Which Vein Procedure Is Best for Me?

If you have damaged veins that need treatment, our physicians at HeartCare Associates of Connecticut, LLC, can help you make the decision about the best vein procedure for you.

We offer a wide range of vein treatments to address venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and a variety of other vascular conditions. Our offices are also fully equipped with the latest diagnostic technologies to confirm your condition, so we know which treatment is right for you.

Evaluating your options for vein procedures

Our team at HeartCare Associates of Connecticut, LLC, has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular conditions. The vein procedure you need will depend on the condition you have and its severity.

Here’s an overview of common conditions we can address and what we use to treat them.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins are enlarged, bulging veins that most often form in your legs. When blood pools in your veins because of valvular dysfunction, it causes your veins to swell. Your risk for varicose veins increases due to aging, obesity, and smoking.

Varicose veins can become painful, and many people wish to treat them because of how they change the appearance of your legs.

Options for treating varicose veins include:

We can also recommend compression stockings to improve blood circulation in your legs to prevent additional varicose veins.

Spider veins

Spider veins are small, red or blue veins that you can see just under the surface of your skin. These veins aren’t usually harmful to your health, but you may want to treat them to improve the aesthetic of your legs.

Treatment for spider veins might include laser therapy to destroy damaged veins and compression stockings to prevent them from returning.

Venous insufficiency

Venous insufficiency describes issues that prevent healthy blood flow from the veins in your leg to your heart.

Treatment options for venous insufficiency include:

  • Medications
  • Sclerotherapy
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Laser therapy

We also offer topical creams that help soothe your legs and improve the health of your skin.

When to seek treatment for vein conditions

You can schedule a consultation at the vein center of HeartCare Associates of Connecticut, LLC, if you have noticeable spider veins or varicose veins you want to treat.

You should also schedule a diagnostic evaluation for other symptoms of venous insufficiency or vascular disorders, including:

  • Leg aches or pain
  • Leg heaviness
  • Restless legs
  • Skin discoloration
  • Frequent muscle cramps

We offer on-site diagnostic testing services to evaluate the health of your veins and the efficiency of your overall blood circulation.

Once we understand the nature of your condition, our experienced vein experts will discuss your options for treatment. We also review your medical history and existing health conditions to ensure you’re able to tolerate the recommended treatment.

Without proper treatment, your vein condition can worsen over time and affect your long-term health. Not only can we diagnose and treat your vein issues, but we can also provide resources to improve your vein health and reduce your risk factors for vein damage.
