A vein center is a specialized medical center that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of vein-related conditions, such as spider veins and varicose veins. Vein centers usually offer minimally invasive treatments that aim to relieve symptoms and improve the appearance of veins. At Maryland Vein Center, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive vein care that is personalized to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Minimally Invasive Treatments for Spider Veins and Varicose Veins

Spider veins and varicose veins are common vein-related conditions that can affect the legs and cause discomfort, pain, and embarrassment. Many minimally invasive treatments can alleviate these symptoms and improve the appearance of affected veins.

At Maryland Vein Center, we specialize in minimally invasive treatments for spider veins and varicose veins. These treatments are designed to be less invasive and require shorter recovery times than traditional surgical procedures. Our vein specialists use the latest techniques to provide safe and effective treatments that are tailored to the unique needs of each patient.

  • Sclerotherapy: Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a solution into the affected vein, causing it to collapse and eventually disappear. This treatment is often used for smaller veins and spider veins. During the procedure, a solution is injected into the vein using a small needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and eventually be reabsorbed by the body.
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation: Endovenous laser ablation is another minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to heat and seal off the affected vein. This treatment is often used for larger veins. During the procedure, a small catheter is inserted into the affected vein. A laser fiber is then inserted into the catheter and used to heat and seal the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation: Radiofrequency ablation is similar to endovenous laser ablation but uses radiofrequency energy instead of laser energy. During the procedure, a small catheter is inserted into the affected vein. Radiofrequency energy is then delivered through the catheter, heating and sealing the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body.
  • VenaSeal: VenaSeal is a treatment that uses a medical adhesive to seal off the affected vein. This treatment is often used for larger veins. During the procedure, a small catheter is inserted into the affected vein. The medical adhesive is then delivered through the catheter and used to seal the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body.
  • ClariVein: ClariVein is a treatment that uses a catheter to deliver a sclerosing solution and mechanical agitation to the affected vein. This treatment is often used for larger veins. During the procedure, a small catheter is inserted into the affected vein. A sclerosing solution is then delivered through the catheter, followed by mechanical agitation to help the solution spread evenly throughout the vein. This causes the vein to collapse and be reabsorbed by the body.
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy: Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves removing the affected vein through small incisions in the skin. This treatment is often used for larger veins. During the procedure, small incisions are made in the skin, and the affected vein is removed using a special tool. The incisions are then closed with sutures or adhesive strips.

Diagnosing the Root Cause of Spider Veins and Varicose Veins

At Maryland Vein Center, we understand that every patient’s vein condition is unique, and we believe in diagnosing the root cause of spider veins and varicose veins before developing a personalized treatment plan. Our board-certified vein doctors use advanced imaging techniques, such as vascular imaging and duplex ultrasound, to get a clear picture of the patient’s blood vessels.

This allows us to identify any underlying issues that may be contributing to the development of spider veins and varicose veins, such as chronic venous insufficiency or deep vein thrombosis. With this information, we can create a tailored treatment plan that addresses the root cause of the problem and provides the best possible outcome for the patient.

Board-Certified Vein Doctors & Free Insurance Verification

Our vein centers are led by board-certified vein doctors who have years of experience in the field of vein care. Our doctors have a deep understanding of the anatomy and function of the circulatory system and are skilled in using the latest techniques and technologies to provide effective and safe treatments.

At Maryland Vein Center, we understand that navigating the health system can be confusing and overwhelming. That’s why we offer free insurance verification even before the first appointment. This ensures that patients know exactly what their insurance covers and what their out-of-pocket expenses will be.

Compression Stockings

In addition to minimally invasive treatments, we also recommend the use of compression stockings to aid in the recovery process. Compression stockings are specially designed to help improve circulation and prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a potentially serious condition that occurs when blood clots form in the deep veins of the legs. Wearing compression stockings can also help reduce swelling and discomfort after vein treatments.
