Varicose Vein Treatment

Professional Care for Problematic Veins in Houston

Varicose veins may be a common occurrence, but this doesn’t mean you have to live with the uncomfortable symptoms they cause. In fact, the symptoms associated with varicose veins, such as swelling, itching, burning, leg heaviness and fatigue, are actually signs of an underlying chronic venous disease for which treatment is available. At Premier Vein & Vascular Center, we offer several varicose vein treatment options in Houston, allowing you to choose the solution that best meets your needs to eliminate both the cosmetic concerns and discomfort associated with varicose veins and venous insufficiency. male varicose veins

Conservative versus Interventional Varicose Vein Treatment Options

There are numerous treatment options available to treat varicose veins, ranging from conservative solutions designed to minimize symptoms to interventional treatments that physically eliminate or remove the problematic vein. In many cases, conservative therapies are exhausted first before medical intervention is attempted.

  • Conservative treatments for varicose veins are aimed at improving quality of life by eliminating the symptoms and causes of varicose veins. These treatments include over-the-counter pain relief medications, homeopathic remedies, and medical-grade compression stockings, as well as lifestyle changes such as weight loss and exercise.
  • If conservative treatments fail to address your symptoms adequately, interventional treatments will be pursued. These treatments are minimally invasive and include endovenous thermal ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy.

A Closer Look at Interventional Varicose Veins Treatment

Interventional vein treatment aims to eliminate the cause of your varicose veins symptoms by treating the vein directly. You can speak with a vein specialist serving Houston about your treatment options for chronic venous insufficiency by calling Premier Vein & Vascular Center today at (832) 321-5355.

  • Endovenous thermal ablation is a procedure during which a thin, flexible tube, called a catheter, is inserted into the diseased vein. As the catheter is withdrawn, an instrument at the end uses radiofrequency energy (heat) to seal the vein shut. The body will naturally reroute blood though different veins, while the sealed vein will slowly shrink until it is reabsorbed.
  • Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that removes the damaged portion of the vein via several small incisions. This treatment can be performed under local anesthesia and does not require stitches due to the small incision size. Patients typically wear compression stockings for a short time after the procedure to improve circulation.
  • Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a specialized chemical solution into the problematic varicose vein. These chemicals cause irritation to the vein walls that cause scarring. Eventually the vein will close off and the body will reabsorb it, eliminating both the cosmetic appearance and the symptoms associated with the problematic vein. Several sclerotherapy sessions may be required to treat large or multiple veins, often spaced four to six weeks apart.
