Suffering from Painful Veins? A Look at Today's Most Advanced Vein Treatments

Do you have small varicose veins and spider veins that make you feel self-conscious? Can they also be painful at times? The good news is that you really don't have to carry on and suffer through them thanks to the various vein treatments available today. What's even better is that these treatments have moved away from the traditional painful surgical procedures that used to be the only options available.

For those looking for a solution to their vein problems, here’s a look at some of the most popular vein treatments available today.

Compression Therapy

When it comes to a simple, non-invasive vein treatment, compression therapy can be a great option. In this treatment, medical compression stockings are used to compress the legs. What this does is ensure that the blood returns to the heart. They may be used on their own or as part of the healing process after another vein treatment.

Varicocele Treatment/Embolization

This procedure makes use of a catheter that is image-guided and injects embolic fluid into the blood vessel. What this does is move the blood flow from the problematic vein. There is no incision needed and the recovery time is much faster than with surgery. As well, this procedure has a 90% success rate.

Sclerotherapy Treatment

In this treatment, chemicals are injected into the veins in order to cause damage to the inner lining. This damage then results in a blood clot, which is then reabsorbed so that the vessel is destroyed permanently. This treatment tends to work best on small veins. This procedure can be used for small spider veins that are painful, or just for cosmetic reasons.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

In this treatment, the patient will receive a numbing agent on the skin and the vein so that a small catheter can be put into the vein. The medical professional uses an ultrasound to guide the catheter and then treats the vein with a laser. The end result is that the vein closes up so it is no longer a problem. What’s great about this option is that patients usually feel instant relief.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

This particular procedure is usually used in conjunction with venous ablation. This one is classed as "minimally invasive", which means it's quite simple from the patient's perspective. This procedure works best on veins that are bulging. The offending vein is removed through a small incision that is made on the vein path. A local anesthesia is used, and there are no stitches necessary. There is no need to wait and see the results, as the results are immediate, which also means immediate relief.

A Wide Variety of Solutions


Each of these methods offers patients non-invasive ways of dealing with veins that are unsightly, bulging, and/or painful. It’s best to make an appointment with a medical professional to discuss which option would provide you with the best results with the least amount of down-time on your end.
