It’s can be hard to know when you should seek the services of a vein treatment specialist.
However, vein issues can quickly lead to more serious conditions and should be identified and treated right away.
In most cases, treatment sessions can be minimally invasive, quick, and even have little recovery time.
Some of the most commonly performed vein treatment options include the following:
While these two treatment options are performed in a similar way, EVLA is generally ideal for larger veins in the legs.
During your treatment, a small catheter is inserted into the damaged vein for healing purposes.
Your sclerotherapy treatment will either be guided through ultrasound or visually.
Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy can help treat the root cause of vein disease by injecting medicine directly in to damaged veins.
Once targeted, these damaged veins scar and close to force blood to flow to the healthier surrounding veins.
Visually guided sclerotherapy is performed for damaged veins which are easy to see without ultrasound.
Compression stockings are generally recommended for less serious vein issues.
These prescription grade stockings work hard to promote healthy blood flow.
However, it is important to note that while compression stocking treat the symptoms of vein issues, they do not treat the root cause of your vein damage.
If you have noticed that you have vein issues, it is important that you seek the services of a vein expert such as those at The Vein Center of Maryland.
