From the various forms of sclerotherapy to traditional vein ligation surgery, DoctorQA features information about all the latest technologies used to treat varicose veins and spider veins. Advances in ultrasound technology have allowed interventional radiologists to throw out risky procedures and replace them with minimally invasive techniques that are just as effective. In fact, varicose vein removal with procedures such as microphlebectomy and endovenous laser ablation can treat your varicose veins with no need for stitches and hardly any risk of scarring.

Most forms of vein treatment require little to no sedation, and the recovery time for every procedure is relatively short. After a few minutes of sclerotherapy, the appearance of many varicose veins is significantly improved, so that you no longer have to suffer from dark lines and unattractive lumps caused by swollen veins. Moreover, vein doctors have developed ways to make sclerotherapy treatment even more precise and effective with procedures such as foam sclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy.

Using DoctorQA’s ask form, you can submit a specific question to a vein doctor listed in your community before contacting him or her for an appointment.
