Varicose Vein Treatment

Underlying Problem Requiring Vein Treatment:
Individuals who suffer from varicose veins may choose to undergo vein treatment to reduce discomfort and appearance. Varicose veins are those that have become twisted or are enlarged, and they are most often found on the legs. Sometimes they are referred to as 'spider veins'. They may be a result of the valves in the vessels of the legs allowing blood to flow backwards or to become trapped in the veins. This seems to be most common on the superficial veins of the legs and therefore does not necessarily affect the overall flow of blood. Varicose veins are generally considered to be unattractive, but they can also cause significant medical problems including skin ulcers, dermatitis, carcinoma and sarcoma, blood clotting, and severe bleeding. Not all require vein treatment, so it is beneficial for those suffering from varicose veins to consult with their doctors to determine if anything needs to be done.


There are a number of vein treatments, ranging from non-invasive to interventional. The simplest forms of treatment include wearing support hose or compression stockings, taking anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, and elevating the legs often throughout the day. Other vein treatments may be performed by a doctor.

One of the most common vein treatments is "stripping," in which the damage veins are removed from the groin to the ankle. Because the affected veins are usually a small percentage on the surface, vein stripping can be performed without causing interfering excessively with the body's blood flow. Patients may also find that they can be treated through the use of injected medications. This is referred to as "sclerotherapy" and the medication used will shrink the veins. Other options include laser surgery, ambulatory phlebectomy, endoscopic vein surgery, and catheter-assisted procedures.

Recovering from Vein Treatment:

Because the range of vein treatments is so wide, it is difficult to pinpoint the recovery process and timeframe. It will depend upon the type of vein treatment sought. Those that are the least invasive will require the least amount of recovery time. Of course, the healthcare team will provide patients with information and instructions regarding recovery and follow-up care.
