Advances in Technology Provide New Vein Treatment Options for Patients

In the past, patients who were suffering from spider veins or varicose veins could only find relief by going through a lengthy, and sometimes painful, surgical procedure. Recent technological advances have changed the vein treatment options that are available to patients seeking treatment for spider or varicose veins.

New, state-of-the-art treatment options, such as VenaSeal, and Varithena, help patients treat spider or varicose veins quickly, easily, and with minimal downtime or pain. Taking a closer look at the new varicose or spider vein treatment options that are available through Premier Heart & Vein Care can help you determine which treatment may be best for your unique situation.

Treat Large Varicose Veins in the Leg with Varithena

Large varicose veins that run down the leg can be extremely painful, not to mention unsightly. Varithena is an FDA approved treatment option for men and women who are suffering from large, bulging varicose veins in the leg.

Varithena is unique because it uses a special type of foam to treat the varicose veins. The foam is injected directly into the vein. Once it is injected into the vein, it will slowly start to irritate the inner lining of the vein. The irritation causes the vein to close. Once the vein closes, the body will naturally redirect the blood to other healthier veins, which dramatically reduces the appearance and symptoms associated with varicose veins.

VenaSeal Uses "Super Glue" to Treat Problematic Veins

VenaSeal relies upon a unique type of "glue" to treat spider and varicose veins. The glue is injected into the damaged or unhealthy vein. Once in the vein, it will form a sealed barrier which will relieve any symptoms associated with varicose or spider veins. The symptoms are relieved because the body reroutes the blood to nearby veins that are often stronger and healthier.

Every patient is unique when it comes to seeking vein treatment. What works for one individual may not work for another. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Ken Stevens at Premier Heart & Vein Care in San Luis Obispo, California. Dr. Stevens will gladly discuss your individual case with you and provide you with treatment recommendations.
