Varicose Veins Treatment
Varicose veins produce significant symptoms and can lead to serious medical conditions. It’s hard to believe that it was just a few years ago that the only remedy for varicose veins was through surgical stripping. This process involved surgery followed by a lengthy recovery period. The good news is those days are over.
Whether your problem is a simple cosmetic issue or a more serious one such as a life or limb threatening ulceration, Boulder Vein Center is your trusted source for total vein therapy. We offer the latest solutions for varicose veins and spider veins that do not require surgery. Boulder Vein Center is pleased to offer the following state-of-the-art procedures that will eliminate varicose veins:
Laser Vein Removal
VenacureTM Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) is a clinically proven in-office procedure that takes about one hour. There is minimal to no scarring and no general anesthesia or hospitalization is required. Our patients can return to their normal routine quickly and the procedure is covered by most insurance carriers.
Thermal Ablation Vein Removal
Endovenous Radiofreqency Ablation System (ClosureFast™) procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency ablation (heat) to seal off the diseased vein so blood gets rerouted to nearby healthy veins. There is minimal to no scarring and no general anesthesia or hospitalization is required. Our patients can return to their normal routine quickly and the procedure is covered by most insurance carriers.
Medical Adhesive Procedure
The VenaSeal system improves blood flow by sealing – or closing – the diseased vein. The system delivers a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive to the diseased vein. The adhesive seals the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins. There is minimal to no scarring and no general anesthesia or hospitalization is required. Our patients can return to the normal routine immediately. This procedure does not require the use of compression socks before or after treatment and may be covered by your insurance.
Microphlebectomy is a procedure that removes sections of a superficial vein that has swelled and bulged from the surface of the leg. Microphlebectomy is often recommended in combination with EVLT; however, there are some cases where the prescribed treatment is microphlebectomy alone. This procedure is completed in the office under a local anesthetic medication. The patient is able to return home shortly after the procedure.
Sclerotherapy, or injection therapy, is a minimally-invasive method for addressing spider and some larger veins. It is frequently done with the use of a Vein-light or Ultrasound-guidance. The vein is injected with a diluted “sclerosant” medicine, most frequently Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate (Sotradecol™) or Polidocanol (Asclera™). The lining of the vein is irritated causing it to swell and stick together. The blood clots and the vessel becomes a scar that fades from view over time. This type of clot is not dangerous and does not migrate into the larger veins of the body. This technology has actually been in use since the early 1900s.
Veingogh Spider Vein Treatment
VeinGogh is a fast, new treatment technology that uses special thermal energy to eliminate spider veins on the face or extremities.
Gradient compression stockings and hosiery provide pressure that is strongest around the foot and ankle and looser as it moves up the leg. The steady pressure provided by compression socks assists the leg muscles and veins in moving blood more efficiently and quickly up the leg to the heart. We provide a comprehensive selection of graded compression stockings.
