Vein Treatments at Alpha Vein Clinic in Las Vegas

 Do you suffer from painful, aching legs that cramp easily and feel restless during the night? Do your legs tire easily and become progressively more swollen as you conclude your daytime routines? If so, you most likely are suffering from a condition known as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI).  CVI is a condition in which the veins have trouble sending blood from the legs back to the heart due to valves that disfunction. This allows blood to pool in the legs and therefore weakening and stretching the vein walls. As a result, the veins become the bulging and twisted veins that we know as varicose veins. These pesky veins can be on the surface or even lurking just beneath, consequently leaving many wondering why they are feeling the bothersome symptoms that are associated with this vein disease.

Vein treatment is the only option that will completely rid you of your symptoms. Treatment can also stop this progressive disease from possibly leading to more serious concerns such as venous leg ulcers. In Las Vegas, the best place to go for all of your leg vein related needs is Alpha Vein Clinic. We use the latest and minimally invasive procedures to treat vein disease in patients from all walks of life. Our physician, Dr Sassan Kaveh is highly experienced in the many stages of CVI and provides treatment options that fit into even the busiest of lifestyles. Your treatment options at Alpha Vein Clinic include Radiofrequency Ablation and ClariVein.

Radiofrequency Ablation in Las Vegas

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. This technique uses radiofrequency energy to heat up and damage the wall inside a vein. Ablation means heat is used to damage tissue, which makes scar tissue form. This scar tissue closes the vein and blood is rerouted to healthy veins. As a result, the closed vein is eventually reabsorbed by surrounding tissue.

How it is done

Alpha Vein Clinic does this procedure in our clinic on an outpatient basis under local anaesthesia. While ultrasound visual guidance is used, radiofrequency energy is directed through a thin tube (catheter) which is inserted through a small incision in the vein below the knee. Our physician, Dr Sassan Kaveh, treats 7 cm segments of the vein with a 20-second burst of radiofrequency energy causing the vessel to shrink around the catheter. The catheter is carefully withdrawn, treating each segment until the entire length of the vein has been sealed. An average 45 cm length vein can be treated in this manner in just three to five minutes. This procedure eliminates the need for groin surgery and general anesthesia. The procedure also results in little to no scarring and is generally performed using local anesthesia in a vein specialist’s office or an outpatient surgical facility.

Most noteworthy, with less pain, bruising and faster recovery times, Radiofrequency Ablation is an excellent choice to make for treating your leg vein disease and symptoms.

ClariVein in Las Vegas

Another treatment option available at Alpha Vein Clinic is ClariVein. ClariVein is a MOCA (Mechanical Occlusion Chemically Assisted) technique which uses mechanical agitation of the lining of the vein. This, together with a sclerosing chemical, glues and seals the vessel closed. The catheter is inserted in a similar fashion to RF Ablation with ultrasound imaging guidance. There is no need for the use of a tumescent anaesthetic which makes this a very comfortable experience for the patient. Since no heat is used, this painless procedure has no risks of thermal damage and causes little to no bruising. There is a rapid recovery period with a quick return to normal activities. Dr Sassan Kaveh is one of the only physicians in Nevada to provide this procedure for his patients.
