How Long Does Varicose Vein Treatment Last?

Varicose veins can be uncomfortable and unsightly, affecting your ability to remain active. Fortunately, there are several advanced procedures to eliminate them for good. But how long do these treatments last? Let’s find out.

What is a Varicose Vein?

A varicose vein is a swollen or enlarged vein that becomes visible through the skin, typically on the lower legs or feet. It happens because blood vessel valves fail to control the flow of blood, causing it to pool and swell. 

Dr. Vargas and the team at The Vascular Experts Florida understand that varicose veins aren’t solely a cosmetic issue. They are often a sign of venous insufficiency, a condition where blood cannot flow effectively back to the heart. Blood pooling in the lower legs can cause discomfort and additional swelling, especially of the calf and ankle. Thankfully, the friendly staff at The Vascular Experts Florida offer treatment for them.

Varicose Vein Treatments

The Vascular Experts Florida offers several varicose vein treatments that help to remove problematic blood vessels entirely. 

Sclerotherapy is a popular treatment that involves injecting an FDA-approved solution that collapses the walls of unwanted blood vessels, causing them to close up and be recycled. 

Microphlebectomy is another effective procedure. Here, Dr. Vargas physically removes superficial veins from the body through a small aperture without the need for major surgery. Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLT) is also an option. This procedure involves inserting a laser-tipped catheter into unwanted veins, scarring their interior walls so that the body recycles them.

How Long Will Varicose Vein Treatments Last?

Varicose vein treatments are permanent, meaning that the veins you treat won’t return. However, you may continue to experience vascular issues if you don’t follow a heart-healthy lifestyle, so we recommend continuing healthy practices, such as eating a high-quality diet and engaging in regular physical activity. 

Benefits of Varicose Vein Treatments

Here are some of the benefits of varicose vein treatments from Dr. Vargas and the team: 

  • Reduction of pain and discomfort: Less pooling of blood lowers blood pressure and impingement on vascular and other tissues
  • Improved appearance: Eliminates unsightly protruding veins permanently (however, it does not guarantee that new ones will not appear)
  • Minimally-invasive: Some treatments require small incisions, while we can deliver others, such as laser ablation, through a tiny pin prick hole. 
  • No downtime: Get back to your regular schedule almost immediately after treatment. 
  • Treat a large number of veins: Eliminate all the varicose veins causing you trouble in a single session. 

Do I Need to Treat my Varicose Veins?

Whether you need treatment for your varicose veins is a personal decision, based on how they affect your lifestyle and wellbeing. If they cause you pain and discomfort, you may want to choose one of our procedures to eliminate them. For instance, sometimes varicose veins can cause discomfort during exercise, making you more sedentary. Given how critical it is to be active for overall health and wellbeing, you may wish to seriously consider getting them treated.
