Varicose & Spider Vein Treatment

Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment

More than just a cosmetic issue, varicose veins may be an indicator of the more serious condition of compromised circulation. Varicose veins occur when venal valves deteriorate or malfunction, resulting in an unnatural accumulation of blood that causes the veins’ enlarged size, swollen and/or twisted appearance, and blue/purple/red color. Further, varicose veins may also manifest along with a heavy feeling in the legs and/or a burning, cramping, or throbbing sensation.

While varicose veins may be hereditary, there are other causes, such as:

  • Age/onset of menopause
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Standing for long periods of time

At Total Health, our expert team is highly trained in various advanced technologies for addressing varicose veins. We will consider all aspects of your daily activity, experiences with pain/discomfort, and physical condition to determine which of the following treatments is the most effective for you:

  • Laser therapy, a treatment in which a vein (typically smaller ones) is sealed from within via the use of high-intensity light
  • Sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive treatment with a salt solution that is injected into a varicose vein to ultimately reduce swelling
  • ClosureFast™, a noninvasive procedure that treats varicose veins via radiofrequency energy
  • VenaSeal™, a minimally invasive treatment in which a tiny catheter is inserted into a varicose vein to reroute the accumulation of blood to other, more viable veins

Whether varicose veins are a serious health concern for you, or you would simply like to address cosmetic concerns, please be sure to contact the Total Health team for more information.
