Frisco Spider Vein Treatment
For those living in the Frisco, TX, area who are experiencing painful spider vein problems, there’s no need to feel embarrassed or alone. More than 65 million Americans suffer from vein disorders such as varicose veins, spider veins and venous reflux disease. With more than 20 years of experience in vein treatment, Dr. Jerome Naifeh and his team at Total Vein Treatment Centers can offer effective surgical and non-invasive vein treatment solutions to meet your needs.
Relief of Spider Veins
Around 25 million people in the U.S. have venous reflux disease. But before you can find a treatment, the symptoms must be recognized and diagnosed. Patients in Frisco with leg pain, varicose veins, spider veins, leg swelling, skin changes or ulcers, leg fatigue, heaviness or throbbing legs, and similar symptoms should contact our experienced vein treatment doctor. Our vein care offices provide free consultation to evaluate a wide variety of vein conditions. After a complete exam, our vein specialist may recommend such procedures as compression therapy, sclerotherapy, phlebectomy and VNUS closure.
Prescription-strength compression hose provides the strongest support for legs with varicose veins or spider veins. Patients at Total Vein Treatment Centers are properly fitted for these by a trained associate as prescribed by Dr. Naifeh. In some cases, however, sclerotherapy can be a more effective solution.
Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment
When patients suffer from varicose veins, those malfunctioning veins usually need to be removed or closed in order to correct the flow of blood. Rather than high-impact vein stripping procedures with negative side effects, Dr. Naifeh prefers the less invasive sclerotherapy. Instead of surgery, we use chemical injections to close off varicose veins and spider veins, causing them to fade away. The procedure is non-surgical and does not require anesthesia.
Options available to Frisco vein patients may include:
- Foam sclerotherapy
- Phlebectomy for Varicose Vein Care
Another outpatient treatment available at Total Vein Treatment Centers is ambulatory phlebectomy. We surgically remove surface varicose veins through a tiny incision. Typically, only local anesthetic is needed. A needle is inserted near the varicose vein, which is removed through that hole, leaving almost no scar.
VNUS Closure near Frisco
Dr. Naifeh and his vein treatment team care for many Frisco patients with varicose veins, as well as those with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). We work to prevent varicose veins from advancing to CVI, which can bring on swelling, skin damage, sores and leg pain. A minimally invasive vein treatment that is proven effective on varicose veins and CVI is endovenous ablation, a VNUS Closure procedure using the Venefit™ method of radiofrequency ablation. These techniques can be done on an outpatient basis using only local anesthesia.
Health Insurance for Spider Vein Treatments
When patients are faced with vein disorders, they often deal with problems related to both self-image and health. Our vein specialists understand that some patients feel ashamed of how their veins look. But there is absolutely no need to delay getting medical help because you may assume your health insurance might not cover something “cosmetic.” Procedures at Total Vein Treatment Centers work with most major insurance plans including Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, and Medicare, both in-network or out-of-network, depending on your provider.
