Treating Varicose and Spider Veins

Without Surgery

Treating Varicose and Spider Veins

According to Vascular, as many as 25 million Americans suffer from varicose and spider veins, but new technology is changing how these problems are treated and improving the lives of millions of Americans.

Instead of painful, surgical stripping procedures, medical facilities are using two increasingly popular non-surgical approaches: radio waves to treat varicose veins and special injections for spider veins.

Varicose veins look like twisted, bulging cords in the legs and feet. They are often painful, unsightly and can cause serious health issues. Spider veins are smaller and closer to the skin surface. Frequently branching out like a tree or spider web, spider veins are commonly found on the legs and face.

How Lasers Have Revolutionized Varicose Vein Treatment

Game Changer

Varicose veins are a daily struggle for millions of people. They can cause pain, throbbing, aching, tingling, itchiness, cramping, heaviness, throbbing and swelling in the legs. Despite having a big impact on many people’s daily quality of life, a lot of misconceptions still surround what causes them and how they are treated.

Varicose veins are caused by valves in your veins that don’t properly open and close allowing blood to pool in the legs instead of flowing back to the heart. In the past, the only way to treat this was with an in-patient surgical procedure known as vein stripping. New technological breakthroughs have changed treatment into a minimally invasive outpatient procedure done in a doctor’s office. Northern Arizona Radiology offers the most state-of-the-art vein treatment in the region using a VenaCure laser.
