Tired of uncomfortable, unsightly vein problems? Learn about the available treatments to identify the best one for you. Without treatment, a minor problem with your veins can get much worse. So it’s important to see a vein doctor like the specialists at Precision VIR for an evaluation. Following are a few of the safe, effective and minimally-invasive procedures we use to help patients with vein issues.
At Precision VIR, sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment of common spider and small varicose veins, without the need of anesthesia, performed in the office. It is can used to treat spider veins visible at the surface of the skin. It also applies to treatment of veins that are deeper under the skin surface, which is aided with the use of ultrasound guidance. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a chemical sclerosant directly into the diseased vein, causing a local irritation and ultimately causes the vein to close. The solution can be in a liquid or foam. The sclerosant we use at Precision VIR is the safest and most effective on the market. Learn more.
ClosureFast Targeted Endovenous Therapy
DVTs may be treated with blood thinning medications called anticoagulants or clot-busting medications termed thrombolytic therapy. In some cases, clots are removed with a catheter or surgery. People that cannot tolerate or do not respond to anticoagulation may have a permanent filter inserted in their vein. The filter prevents large embolisms from entering the lungs but it does not stop blood clots from developing. Learn more.
