Show Off Your Legs More Confidently With Varicose Vein Removal

Show Off Your Legs More Confidently With Varicose Vein Removal

Here in our corner of Texas, we often enjoy prolonged short and skirt seasons due to our temperate, if not hot, climate. Instead of enjoying this freedom, however, you’re hiding your legs behind layers of clothing thanks to varicose veins.

These bulging and ropey veins are common — they affect 30% of the general population, and women outpace men by more than two to one thanks to reproductive hormones. 

While you might find the fact that you’re not alone when it comes to varicose veins comforting, even better is the fact that there are quick-and-easy treatment options for troublesome leg veins. And we offer them here at Humble Cardiology Associates. 

Under the direction of cardiovascular expert Dr. Madaiah Revana, our team routinely helps patients clear away unsightly varicose veins so that they can bare their legs with confidence again. And we can do the same for you.

Where did those varicose veins come from?

The leading cause of varicose veins is chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which affects more than 25 million adults in the United States. With CVI, valves in the veins in your legs fail to close properly, which allows blood to spill backward.

When this occurs, the blood can engorge the vein to the point where it pushes to the surface, creating a varicose vein.

In most cases, varicose veins aren’t cause for concern, medically speaking, but for some people they can lead to issues like cramping, itching, and even ulcers.

Whether you’re reading this because your varicose veins are leading to side effects or you want to be rid of them for cosmetic reasons, we have you covered.

Saying goodbye to varicose veins is easy

To kick off this part of the discussion, we want to point out an important fact — 90% of the circulation in your legs is accomplished by deep veins, and these are not the veins that are involved with varicose veins. So, the treatments we’re going to explore next only involve your superficial veins, and your blood easily reroutes itself after we get rid of your bothersome veins.

Now that you understand that treating varicose veins won’t impact your circulation, let’s look at your options, which include:

Sclerotherapy

With this technique, we inject a sclerosing agent into the target vein that causes the vein to collapse. For this, we often turn to a foam called Varithena®. After your Varithena treatment, your body naturally reabsorbs the remnants of the blood vessel.

Radiofrequency energy

Another approach is with an innovative treatment called ClosureFast®. With this treatment, we deliver radiofrequency energy into the vein that causes it to close, allowing your body to process the vein naturally.

Sealing the vein

We also offer VenaSeal® treatments in which we inject an adhesive into the vein that seals it up.

Ambulatory phlebectomy

If you have large varicose veins that don’t respond to the treatments above, we can remove the veins surgically during a quick, in-office visit. We use a local anesthetic to make you comfortable. Then we make a small incision and use a hook to remove the vein and seal the ends.

As you can see, you have effective, easy options that can make quick work of the varicose veins on your legs.
