease consider thermal ablation to be the safest, simplest, and most effective treatment type in producing the best long-term results when treating GSV or SSV problems.
Spider Vein Treatment Options
The treatment of spider veins has greatly improved in the last ten years. Several different treatment types are used to treat spider veins: sclerotherapy, laser, ohmic thermolysis, and intense pulse light (IPL). Most patients require a combination of treatments for the best result. Many times your doctor will perform an ultrasound to rule out underlying causes of spider veins.
Follow-Up After Treatment
With any medical procedure, it is always important to schedule the recommended follow up visits with your doctor. Follow up visits are key in determining whether the procedure has produced the desired medical and cosmetic results. Remember that veins can reoccur years after the procedure through new channels and for this reason follow up is essential.
