Below, we present a brief description of the vein treatment services offered at our medical suite.
Sclerotherapy is an almost painless procedure that entails the use of a very fine needle to inject a sclerosant (a liquid medication) directly into an unsightly vein. The injected vein is damaged and then eventually absorbed by the body. Dr. Dishakjian uses Sclerotherapy to reduce leg spider veins, chest veins, and prominent hand veins. The cosmetic outcome of the procedure is excellent but the final results are only seen after several weeks.
SCLEROTHERAPY TREATMENT OF SPIDER VEINS
This technique uses the injection of a foamed chemical instead of a liquid as is the case with Sclerotherapy. The foamed nature of the injected substance ensures that less of the chemical will be needed for reducing larger veins, thus reducing the risk associated with the injection of a large amount of chemical in the body. Dr. Dishakjian uses foam Sclerotherapy to reduce medium-sized leg varicose veins. The results are impressive with no scarring. Patients can resume their normal activities on the day following the treatment.
FOAM SCLEROTHERAPY FOR BULGING LEG VEINS
In microphlebectomy, a hook like the crochet hook, is used to remove a superficial vein through a puncture on the overlying skin. Dr. Dishakjian uses microphlebectomy to remove the very superficial leg varicose veins. Scarring in the leg is minimal and patients can resume their normal activities the day following the procedure.
During the last decade, endovenous thermal ablation procedures have almost put an end to the surgical removal of leg varicose veins that required hospitalization and resulted in the scarring of the leg.
Endovenous thermal ablation uses a laser (EVLT system) or a radiofrequency generating electrode (Venefit system) to close the main superficial veins of the leg that are in direct communication with the deep vein system. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia and the laser fiber or the radiofrequency electrode is entered into the vein through a small incision created on the skin above the vein. During the procedure, the laser fiber or the electrode is guided using Ultrasound Duplex Imaging and the incompetent veins is closed by the application of thermal energy. The entire procedure takes less than an hour and patients are able to return to their normal activities on the day following the procedure. Besides the fact that the cosmetic outcome of the procedure is excellent, treatment with endovenous thermal ablation can alleviates most symptoms associated with varicose veins. Heavy and aching legs, restless legs, and leg cramping are a few examples.
