Varicose Vein treatments by Total Vein Wellness

Sclerotherapy Treatment for Varicose and Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy treatment has been used in the US since the 1930s and is one of the most popular treatments for smaller varicose veins and larger spider veins. The treatment is quick and effective and can be administered in office. Using a very fine needle, much smaller than the needles you are typically familiar with, the doctor injects a scarring agent, known as a sclerosant, into the affected vein. The treatment is virtually painless and does not require any numbing creams or other anesthetic. However, after the procedure you may experience mild discomfort and require over-the-counter pain medication.

You can immediately resume normal activities but should not exercise heavily for the first 48 hours.

Over time, the vein scars over and fades away. Patients with varicose veins will usually see results in 3-4 months, and patients with spider veins can see results between 3 and 6 weeks.

Dr. Naifeh will discuss sclerotherapy with you and inform you of exactly what to expect during your treatment.

Leg Ulcers

Leg ulcers can be as befuddling to patients as they are to numerous doctors who do not have experience with wound care and who are not vascular surgeons.

What Causes Leg Ulcers?

The issue starts with poor blood circulation in the legs. The blood flow issue could include arteries, veins, or both. Patients who smoke or have diabetes are at particularly high risk for having artery pathology. Patients with varicose veins and long-standing leg swelling are in danger of creating venous pathology in that they have built up thickened and stained skin. Venous ulcers do not happen in all patients with varicose veins and may happen without varicose veins present.

At the point when skin changes start to show up, the probability of ulceration builds. It is clearly better to treat the vein issues before this happens.

Albeit many doctors who are not knowledgeable about the treatment of leg ulcers accept that they happen precipitously, almost certainly, they happen following what might be a minor injury. The skin, which is already compromised from poor circulation, then fails to heal.

How Would I Treat Venous Leg Ulcers?

Venous ulcers hurt and are difficult to treat. Treatment consists of 2 components. The first is tending to the wound. The most widely used curative of the venous ulcer are pressure dressings impregnated with medicine which helps healing and decrease edema. These dressings are called Unna boots. The subsequent issue with respect to treatment of venous ulcers is addressing the venous circulation problem. Treatment of the venous insufficiency will encourage mending of the wound and lessen recurrence.
