If you had varicose veins before 2000’s, surgery was the only option for you. But now, there are minimally invasive varicose veins treatment options available for those who wish to treat their varicose veins. Yes, surgery is still an option and may be preferred in certain situations, but there are several minimally invasive approaches available:
A sclerosing, or scarring, agent is mixed with air and injected into the vein. This closes off the vein and redirects the blood flow away from the varicose veins.
This uses heat to destroy the vein from the inside and then redirects blood towards other, healthier veins. This treatment is commonly called LASER treatment.
Several small incisions, 2 – 3 mm or about 1/10 of an inch, are made in the skin to remove superficial veins. This is often performed along with an endovenous treatment.
VenaSeal Closure System

VenaSeal is a modern and advanced treatment for varicose veins where doctor uses a medical glue to close affected veins.
