What is Venous Disease?

Venous diseases occur when veins are damaged, causing irregular blood flow to and from the heart. You may have heard the associated condition Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), which can develop due to injury, blood clots, health conditions, or surgery. CVI can create blood pooling–this fluid backup is the cause of swelling that leads to varicose and spider veins.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Healthy veins have a closed valve, so blood flow only occurs in one direction. Varicose veins, however, allow for blood to flow in both directions. The irregular blood flow causes visible swelling, which can ultimately lead to leg pain, restless legs, burning and itching sensations, discoloration of the skin, and even open sores or ulcers on the lower legs.

Our vein clinic offers several options for varicose vein treatment, including:

Endovenous Laser Treatment (CTEV™)

Endovenous Laser Treatment is an alternative to traditional surgical treatment methods. With this procedure, a small fiber emits light waves that eliminate varicose veins. Using laser fiber technology and laser light, our venous disease specialists safely seal the vein. As the light gently heats the vein, the vein will seal and blood will re-route and circulate through healthier veins. You can undergo this short but effective varicose vein treatment from the comfort of our Lee’s Summit office. Using laser fiber technology and laser light, our venous disease specialists safely seal the veins. This procedure is 95-98% effective, and you’ll likely leave our vein clinic satisfied with the results.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy, also referred to as “ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy,” is another less invasive procedure that is often preferable to surgery. In this procedure, we seal under-the-surface veins that would otherwise require surgery. This treatment method involves using a tiny needle to inject medication into varicose and spider veins, causing them to collapse. As the veins reabsorb into the body, they are no longer visible, and symptoms are relieved.

Spider Vein Treatment

Just as the name suggests, spider veins have an arachnid-like appearance. Similar to varicose veins, spider veins result from hindered the blood flow of damaged veins. However, spider veins are typically smaller, having a more colorful, superficial appearance. That being said, spider veins can be much more than just a cosmetic nuisance; they can also cause leg pain and signal a more serious health concern. When treating spider veins, we often use sclerotherapy, which is the same procedure used to eradicate varicose veins, but we also use Laser Vein Therapy – Nd:YAG™.

Laser Vein Therapy – Nd:YAG™

Laser Therapy is a recommended spider vein treatment for deeper, blue, hard-to-reach veins. With the use of precise energy and light wavelength, spider veins can be dissolved and reabsorbed by the body. The treatment is safe and can eliminate the appearance and symptoms of damaged veins. This can be an effective option for those who have found other treatments to be ineffective.
