VARICOSE VEINS – DECLARE YOUR INDEPENDENCE TODAY & GET TREATED!
Do you suffer from varicose veins, those nasty bulging veins that make us all so insecure? The veins that make you cover up even in the heat of the Las Vegas summer. Do you feel hopeless that there will never be a solution to this “vein” problem. Well we are here to tell you that there is a solution. Here at the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas our specialty is to make you comfortable in your own skin again!
WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS:
Varicose (VAR-i-kos) veins are swollen, twisted veins that you can see just under the surface of the skin. These veins usually occur in the legs, but they also can form in other parts of the body. Varicose veins are a common condition. They usually cause few signs and symptoms. Sometimes varicose veins cause mild to moderate pain, blood clots, skin ulcers (sores), or other problems. They are more common in women than men. Around 25 percent of all adults have varicose veins. In most cases, varicose veins appear on the lower legs.
CAUSES OF VARICOSE VEINS:
Varicose veins occur when veins aren’t functioning properly. Veins have one-way valves that prevent blood from flowing backward. When these valves fail, blood begins to collect in the veins rather than continuing toward your heart. The veins then enlarge. Varicose veins often affect the legs. The veins there are the farthest from your heart, and gravity makes it harder for the blood to flow upward.
Some potential causes for varicose veins include:
- age over 50
- standing for long periods of time
- family history of varicose veins.
OUTLOOK FOR PEOPLE WITH VARICOSE VEINS:
Varicose veins normally get worse over time. This is true even if you make the necessary lifestyle changes to control them and manage your pain. In some cases, varicose veins can lead to ulcers or sores on your legs, blood clots, or chronic inflammation. If you have a severe case, your veins could rupture. You should give us a call here at the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas if you develop any of these symptoms. We then may suggest taking a more aggressive approach, such as surgery or other interventions.
We may advise you to wear special compression socks or stockings. These place enough pressure on your legs so that blood can flow more easily to your heart. They also decrease swelling. The level of compression varies, but most types of compression stockings are available in drugstores or medical supply stores.
If lifestyle changes aren’t working, or if your varicose veins are causing a lot of pain or damaging your overall health, We might try an invasive procedure. Currently, a wide variety of minimally invasive treatment options for varicose veins are available. These include:
THE RADIO FREQUENCY ABLATION PROCEDURE: The Radiofrequency Ablation Las Vegas or the Venefit™ procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) in which our vein specialist (Dr. Kaveh) inserts a Covidien ClosureFast™ Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins.
THE CLARIVEIN OR (MOCA) PROCEDURE: ( MOCA) varicose vein treatments using the ClariVein catheter has many advantages over existing Laser or Radiofrequency techniques including:
- MOCA (Mechanical Occlusion Chemically Assisted) uses mechanical agitation of the lining of the vein together with a sclerosing chemical to glue the vessel closed
- Effective and safe technique with no pain
- Minimal discomfort & negligible bruising
- No risk of thermal (heat) damage as there may be with techniques such as laser or radiofrequency ablation
- No risk of nerve or skin damage
- No multiple needle stick injuries (no tumescent anaesthetic is required)
- No internal leg pressure
- Rapid return to normal activities
Sclerotherapy has been a classic method to treat varicose veins and sometimes even deeper veins like the great and small saphenous veins. However, today, we can use newer advanced technology, well covered under your health insurance, to treat the underlying diseased veins that give rise to these spider and varicose veins. This way, it may not be necessary to do the expensive therapy to achieve good cosmetic results. Sclerotherapy has been shown not to be as effective for the treatment of the deeper large veins as the newer techniques have found to be.
You should always talk to a doctor that specializes in venous disease about your treatment options and the risks before choosing a method. The method recommended can depend on your symptoms, size, and location of the varicose vein.
