Get The Best Varicose Vein Treatment From Dr. Magnant

What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are abnormally enlarged superficial veins, most commonly appearing in the legs. They often appear as purple or blue twisting, bulging vessels that rise above the surface of the skin and are typically the branches of the long and short saphenous veins. Healthy leg veins contain one-way valves that allow the transportation of blood back to the heart, while varicose veins have leaky valves that no longer function properly.

As many as 30 million U.S. adults are affected by superficial venous insufficiency or varicose veins and may have an easily treatable problem. In many patients, however, having varicose veins could be a sign of a more serious underlying health problem and should seek varicose vein treatment immediately.

Your Veins Could Be Telling You Something

Varicose veins are commonly found on the inside of the legs and back of the calves, although they can form anywhere on the legs from the groin to the ankle. These damaged veins can be both unsightly and painful, often presenting themselves in the following symptoms:

  • Achy, tired, or heavy feeling legs
  • Burning or throbbing legs
  • Leg muscle cramps
  • Swollen legs or ankles
  • Itching
  • Bulging, “ropey” looking leg veins
  • Skin Discoloration around your veins

Left untreated, varicose veins could lead to serious medical conditions such as ulcers and blot clots, also known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). If you think you have varicose veins, it is critical you visit Dr. Magnant, who will examine your symptoms and provide the best varicose vein treatment plan to give you the healthy legs you once had.

What is Causing Your Varicose Veins?

Even active individuals with otherwise excellent health may experience varicose veins. In fact, 40% of women and 25% of men find they require varicose vein treatment. Several preventable and unpreventable factors contribute to the formation of varicose veins.

Some of the factors that could be causing your varicose veins include:

  • Heredity
  • Age
  • Prolonged Standing or Sitting
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Leg Trauma
  • Weight Fluctuations
  • Obesity

The Latest In Varicose Vein Treatments

You don’t have to live with unattractive, painful varicose veins when we have several innovative, noninvasive, outpatient varicose vein treatment options available to you. Our Board Certified Vascular Surgeon Dr. Magnant and the expert team at Vein Specialists will use state-of-the-art ultrasound testing equipment to pinpoint the leaky valves in your veins accurately and customize the right varicose vein treatment plan for you.

Here at Vein Specialists, we have the latest technology to help give you back the healthy legs you remember. Our innovative varicose vein treatment options are covered by most insurance carriers and include:

Conservative Therapy

One of the easiest and least-invasive varicose vein treatment options is conservative therapy using medical-grade compression stockings. While compression therapy won’t get rid of varicose veins, it can help relieve some of the following venous insufficiency symptoms:

  • Restless Legs
  • Leg Cramps
  • Ulcerations
  • Skin Thickening Around the Ankles
  • Achy, Swollen Legs
  • Skin Discoloration
  • “Cankles” (calves and ankles disproportionate to the legs)
  • Swollen Achy Legs
  • Skin Discoloration

The best place to buy your compression stocking is here at Vein Specialists. Our vein care experts analyze your venous issues, measure you, and provide you with the ideal compression stockings to fit your needs and deliver the temporary relief you desire.

Although compression therapy is simply the wearing of special socks, it is still considered a varicose vein treatment that most insurance providers cover. It is a great place to start when you are looking to treat your venous disease.

Endovenous Ablation

Endovenous ablation is a gentle, minimally invasive, varicose vein treatment that seals your leaky veins with heat from radiofrequency or LASER energy. In this outpatient procedure, under local anesthesia, Dr. Magnant inserts a thin catheter into your diseased vein using ultrasound guidance and delivers the appropriate energy to the vein to seal it closed. Over a matter of weeks, your painful varicose veins will depressurize, shrink, and, in some cases, disappear completely. If there is residual bulging vein tissue, it can be removed through tiny incisions during another noninvasive outpatient procedure.

When you choose endogenous ablation, you will experience minimal to no pain, no incisions, minimal scarring, and relief from:

  • Swelling
  • Skin Discoloration
  • Bleeding or Ulceration

Your venous disease may be entirely treatable using endogenous ablation, allowing you to return to normal activity quickly. This varicose vein treatment has a long-term success rate over 95% and is an excellent option for many of our varicose vein patients.

VenaSeal Vein Treatment

This minimally invasive varicose vein treatment uses a specially formulated medical adhesive to seal your diseased veins, rerouting blood to your healthier veins. VenaSeal is the only non-swelling, non-thermal, and non-sclerosant procedure approved for medical use in the U.S. and is highly effective at eliminating varicose veins.

Dr. Magnant will use ultrasound guidance to locate your diseased vein, numb the area with local anesthetic, and carefully deliver the medical adhesive to the prescribed area using a catheter. The safe and effective adhesive and diseased veins are absorbed by your body in the following months, successfully ridding you of your varicose veins.

There are several key benefits of VenaSeal Vein Treatment:

  • It is an outpatient procedure, requiring only local anesthesia
  • You will experience little to no pain
  • With a fast recovery time, you can walk and drive immediately after your procedure

Microphlebectomy

Unlike other varicose vein treatments available at Vein Specialists, Microphlebectomy is considered a minor “surgical” procedure. However, Microphlebectomy remains a noninvasive outpatient procedure and takes as little as 30 minutes to perform.

To remove your bulging varicose veins using Microphlebectomy, Dr. Magnant applies a local anesthetic and uses ultrasound guidance to determine the precise location of your leaky veins. He then makes several tiny incisions to quickly and easily remove your diseased vein. This varicose vein treatment is completely safe, has little down time, and requires no sutures.

Sclerotherapy

Injection sclerotherapy is a highly-effective, noninvasive spider and varicose vein treatment performed by Dr. Magnant and his team of Registered Nurse Practitioners. During this treatment, Dr. Magnant will inject your diseased vein with a diluted FDA-approved chemical solution that inflames the wall of your vein, causing it to close.

This non-surgical procedure is very common and has several of benefits, including:

  • Ability to treat large areas
  • Shorter diseased vein healing time
  • Little to no discomfort

You will see results from this varicose vein treatment is anywhere from a few weeks to several months, depends on the size of the treated area and the extent of your vein disease.

VeinGogh

Another innovative spider vein treatment performed by Dr. Magnant is an Ohmic Thermolysis System treatment called VeinGogh. This minimally invasive procedure effectively eliminates small spider veins on the body, many times on the nose and face. Many VeinGogh treatments only require one session, but you may need more if you have larger areas that need treatment.

The VeinGogh spider vein treatment focuses tiny microbursts of heat on through a small, hair-thin probe on your damaged spider veins. This heat  coagulates the blood and collapses the vein wall causing it to fade from view and absorb into your body. While this technique to rid you of spider veins uses heat, it does not damage the outer layers of your skin.

When considering your spider vein treatment options, there are several benefits of VeinGogh treatment, including:

  • Little to no pain (might feel like a small pinch)
  • Fast procedure completed in a matter of minutes
  • Noninvasive
  • Absolutely no downtime
  • Instant visual results, with continuous improvement over the following weeks
  • Permanent vein elimination

VeinGogh not only works on spider veins, but it is also an effective treatment option used to eliminate:

  • Cherry hemangiomas (raised red freckles or moles)
  • Strawberry hemangiomas (raised freckles or moles)
  • Skin tags
  • Rosacea
