Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins This Year

Say Goodbye to Varicose Veins This Year

Up to 35% of people in the United States develop varicose veins — and women are twice as likely as men to have the condition. While usually not medically serious, these ropey, twisting veins that bulge just beneath the surface of your skin can be a cosmetic nuisance, compelling you to keep your legs covered.

To bare your legs with confidence again, Dr. Madaiah Revana and the team here at Humble Cardiology Associates offer a number of highly effective varicose vein treatment options.

Here, we review these options so that you can make this the year you say goodbye to varicose veins.

Your options for banishing varicose veins

We have many options when it comes to getting rid of varicose veins, and the one that’s right for you depends upon the size, number, and location of the veins. To give you an idea, here’s a quick look at each:

Sclerotherapy

With this approach to varicose veins, we inject a liquid or foam into the target varicose vein. This substance causes the vein to collapse and your body naturally reabsorbs the defunct vein.

ClosureFast™

Another approach for eliminating varicose veins is our ClosureFast system. With this minimally invasive system, we deliver radiofrequency energy through a small catheter and the heat shrinks the diseased blood vessel, effectively cutting off the blood.

VenaSeal™

With VenaSeal, we thread a small catheter into your varicose vein and release a special adhesive inside that closes off the blood vessel.

Varithena®

This solution for varicose veins involves just one or two injections of a special foam that closes off the vein.

Ambulatory phlebectomy

Using very small incisions, Dr. Revana removes the varicose vein from your leg.

What to expect during and after your varicose veins treatments

We perform all of the procedures we outline above right in our office. It typically takes us only 30-60 minutes, at which point you’re free to return home. We make every effort to keep you comfortable during your varicose vein procedure and provide you with a local anesthetic whenever needed.
