What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are twisting, bulging, rope-like cords on the legs, anywhere from the ankle to the groin. Additionally, they are usually more uncomfortable and potentially harmful than spider veins. This is because varicose veins are larger distended veins, located deeper than spider veins. Many people hear of varicose veins, but very few truly understand their underlying cause or potential for developing into a serious medical problem.

If you experience severe varicose veins, it can compromise the nutrition of the skin and lead to pain and swelling. Other medical problems that can develop are eczema, inflammation, and even ulceration of the lower leg. That said, it is important to take care of vein disease early. Luckily, the treatment and removal of varicose veins is a procedure that most insurance providers cover.

How to Get Rid of Varicose Veins with Leading-Edge Treatments

At Vein911, we treat varicose veins using several leading-edge treatments including Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy and Endovenous Laser Treatment. We perform these treatments at all four of our Florida clinics.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

If you are wondering how to get rid of varicose veins, one option is Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy, sometimes referred to as Foam Sclerotherapy. This innovative methodology treats your varicose veins by actually removing them permanently. This treatment option is the ONLY vein treatment that can eliminate ALL problem veins a patient may have.

Endovenous Laser Treatment

Endovenous Laser Treatment has FDA approval and is custom-made for each patient. This treatment option also serves as an effective alternative to traditional tactics and much less effective vein-stripping surgery. Additionally, outpatient treatment provides rapid and practically pain-free results.
