Varicose Vein Treatment

If the thought of painful vein stripping has kept you from seeking treatment for your varicose veins, consider a non-invasive endovenous laser ablation. Dr. Neel Patel helps women who are afflicted with bulging, painful varicose veins by offering a laser procedure that treats both the symptom and its cause.

What is endovenous laser therapy?

Endovenous laser therapy, also known as endovenous laser ablation, is an FDA-approved laser treatment that eliminates varicose veins and replaces traditional surgical vein stripping. This quick, non-invasive procedure uses laser energy to close down the vein.

What are the benefits of varicose vein treatment?

Endovenous laser varicose vein treatment has outpaced traditional varicose vein surgery because of multiple benefits including:

What can I expect during endovenous laser therapy?

Dr. Patel performs this innovative, outpatient procedure in about an hour. The treatment is so gentle that it does not require anesthesia or sedation. Using a handheld laser and one ultra-thin needle, Dr. Patel locates each varicose vein, makes a microscopic incision, and presses the laser to the vein. The light energy halts the vein and causes it to break down. Depending on the severity of your varicose veins, this painless procedure lasts no more than an hour.

Sclerotherapy is another non-invasive option to treat varicose veins. Dr. Patel injects your swollen vein with sclerosant, an irritant solution that aggravates the vein until it cuts off the flow of blood. Eventually, the vein shrinks and becomes less noticeable.
Though considered a non-invasive procedure, ambulatory phlebectomy utilizes light anesthesia and small incisions. Dr. Patel accesses and removes your varicose veins at the incision sites. It’s far less invasive than surgery and is performed on an outpatient basis.
In most cases, you only need one treatment; whether endovenous laser therapy, sclerotherapy, or ambulatory phlebectomy to get satisfactory results. If your troublesome veins are unusually large or if you have multiple instances of varicose veins, Dr. Patel may recommend several treatments to get the best results.
