More than 40 million people of all ages and walks of life in the U.S suffer from vein disorders such as varicose veins.
It's time to see a doctor if your veins become swollen, nearby skin changes color, start to bleed or are causing you physical/emotional stress.
Veinous diseases can be hereditary. Almost 50% of varicose vein patients have a family history of varicose veins.

Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is a minimally invasive treatment that is done as an outpatient treatment a doctors office setting. IN ELVT a thin laster fiber is inserted into the vein using ultrasound guidance. Laster energy is applied to the inside of the diseased vein and the heat emitted by the laser fiber seals the vein closed. Other healthy veins take over normal blood flow in the area. Over time the varicose vein is harmlessly absorbed by the body. This laster technique treats the underlying causes of varicose veins and has a 97% success rate. The great majority of spider veins will disappear with treatment of the main feeder veins. Any additional spider veins can be treated with sclerotherapy.
Scelerotherapy (SKLER-o-ther-ah-pe) uses an injectable solution or foam of saline and polidocanol which is a sclerosant that irritates the lining of the blood vessel causing it to close down.The treatment is administered by using a catheter or micro-needle to gently insert the solution into the affected veins. After the sclerosant causes the vein to shrink and close, the vein will fade away and disappear as it gets replaced by healthy tissue. This treatment is often used to treat smaller varicose and spider veins and it too is an outpatient procedure that is done in a doctor’s office or clinical setting. Following treatment your legs will be wrapped in elastic bandaging to help healing and reduce any swelling.
