I Want to Get Rid of My Varicose Veins. Can You Help?

Varicose veins are large, twisting, rope-like veins that most commonly develop in the legs. Because of their unsightly appearance, it’s understandable to want a solution. But there’s another reason to treat varicose veins: They’re a sign that the vein valves in your legs aren’t functioning as well as they should.

Treating varicose veins not only improves the appearance of your legs, but also improves your vascular health. You can trust the experts at CA Heart and Vein Specialists to eliminate your varicose veins and help you maintain good vascular health and help you feel good about the appearance of your legs again.

Dr. Majed Chane and our team offer the latest solutions for safely and effectively eliminating varicose veins. Here’s how we can help.

Why do I have varicose veins? 

Varicose veins develop when one-way valves in the veins in your legs weaken and fail to keep blood flowing efficiently toward your heart. The weak or damaged vein valves allow blood to accumulate and pool in the leg veins.

Over time, the increased pressure from pooling blood weakens vein walls causing the veins near the surface of the skin to bulge and twist and take on an unsightly raised appearance.

Anyone can develop varicose veins, but you’re more likely to develop them if you have factors that increase the pressure in the veins of your legs, such as:

Some people have a genetic predisposition for developing varicose veins, meaning it may be more likely for you to develop them if you have a close relative with varicose veins.

How we can help get rid of varicose veins

Fortunately, advances in vein therapy mean there are multiple ways to eliminate varicose veins. Our varicose vein treatment options use different methods to eradicate bad veins. The body then reroutes blood to healthy veins. 

VenaSeal

VenaSeal is the newest approach for getting rid of varicose veins. This minimally invasive vein closure system uses a medical adhesive to seal off damaged veins so the body diverts blood to other veins. Treatment with VenaSeal requires only one injection, which reduces pain and bruising so you recover quickly.

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is another minimally invasive option. This approach uses heat to close off blood flow to varicose veins. A thin, flexible tube (called a catheter) directs heat energy to seal the problem vein. Like VenaSeal, this method causes less bruising and pain than other traditional treatment options.

Mechano-chemical ablation

Mechano-chemical ablation (MOCA) involves using a solution called a sclerosant to irritate the bad vein, causing it to collapse. Using ultrasound guidance, the solution is injected through a catheter into the target vein.

Microphlebectomy

During microphlebectomy, Dr. Chane removes varicose veins through tiny skin incisions. This method can be used in conjunction with other removal procedures to address different sized varicose veins.

Get healthier, better-looking legs
