Graduated Compression Stockings

Some patients are treated with compression hosiery. Graduated compression implies that the stockings are snug around the ankle and less tight as it courses up the leg. This gradient of compression facilitates the normal, physiological flow of venous blood back up to the heart. The stockings can be used as primary therapy in some patients or to supplement other treatment options in selected patients. 

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy can be used to treat both varicose and spider veins. A tiny needle is used to inject the veins with one of several different kinds of solutions. Veins collapse, shrivel and seal shut. They are subsequently absorbed by the body. The number of sclerotherapy sessions will vary depending on the number, size and type of vein being treated. 

Cutaneous Laser

Sometimes, skin lasers are used to treat spider veins of the face, nose and neck. We have obtained good results with these treatments. A light beam creates heat inside treated veins that cause them to be sealed off and reabsorbed by the body. In selected cases, we have obtained excellent results with this method. These laser systems may also be used for hair removal. 

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a method of removing the varicose vein through a small incision next to the vein on the surface of the skin. Sections of the vein are removed through these small puncture sites. This may be performed in the office with local anesthesia. Graduated compression is needed afterwards. 

Endolaser Vein Therapy (ELVeS)

Endolaser Vein Therapy is an office-based procedure designed to replace the old-fashioned vein stripping. With ELVeS, a thin laser fiber, guided by ultrasound, is inserted into the GSV or SSV. After local (tumescent) anesthesia, laser energy is delivered to the diseased vein. This causes the truncal vein to close and eliminates the reflux. Subsequently, the branching varicose veins on the surface of the skin collapse. Those veins that do not collapse completely may be treated with sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy. Graduated compression is needed post-treatment. There is no "down time" as patients are up and on their feet immediately and instructed to ambulate on a daily basis.
