Varicose Veins occur when the valves in the veins no longer function, causing blood to pool. Often misunderstood as a cosmetic issue, varicose veins can sometimes progress to CVI, which is a more serious condition.

The ClosureFast™ procedure uses controlled and consistent heat delivered by the ClosureFast™ catheter to seal the diseased vein.  Once the vein is sealed, blood is rerouted to nearby healthy veins.

The VenaSeal™ closure system delivers a small amount of proprietary medical adhesive to the diseased vein. The adhesive seals the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.

Duplex ultrasound is a non-invasive evaluation of blood flow through your veins. This test gives Dr Jones information to make a sound diagnosis and outline a treatment plan. Accuracy is critical, so ultrasound testing will always be performed.

This is an office base technique that uses extremely small incisions to remove superficial large veins. It is a short -minimally invasive procedure . The recovery time is very fast.

Spider veins, which often cover the legs, are damaged veins that appear to be similar to varicose veins, only thinner. Appearing red or blue in color and like thin spider webs or branches, these veins are closer to the surface of the skin and can spread over a range of areas.

Is an office base procedure to treat spider veins and reticular veins. A solution is injected into the vein which shrinks it and allows the body to naturally absorb the vein. Typical procedure time is 30 minutes. There is no down time. Resume activity immediately after.

What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can be blue, red or flesh colored.
They are often raised above the skin on legs and look like twisted bulging cords.

What causes varicose veins?

They occur when the valves in the veins no longer function, causing blood to pool. Often misunderstood as a cosmetic issue, varicose veins can sometimes progress to CVI, which is a more serious condition.(1) This condition does not resolve on its own.

What is chronic venous insufficiency?

CVI is a progressive medical condition in which the valves that regulate blood flow direction from the legs to the heart no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs and veins to swell. Healthy leg veins are designed to allow blood to flow against gravity from the legs back toward the heart. Tiny valves inside the veins open and close to help control the flow and pressure. CVI occurs when stresses on the venous system – like pregnancy, age or standing for long periods of time(2) – weaken the vein structure. When the veins become weakened or diseased, vein valves no longer promote efficient blood flow and blood pools in the legs. This impaired blood flow (or reflux) causes veins to expand, lose form and protrude from beneath the skin.

Is There a Long Recovery?

NO.  Most patients go back to work the same day.  We do require you to go back to normal activity.  Walking is encouraged.

Are There Any Risks or Complications?

Every medical procedure has potential risk and complications. Dr Jones will determine and discuss with you, your level of risk and potential complications.  

How Common Is It?

May affect up to 50% of the U.S population!  More common in women (especially after multiple pregnancies) and in people who are middle-aged or older.  Prolonged sitting or standing are also risk factors.

If left untreated?

Can lead to symptoms of restless legs, achy and painful legs, blood clots, and skin ulcers.

What Are The Symptoms?

•  Pain or heaviness in the legs
•  Large veins “snake like”
•  Muscle cramping of fatigue (primarily in the evening)
•  Itching or burning
•  More severe disease
•  Ankle swelling
•  Skin damage and ulcerations
•  Blood clots
•  Bleeding

Is The Treatment Painful?

NO.  It’s a short  office base procedure that uses local anesthestic similar to what a dentist would use.  The procedure uses radiofrequency ablation to seal off the problem vein so the blood gets rerouted to the other many veins in the leg. This allows blood flow to be properly restored by closing off the diseased vein.

Venous Closure

Varicose veins are often misunderstood as a cosmetic problem and many people living with them do not seek treatment.  The good news is that there are minimally invasive treatment options available for varicose veins and CVI.

 

ClosureFast™

The ClosureFast™ Procedure uses controlled and consistent heat delivered by the ClosureFast™ catheter to seal the diseased vein.  Once the vein is sealed, blood is rerouted to nearby healthy veins.

The ClosureFast™ procedure has been rigorously tested and proven across multiple studies and patients.

VenasealSystem

VenaSeal™

The VenaSeal™ closure system delivers a small amount of proprietary medical adhesive to the diseased vein.  The adhesive seals the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.

Three clinical studies demonstrate results that support the clinical safety and effectiveness of the VenaSeal™ closure system.

Ultrasound

Duplex ultrasound is a non-invasive evaluation of blood flow through your veins. This test gives Dr. Jones information to make a sound diagnosis and outline a treatment plan. Accuracy is critical, so ultrasound testing will always be performed.

After Procedure

There are no special instructions following a doppler ultrasound.

Microphlebectomy

This is an office base technique that uses extremely small incisions to remove superficial large veins. It is a short -minimally invasive procedure . The recovery time is very fast.

Where is it done?

This is an in office procedure. Approximately 1 hr.

Anesthesia Used?

Local anesthestic (similar to dentistry). No general anesthesia is needed.

Painful?

Minimal discomfort afterwards.

Down Time?

You can resume activity immediately.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins, which often cover the legs, are damaged veins that appear to be similar to varicose veins, only thinner. Appearing red or blue in color and like thin spider webs or branches, these veins are closer to the surface of the skin and can spread over a range of areas. Unlike varicose veins, spider veins are typically not raised above the skin’s surface. Spider veins can be treated with sclerotherapy or laser treatment. Though spider veins may be associated with varicose veins or CVI, the issue is seen as cosmetic and treatment is generally regarded as elective.

How Are They Treated?

Spider veins can be treated with sclerotherapy. Spider veins may be associated with varicose veins or CVI, and some individuals should undergo an ultrasound to determine the extent of their venous disease. Spider veins is seen as cosmetic and treatment is generally regarded as elective.

Sclerotherapy

Is an office base procedure to treat spider veins and reticular veins. A solution is injected into the vein which shrinks it and allows the body to naturally absorb the vein. Typical procedure time is 30 minutes.

After Procedure
