- Step 2: Use vascular imaging to determine if you have underlying vein disease.

Step 1: Look for spider veins, varicose veins, and other symptoms of vein disease during the initial consultation.
Before treating varicose veins, our spider vein specialist will look for all the signs and symptoms of vein disease, including spider veins, varicose veins, restless leg syndrome, leg heaviness, etc. Our board-certified vein doctor will physically and visually examine your veins and skin. If you’re experiencing any odd sensations, such as restless legs, frequent leg cramps, or leg heaviness, you must mention them to our vein specialist.
The vein doctor must look for the symptoms of vein disease because it helps them curate the ideal treatment plan. Venous insufficiency is a dangerous circulatory disorder in which your vein valves collapse and blood accumulate in your leg veins. This leads to spider veins, varicose veins, and other vein disease symptoms. If the vein doctor treats spider veins without treating the underlying vein disease, the spider veins may return later.
Step 2: Use vascular imaging to determine if you have underlying vein disease.
After the physical and visual examination, our vein doctor will administer a vascular imaging test called Duplex Ultrasound. During this test, our vein doctor will use ultrasound to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. People with venous insufficiency have venous reflux, i.e., blood flowing in the opposite direction. This will allow our vein doctor to confirm if you have venous insufficiency.

Step 3: Discussion of your minimally invasive treatment options and insurance coverage.
Our vein specialist will discuss your treatment options based on the diagnosis and vascular imaging results. If you have venous insufficiency, our vein doctor will recommend minimally invasive varicose vein treatments, including radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.
If you have spider veins, without underlying vein disease, our vein doctor will recommend minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, such as sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy. Our vein doctor will describe all the treatment options, along with insurance coverage details, so you can make an informed decision.
Step 4: Treating varicose veins and vein disease with minimally invasive vein treatment.
The best minimally invasive procedures for treating varicose veins are radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.
During these vein treatments, our vein doctor will create an incision on your skin and insert a catheter, laser fiber, or injection into the diseased saphenous vein, as identified through vascular imaging. Following that, our vein doctor will deliver thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives into the diseased vein, collapsing or shutting it down. The accumulated blood will flow to healthier veins, treating vein disease.
All minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are non-surgical, cause minimal pain or discomfort, have a 97% success rate, and carry a negligible risk of side effects. Furthermore, minimally invasive vein treatments are in-office and outpatient procedures that conclude within an hour with no downtime or hospitalization.
Step 5: Removing the visible varicose veins and spider veins with minimally invasive spider veins treatment.
After the primary vein treatment, your vein specialist may recommend treating varicose and spider veins with ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy. This isn’t “medically” necessary because the superficial varicose veins and spider veins are harmless without underlying vein disease. However, visible varicose veins and spider veins can lead to considerable self-consciousness and social anxiety, so we highly recommend treating varicose veins with cosmetic procedures.
During ambulatory phlebectomy, the vein doctor will remove the visible varicose veins through incisions on the skin. During sclerotherapy, the vein doctor will inject a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins, turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body and fade away. Ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy are only suitable for those who don’t have underlying venous insufficiency.
