Over 40% of the world population suffers from varicose veins. In the past, vein stripping was the only treatment option for this condition. This was a largely unpleasant and somewhat ineffective form of therapy.
This has been replaced, thankfully, by new non-thermal and thermal treatments. Non-thermal therapies for varicose veins here in Miami are among the most efficient and comfortable therapy options. They also do not require anesthesia.
Here are some of the latest non-thermal options available for varicose vein treatments.
This procedure uses a VenaSeal device with glue to seal troublesome veins. Cyanoacrylate glue mixes with plasma and blood to form a polymer, which prevents swelling in diseased veins. This glue is categorized as a medical technology instead of a drug by the FDA due to its unique properties.
This is one of the least traumatic and least invasive therapies for varicose veins in modern times.
Use of the Clarivein Device
This device was in fact invented to minimize patient discomfort. The procedure involves insertion of a wire in diseased veins through a small incision typically below your knee. Once the device is inside the diseased vein, a sclerosant is injected through the vein’s length sealing it permanently.
The procedure takes about an hour and is performed in-office. Prescription stockings are worn for some time afterwards.
The Varithena Procedure
This procedure uses a form of microfoam, which transforms from a liquid to foam once mixed with carbon dioxide and oxygen. This foam consists of evenly sized bubble particles that carry sclerosants to your vein’s lining. This effectively seals your vein.
With all the advancements in varicose vein therapy, there is no excuse why you should continue suffering from the condition. The ideal therapy option depends on the particulars of your condition. Always consult a varicose vein expert to establish the best procedure for your circumstance.
