Conservative Therapy

The initial treatment option for varicose veins is conservative management. This includes compression stockings, exercise, leg elevation and weight loss. These approaches may provide temporary symptom relief but will not make the varicose veins go away or prevent them from worsening, as the underlying disease process of venous reflux has not been addressed. Most insurance companies require a documented period of wearing compression stockings in order to provide payment for procedures, usually a period of 1-3 months. Oceana Vein Specialists have multiple different styles of compression stockings available for purchase.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), also known as ‘The Closure Procedure” is a type of endovenous thermal ablation. RFA therapy involves inserting a small treatment catheter (similar to an IV) into the damaged vein and applying heat in order to close the vein. The goal in treatment is to close and shutdown the main superficial feeder vein in the leg (the great saphenous vein or the small saphenous vein). This procedure usually takes about an hour and in performed in our beautiful oceanview procedure suites. Patients can return to normal activity immediately after the procedure, and even return to work that same day.

Ambulatory Microphlebectomy

Ambulatory microphlebectomy is a procedure for treating surface varicose veins. Microphlebectomy involves actually removing the diseased vein through a series of tiny incisions. Oftentimes, microphlebectomy is performed after a patient has received radiofrequency ablation to treat the larger feeder veins of the leg (great saphenous and small saphenous veins). After RFA treatment, which is the first stage in treating varicose veins, there may be persistent varicose veins that did not resolve after the ablation procedure. Ambulatory microphlebectomy is an effective treatment option for removal of these stubborn surface varicose veins and performed in our beautiful oceanview procedure suites.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a technique to treat small and medium size veins by injecting a small volume of irritant into a vein, ultimately causing it to close up over time. Ultrasound guidance can be used for injection of medium size deeper veins which cannot easily been seen on the skin surface. Oftentimes sclerotherapy is required to treat remaining veins after a patient receives radiofrequency ablation of the main feeder vein in the leg. Sclerotherapy procedure is performed in our beautiful oceanview procedure suites and usually takes 30-40 minutes per session. Patients can return to normal activity immediately after treatment, and even return to work that same day.

Cosmetic Spider Vein Treatments

The two treatments Oceana Vein Specialists offers for surface spider veins are sclerotherapy and the VeinGogh Spider Vein Treatment System. Both of these techniques are highly effective in removal of unwanted spider veins with minimal patient discomfort. Oftentimes, a combination of both sclerotherapy and VeinGogh treatment will be used in order to fully treat these tiny surface spider veins. Spider veins often require 2-3 treatment sessions in order to fully treat an area, as the spider veins slowly disappear over time.

Spider Vein Sclerotherapy

Spider veins are the tiny surface veins on the skin. They usually spread out on the skin in a spider web type pattern and can be a source of cosmetic concern for patients. There are several techniques that Oceana Vein Specialists use in order to treat these surface spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a technique to treat surface spider veins by injecting a tiny volume of irritant into the vein, ultimately causing it to close up over time. Sclerotherapy for spider veins is a simple and quick procedure that is performed right in our office at Oceana Vein Specialists.

VeinGogh Spider Vein Treatment

The VeinGogh Spider Vein Treatment is an effective way to treat surface spider veins that are too small to be injected by sclerotherapy. This is often the last step in a multi-tiered treatment program once all of the larger unsightly veins have been treated. VeinGogh can safely treat any skin type and color, including tanned skin. The VeinGogh Spider Vein Treatment takes about 20-30 minutes and is highly effective in treating these small surface spider veins.

VenaSeal Closure Procedure

VenaSeal Closure Procedure is the newest treatment that we offer at Oceana Vein Specialists. VenaSeal only requires 1 needle stick and only a small amount of local lidocaine for numbing. A small amount of adhesive is injected within the diseased vein, effectively closing the vein and shutting down blood flow to that vein. The VenaSeal procedure is very well tolerated and take approximately 45 minutes in our office. The most exciting thing about VenaSeal is there is no need to wear compression stockings after the procedure!

Venous Ulcer Treatment

Ulcers of the lower legs may be due to an underlying venous condition, in fact 70-90% of all lower extremity ulcers are due to an underlying venous condition. Oceana Vein Specialists are experts in diagnosing the cause of a lower extremity ulcer as well as treating the underlying vein condition. Venous ulcers heal much faster once the underlying venous reflux is corrected. Typically, a venous ulcer has an associated perforator vein, which is a vein that communicated high pressure deep venous blood to the surface of the skin, causing skin breakdown over time. Oceana Vein Specialists treat the underlying vein reflux, as well as treat underlying perforator veins using the ClosureRFS Stylet.
