If you’re a Maryland resident struggling with vein issues, you’re not alone. Vein problems, such as spider veins and varicose veins, can be both physically uncomfortable and cosmetically concerning. However, the good news is that modern medicine has made significant advancements in the field of vein treatments. At Maryland Vein Center, led by board-certified vein doctors, we specialize in minimally invasive vein treatments to provide effective relief with minimal discomfort and downtime. In this guide, we’ll explore the various minimally invasive vein treatment options available to Maryland residents.

Are you looking for the most effective minimally invasive vein treatment options for Maryland residents. From sclerotherapy to VenaSeal, Maryland Vein Center offers the most advanced vein treatments.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a highly effective minimally invasive vein treatment offered at Maryland Vein Center. This procedure is primarily used to treat spider veins and small varicose veins. During sclerotherapy, a specialized solution is injected directly into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade away. Sclerotherapy is a safe and virtually painless outpatient procedure, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their legs.

How It’s Done

During a sclerotherapy session, you’ll be comfortably seated or lying down. Your vein specialist will use a fine needle to inject the sclerosing solution directly into the targeted veins. This solution irritates the vein walls, causing them to seal shut. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward. Over the following weeks, the treated veins will gradually fade, leaving you with smoother, more attractive legs.

Benefits:

  • Highly effective for spider veins and small varicose veins.
  • Minimally invasive with little to no discomfort.
  • Performed as an outpatient procedure.
  • Quick treatment sessions (usually under 30 minutes).
  • No downtime; return to regular activities right away.
  • Gradual fading of treated veins for improved leg appearance.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

Endovenous Laser Ablation, or EVLA, is a cutting-edge minimally invasive treatment used to address larger varicose veins at Maryland Vein Center. This procedure employs laser energy to seal the affected vein shut. By inserting a thin laser fiber directly into the problematic vein under ultrasound guidance, EVLA causes the vein to collapse and be naturally absorbed by the body. EVLA is highly effective, with minimal discomfort and a brief recovery period.

How It’s Done

During an EVLA procedure, you’ll be comfortably positioned, and local anesthesia will be administered. Your skilled vein specialist will then insert the laser fiber into the problematic vein using ultrasound guidance. The laser energy is precisely delivered, sealing the vein as the fiber is slowly withdrawn. The entire process typically takes less than an hour, allowing you to resume your daily activities shortly afterward. This advanced technique offers significant relief from varicose vein symptoms.

Benefits:

  • Highly effective for treating larger varicose veins.
  • Minimally invasive with minimal discomfort.
  • Performed as an outpatient procedure.
  • Typically completed in under an hour.
  • Quick recovery and ability to return to regular activities.
  • Excellent long-term results in alleviating varicose vein symptoms.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive vein treatment at Maryland Vein Center. RFA is specifically designed to address varicose veins. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and close off the problematic vein. By introducing a specialized catheter into the vein, the radiofrequency energy is applied, causing the vein to seal shut. RFA offers an effective solution for varicose veins with minimal discomfort and a swift recovery.

How It’s Done

During an RFA procedure, you’ll receive local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Your vein specialist will guide a catheter into the targeted vein using ultrasound imaging. Once positioned correctly, radiofrequency energy is applied through the catheter, heating the vein wall and causing it to collapse. The catheter is slowly withdrawn, sealing the vein as it goes. The entire process typically takes less than an hour, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly afterward. RFA offers long-term relief from varicose vein symptoms.

Benefits:

  • Highly effective for treating varicose veins.
  • Minimally invasive procedure with minimal discomfort.
  • Performed as an outpatient treatment.
  • Typically completed in less than an hour.
  • Swift recovery and ability to return to regular activities.
  • Proven long-term results in alleviating varicose vein symptoms.

VenaSeal

VenaSeal is a revolutionary minimally invasive vein treatment available at Maryland Vein Center. This innovative procedure uses a medical adhesive to seal problematic veins, effectively closing them off. VenaSeal is a painless and quick treatment option for varicose veins, providing immediate relief from symptoms and improving the overall health of your legs.

How It’s Done

During a VenaSeal procedure, you’ll remain comfortable. Your skilled vein specialist will guide a catheter into the affected vein using ultrasound imaging. Once in place, the medical adhesive is applied, sealing the vein shut. The catheter is slowly withdrawn, and the adhesive hardens, permanently closing the vein. The entire procedure is usually completed in under an hour, and you can return to your regular activities immediately. You don’t even need to wear compression stockings after VenaSeal treatment.

Benefits:

  • Highly effective for treating varicose veins.
  • Performed without the need for anesthesia.
  • Quick treatment sessions, often completed in under an hour.
  • Immediate relief from varicose vein symptoms.
  • Minimal downtime, allowing you to return to regular activities right away.
  • Durable, long-lasting results in improving vein health and leg comfort.
  • No need for compression stockings after the treatment.
  • Doesn’t involve thermal energy, so the risk of nerve injury is minimal.

ClariVein

ClariVein is a unique and minimally invasive vein treatment option available at Maryland Vein Center. This procedure combines mechanical and chemical ablation techniques to address problematic veins effectively. During ClariVein, a rotating wire tip inside the affected vein delivers a special medication, causing the vein to close. ClariVein offers excellent results with minimal discomfort and a brief recovery period.

How It’s Done

During a ClariVein procedure, you’ll be comfortably positioned, and local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort. A specialized catheter with a rotating wire tip is inserted into the targeted vein. As the catheter rotates, it disperses a medication that irritates the vein’s walls, causing it to seal shut. The catheter is withdrawn, effectively closing the vein. ClariVein typically takes less than an hour to complete, allowing you to return to your daily activities shortly afterward. This advanced technique offers outstanding results.

Benefits:

  • Effective treatment for problematic veins.
  • Minimally invasive with minimal discomfort.
  • No need for general anesthesia; local anesthesia suffices.
  • Quick procedure, often completed in less than an hour.
  • Swift recovery and ability to resume normal activities shortly after.
  • Combines mechanical and chemical ablation for enhanced results.
  • Excellent outcomes in treating large, tortuous varicose veins.

Varithena

Varithena is a specialized foam sclerotherapy treatment available at Maryland Vein Center. This innovative procedure is designed to address varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Varithena foam is injected into the problematic veins, causing them to collapse and close. This minimally invasive approach offers a safe and effective solution for managing varicose vein symptoms, providing patients with relief from discomfort and improved leg health.

How It’s Done

During a Varithena procedure, you’ll be comfortably positioned, and your vein specialist will use ultrasound guidance to precisely locate the problematic veins. Varithena foam is then injected directly into these veins. The foam irritates the vein walls, causing them to seal shut. This process typically takes less than an hour and is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to return to your daily activities shortly after the treatment. Varithena effectively alleviates varicose vein symptoms and enhances your overall leg health.

Benefits:

  • Effective treatment for varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).
  • Minimally invasive procedure with little to no discomfort.
  • Performed on an outpatient basis.
  • Typically completed in under an hour.
  • Quick recovery, enabling you to resume daily activities shortly after treatment.
  • Improved leg health, with relief from varicose vein symptoms.
  • Enhanced overall vascular well-being and cosmetic appearance of your legs.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a specialized minimally invasive surgical technique available at Maryland Vein Center. This procedure is primarily used to remove small, superficial varicose veins. During ambulatory phlebectomy, tiny incisions are made in the skin, through which the problematic veins are carefully removed using specialized instruments. Ambulatory phlebectomy offers a targeted and effective approach to treating varicose veins, resulting in minimal scarring and improved aesthetics.

How It’s Done

During an ambulatory phlebectomy, you’ll be comfortably positioned, and your vein specialist will mark the veins to be removed. Small, strategically placed incisions will be made along the path of these veins. Special hooks or micro-extraction tools are then used to gently remove the veins. The incisions are so tiny that they typically do not require stitches. This minimally invasive technique offers a swift recovery with minimal scarring, helping you achieve smoother legs.

Benefits:

  • Effective treatment for small, superficial varicose veins.
  • Minimally invasive surgical technique.
  • Tiny incisions result in minimal scarring.
  • Typically performed under local anesthesia.
  • Swift recovery with no need for stitches in most cases.
  • Improved leg aesthetics, providing smoother skin.
  • Targeted removal of problematic veins for enhanced cosmetic results.
