Your Treatment Options at PCI Vein Center
Today, there are a variety of options in vein treatments to eliminate unattractive and uncomfortable varicose and spider veins. At PCI Vein Center, we offer many of the latest innovations in vein treatment for our patients, allowing us to customize treatment to your unique needs and desired outcome. Most of our treatments are minimally-invasive and can be completed with little disruption to your daily schedule.
Spider Vein Treatments
At PCI Vein Center, we offer the following options in spider vein treatment:
Veinwave – This innovative treatment uses thermocoagulation or electrical energy to treat small, superficial spider veins, telangiectasia and symptoms of rosacea. Heat is delivered through an insulated needle to collapse the walls of the vessel so the vein seals shut and is eventually reabsorbed by the body.
Sclerotherapy – This injectable treatment continues to be the “gold standard” for treating spider veins and some smaller varicose vein. The sclerosing agent is injected directly into the affected vein, irritating the walls of the vessel so they seal together and close off the vein from the rest of the vascular system.
Varicose Vein Treatments
Larger varicose veins can be addressed using one or more of these treatment options:
Venefit – Venefit is a revolutionary treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to get rid of unsightly varicose veins. A narrow catheter delivers radiofrequency energy into the diseased vein, sealing the vein completely closed. Blood is rerouted through healthy veins nearby, while the treated vein is slowly absorbed by the body.
EVLT – Endovenous laser ablation therapy (laser vein treatment) works in similar fashion to Venefit, but uses laser heat instead of radiofrequency energy. This procedure is effective on even larger varicose veins that may be accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms like heaviness, swelling and night cramping.
Microphlebectomy – Another option for larger varicose veins is microphlebectomy, a minimally-invasive procedure that removes diseased veins from the leg in small sections. A special tool is inserted into the leg via a micro incision that requires no sutures and leaves little or no scarring afterward.
All of the vein treatments available at PCI Vein Center can be performed on an outpatient basis and require little or no discomfort and downtime. Patients are often back to regular activities immediately following their procedures or by the next day. Because veins are completely eliminated, these procedures are considered permanent. However, if new veins develop, additional treatments can be performed to maintain positive results.
At PCI Vein Center, we offer a wide range of vein treatments to meet every patient’s needs, budget and desired outcome. To learn more about our practice or our treatment options, contact us today at 319-774-8432.
