Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose veins are more than a mild annoyance and need specialized varicose vein treatment. They can be a symptom of an underlying condition called venous insufficiency. By age 60, this disorder affects about 70% of women and 40% of men. Left untreated, the problem will worsen, and it can cause a chronic condition that requires medical attention. So treat varicose veins now before they get worse.
Turn to The Vein Institute of Utah and highly-trained specialist Dr. Ehsan Hadjbian. Dr. Hadjbian uses the latest, most effective procedures to treat varicose veins safely and successfully. Plus, varicose vein procedures are covered by most insurance plans.
What are the varicose vein treatment methods?
Dr. Hadjbian uses proven, minimally invasive procedures to treat varicose veins. He and his team of medical professionals will take the time to evaluate your needs and create a customized treatment strategy for you. Dr. Hadjbian may use one or more of the following techniques:
- EndoVenous Laser Treatment (Ablation) – This 45-minute office procedure, also known as EVLT, requires only local anesthetic and allows patients to return to normal activity immediately with little or no pain. Vein Institute of Utah utilizes an 1470nm Endovenous laser. This laser is one of the most advanced lasers available for modern varicose vein treatments. There is significantly less bruising and pain, which means you can return to normal activities sooner and with less recovery complications. Most patients only require ibuprofen post treatment.
Endovenous Laser Treatment (Ablation) involves using duplex ultrasound to map the saphenous vein and then moving a laser fiber through the vein to the groin. The laser then releases highly targeted energy to seal the vein shut. Thermal (heat) ablation contracts and permanently blocks the blood vessel being treated, with minimal effects beyond the vessel wall.
- Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy is used to guide injections into difficult-to-see problem veins and harder-to-locate veins deep within the leg. The harder-to-reach veins are often the blood supply for problem veins. Until the deeper damaged veins are destroyed, surface veins will not disappear. Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy addresses the underlying cause of varicose and spider veins and often eliminates the problem. Dr. Hadjbian has helped pioneer the advanced techniques of both ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy as a well as endovenous foam treatment in the state of Utah.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy – A varicose vein treatment with a minor surgical procedure. Dr. Hadjbian treats larger varicose veins by using tiny incisions to remove sections of veins at the surface of the skin. The Ambulatory Phlebectomy procedure takes about 60 minutes and patients can typically return to work the same or next day.
What are the results?
Many patients benefit from these minimally invasive procedures, usually performed under local anesthesia by Dr. Hadjbian in the comfort of The Vein Institute of Utah’s office, with minimal time away from work and other normal activities. Most importantly, these treatments can greatly reduce or completely eliminate leg pain while dramatically improving the appearance of your legs.
