One of the most common signs of vein disease is a varicose vein. When there is venous insufficiency, veins can become twisted and swollen. Varicose veins are often found on the calves or near the groin and may cause pain and discomfort. Unlike spider veins, which are primarily a cosmetic concern, varicose veins can lead to more serious health issues, including skin ulcers, bleeding and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). At The Vein Place, we offer advanced options in varicose vein treatment at our medical center in Santa Ana, CA.
Bulging veins in the leg can be a sign you have vein disease. Unfortunately, varicose veins are very common, especially among older people. Aging, genetics, weight and lifestyle can all contribute to vein disease, which can result in varicose veins and health complications. The good news is that varicose veins are treatable, and you can reduce your risk for DVT and other health issues with treatment. At The Vein Place, we offer painless, minimally invasive varicose vein procedures that are very effective.
Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)
One treatment for varicose veins in the legs is endovenous laser ablation (EVLA). This varicose vein procedure can be completed under local anesthetic at our clinic in Santa Ana. During this varicose vein treatment, a tiny laser fiber is inserted into the vein, and light energy is emitted into the vein. This heat causes the vein to close, and the body absorbs the disabled vein.
VenaSeal™ Varicose Vein Treatment
VenaSeal™ is a non-surgical and minimally invasive varicose vein treatment that offers an effective alternative to the surgical stripping of veins. We perform VenaSeal™ in our office under local anesthetic using our unique numbing system. VenaSeal™ uses a medical adhesive that is injected into the diseased vein, closing it. This is one of the safest, most effective long-term solutions available for varicose vein treatment.
Venefit™ Varicose Vein Removal
Venefit™ is an effective, safe and minimally invasive treatment option that closes diseased veins with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Like EVLA, a probe is inserted into the vein, but RF energy is used instead of light. Venefit™ effectively treats patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), including varicose veins.
Our vein specialist uses our advanced technology to provide consistent and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to shrink and seal the troublesome veins. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood will re-route itself to other healthy veins.
