How Do Varicose Veins Form?
High blood pressure inside your superficial leg veins is one of the causes of enlarged and painful varicose veins.
The veins in our legs carry blood back up to the heart. There are little valves inside the vein that prevent the blood from flowing downwards and gathering in the legs.
The problem starts happening when high blood pressure in the vein damages the valves, making them weak. Once the valves are weak, blood flows downwards and accumulates in one area of the vein causing the vein to bulge, which is a varicose vein.
When blood continues to accumulate in your varicose veins, your chances of developing a blood clot in those veins increases with every day that goes by.

VARICOSE VEIN REMOVAL
Laser Varicose Vein Treatment (EVLT)
Our Spring Hill vein doctors perform a minimally-invasive laser closure technique that does not require sutures or staples, where only the diseased veins are removed. This state-of-the-art varicose vein surgery technique called Endovenous Laser Ablation (also known as EVLT procedure) is preferred since it offers quick recovery time and leaves minimal to no scarring on your legs.
During varicose vein laser ablation a thin catheter is inserted into the vein through a tiny incision. Then, laser energy is transmitted to the vein wall through the catheter.
The laser energy causes the vein wall to heat up, cave-in, and seal shut. Over time, the vein eventually dissolves into the surrounding tissue.
This laser vein treatment procedure takes only about 45-60 minutes. But, taking into consideration the time needed for pre-treatment and post-treatment procedures you should plan to spend a total of 2 hours in our office.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE EVLT PROCEDURE
Varithena® Treatment For Varicose Vein Removal
Varithena® treatment is a minimally invasive varicose veins treatment for superficial venous reflux. Through a tiny puncture, a microfoam is injected directly into the diseased veins. The Varithena® microfoam fills the desired section of the vein and treats the vein wall, causing the diseased vein to collapse. Blood flow is redirected to healthier nearby veins. The microfoam disperses as it comes into contact with blood in healthy veins.
VARITHENA® VEIN REMOVAL PROCESS
Varithena® treatment has been shown to be effective, even when other treatments have failed. There are benefits to using Varithena® to treat varicose veins, such as:
Varithena® is a quick and easy procedure that takes less than an hour to perform and is an excellent option for patients who have had previous, unsuccessful saphenous vein treatment results. The procedure is provided on an outpatient basis, and allows quick recovery so patients can enjoy minimal down time and no scarring in the treatment area.
VARITHENA® VEIN REMOVAL RECOVERY
Following the Varithena® vein removal procedure, most patients may resume some activities on the same day but you must avoid heavy exercise for one week, after which you can resume regular activity. After the procedure, you will need to wear graduated compression stockings for one month for added support while your legs fully heal.
Is Varicose Vein Treatment Painful?
The treatment area is numbed using local anesthesia. The majority of our patients do not feel any pain at all during the EVLT procedure, whereas, a few patients have reported that they experience mild discomfort during and after the procedure.
Patients can opt to use the PRO-NOX™ system during treatment to reduce pain and anxiety.
The PRO-NOX™ system is a self-administered nitrous oxide and oxygen analgesia system that allows you to control how much pain and anxiety relief you receive by inhaling the gas through a tube you place in your mouth. You will feel the effects immediately, helping you to relax through your procedure. The gas mixture clears from your body within minutes, so you will be alert and able to function safely after the procedure.
Right after varicose vein treatment patients are actually able to walk right out of the treatment room.
Varicose Vein Surgery Recovery
COMPRESSION BANDAGE USED FOR OPTIMAL RECOVERY AFTER VARICOSE VEIN SURGERY
Immediately after varicose vein surgery, patients will have their legs wrapped with a compression bandage. They are advised to elevate the leg and rest for the first day.
The following day, our patients are usually able to return to work and normal activities, free of swelling and pain.
It is also recommended to avoid strenuous activity and to wear compression stockings for two to three weeks following the vein surgery.
