Veins, Veins … Go Away …
Spider veins, varicose veins, and broken capillaries affect most women at some point in their lives. These veins are not only undesirable from a cosmetic perspective, but they can also be uncomfortable and lead to future complications if left untreated. The Vein Clinic at PWC offers several state-of-the-art procedures for varicose and spider vein treatment in Portland, OR. Some of your options includes:
- Sclerotherapy: this procedure involves injecting a sclerosing solution into the unwanted veins, which causes the veins to collapse, rerouting blood through healthier valves. This is a great option for larger varicose veins.
- Radiofrequency Ablation: Radiofrequency Ablation is often preferred over traditional varicose vein surgery because it is minimally invasive and produces no scarring. Laser and ultrasound energy is used to help seal veins with little discomfort and a quick recovery.
- Laser-assisted spider vein removal: ideal for smaller spider veins or broken capillaries, laser-assisted spider vein removal uses thermal energy to target blood vessels in the face or legs. Results can be immediate and your treatment rarely requires downtime.
- Phlebectomy: this procedure removes large varicose veins near the surface of the skin that persist after treatments like EVLT. A local anesthesia is injected into the skin and then bulging veins are removed through small incisions.
