What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are large, visible, dilated veins that result from damaged valves. These veins no longer function to efficiently transport blood back to the heart. They cause pooling and stasis of blood which can lead to aching, burning, itching, restless leg syndrome and nocturnal cramping, as well as the sensation of having a heavy or tired leg. Typically, symptoms are worse at the end of the day and are relieved with walking. Severe pain in the calf or thigh that forces you to stop is called claudication and is a sign of arterial, not venous, disease.
Left untreated, varicose veins can lead to thrombophlebitis (clots in the veins), bleeding from veins, and chronic venous insufficiency. Chronic venous insufficiency can ultimately lead to skin changes and ulcerations or sores at the ankles that are difficult to heal.

What Are My Options for Varicose Vein Treatment?
Ageless Innovations offers injection sclerotherapy, endovenous laser therapy, transcutaneous laser therapy, ambulatory phlebectomy, and venous ulcer treatment. All procedures are performed in the office using local anesthesia and oral sedation. Intravenous sedation is available if needed.
We use the latest technology available, including a Treason t3000 ultrasound, CoolTouch 1320 nm laser (which results in less post-procedural pain and bruising), a Diomed 810nm laser, and Alma’s Harmony multi-wavelength laser and light platform, as well as the long pulsed Nd:YAG laser.
Are Minimally Invasive Treatments Available for Varicose Veins?
We offer minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins, such as:
Endovenous laser treatment. This process uses a combination of ultrasound imaging and laser energy to seal large varicose veins shut, thus guiding the blood into normal veins. It is performed in the office under local anesthesia with oral sedation. There is little downtime, and immediate ambulation is recommended after the procedure. An excellent resource about varicose vein disease treatment is available HERE. A video demonstrating the technique of endovenous vein ablation is shown below.
*Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. To treat larger, deeper varicosities not amenable to laser treatment, we use ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. In this procedure, a needle is introduced into the abnormal vein under ultrasound guidance. A sclerosant is then introduced, typically in a foamed form. This provides maximum accuracy and efficacy in the treatment of deeper veins. Insurance often covers this procedure.
*Ambulatory phlebectomy. This is a procedure that is typically performed in conjunction with endovenous laser treatment. The large bulky veins not amenable to the laser are removed through small puncture wounds. This is performed in the office under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Minimal, if any, scarring results with this procedure. This is usually covered by insurance.
*Treatment of venous leg ulcers. It has been clearly shown that some venous leg ulcers will heal with the treatment of abnormal superficial veins, even if previous treatment was unsuccessful. We offer a complete evaluation for venous disease and can offer minimally invasive treatment if indicated. This evaluation and treatment is covered by insurance.
