Oh and you’ll be able to walk out of the facility in less than two hours!
Our Services: Which treatment is right for me?
While they are often a symptom of a larger problem, varicose and spider veins are not life-threatening conditions. Not all patients require surgical or minimally invasive treatments. In fact, you may get adequate relief of your symptoms from wearing graduated support stockings.
If symptoms persist, there are several options to treat varicose and spider veins. In rare cases, large varicose veins may be treated with a surgical procedure called vein stripping. But for most, a less invasive procedure will effectively eliminate varicose veins.
We invite you to visit one of our centers for free screening, which includes a review by a member of our staff to determine if a comprehensive evaluation is right for you. If you elect to have a comprehensive evaluation, we will provide a thorough ultrasound examination of your problem area or areas, a service that is generally covered by insurance. The comprehensive evaluation will enable us to make a recommendation for which course of treatment is best for you.
At Legacy Vein Clinic we offer four treatment options, based on the type of vein disorder you have and the degree to which it has progressed:
Endovenous Laser Treatment - Endovenous Laser Treatment is an FDA-approved alternative to surgical vein stripping. It requires a small needle stick into the affected vein, through which a laser fiber is inserted. As pulses of light are delivered inside the vein by the laser system, the vein collapses and is sealed shut. The procedure is typically very well tolerated and only requires the use of local anesthesia with or without a mild sedative. Following the procedure, the leg is wrapped in compression hose and you can resume normal activities.
The VenaSeal™ - closure system uses a special medical adhesive to close the vein. This unique approach protects against the risk of nerve injury when treating the small saphenous vein, which is an uncommon risk associated with certain thermal-based procedures. VenaSeal is administered without the use of tumescent anesthesia, avoiding the discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks.
Microphlebectomy - Microphlebectomy is the minimally-invasive removal of surface varicose veins. It too is performed on an outpatient basis, under local anesthesia. You are able to walk immediately after the procedure. Microphlebectomy incisions are tiny (so tiny that sutures are not needed) and typically leave nearly imperceptible marks
Sclerothera - Sclerotherapy can be used to treat either varicose veins or spider veins (although it is more frequently used for spider veins). It involves using a tiny needle to inject medication into the damaged vein(s). The medication irritates the vein’s lining, causing it to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body. If dealt with at an early stage, spider veins can be prevented from becoming a larger problem. Depending on the type and number of veins being treated, you may need one to several injections over one or several sessions. The procedure has little associated discomfort and you will be able to easily walk out of the facility at the end of the procedure wearing compression stockings.
