Our Vein Treatment Centers in New Jersey Explain Your Top Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment Options

Are You Looking for the Best Vein Treatment in New Jersey? We Can Help!

We have compiled a comprehensive guide providing a detailed overview of the leading spider vein and varicose vein treatment options in New Jersey. We understand that the abundance of vein treatment modalities makes it difficult to choose the right vein treatments. Our vein experts guide you and help you select the ideal vein treatment for your specific needs.

Over the past three decades, modern technologies have helped vein treatments progress by leaps and bounds. No longer are we reliant solely on complex surgeries that require general anesthesia, hospitalization, downtime, and a high risk of complications. Now, our leading vein doctors can treat spider veins and varicose veins using minimally invasive procedures that are largely painless, comfortable, incredibly safe, and involve no downtime. Our comprehensive guide will provide a detailed description of all the available vein treatment options, including their pros and cons, and offer step-by-step instructions to help you choose the right vein treatment clinics in New Jersey.

However, before discussing your vein treatment options, we must explain some basics about spider veins and varicose veins. Healthy leg veins are responsible for carrying blood from the legs to the heart, traveling against the force of gravity (upwards). All leg veins contain flap-like valves that ensure one-way blood flow, resisting the gravitational pull. When your vein valves weaken for various reasons, blood flows backward and accumulates in the leg veins — a phenomenon known as chronic venous insufficiency. Spider veins and varicose veins are formed when the accumulation of blood in leg veins increases the venous pressure, making them swell, bulge, and dilate.

We believe chronic venous insufficiency is the true root cause of spider veins and varicose veins. As such, our vein doctors always diagnose the underlying vein disease to curate the ideal treatment plans for you. We believe the most effective vein treatments focus on the underlying venous insufficiency rather than the visible symptoms.

Your Vein Treatment Options

Endovenous Ablation

Also known as Ablation, Radiofrequency Ablation, and Laser Ablation

Treats the underlying vein disease and its symptoms, including varicose veins, leg heaviness, leg fatigue, discomfort, restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, and more…

What is endovenous ablation?

Endovenous ablation is a procedure wherein a medical device enters the diseased vein (endovenous) and destroys (ablation) its walls, rerouting the accumulated blood to healthier veins. We perform radiofrequency ablation (aka ClosureFAST, RF therapy, and RF ablation) using radiofrequency technology — sound waves that generate thermal energy to burn the diseased vein. We perform laser ablation (aka EVLT) using laser energy to burn the diseased vein.

We believe both endovenous ablation techniques are equally safe and effective at rerouting the accumulated blood to healthier leg veins. However, radiofrequency ablation causes less post-treatment discomfort and bruising. Ablation is performed as an in-office and outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, so you’re awake for the entire process, and you can resume your daily activities immediately.

How is endovenous ablation performed?

While performing endovenous ablation, your vein doctor will numb the skin’s surface and make a small incision to insert a tiny ultrasound-guided device into the diseased vein. Once the device is lodged in place, the vein doctor will surround the unhealthy vein with a numbing solution (tumescent anesthesia) for optimal comfort. Depending on the technique used, the device will produce sound waves (using radiofrequency technology) or light energy, which will convert into thermal energy or laser energy and burn the unhealthy vein’s walls. The accumulated blood will reroute into healthier leg veins, restoring effective blood circulation.

Pros:

We believe endovenous ablation is the most effective procedure to treat underlying chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins. It’s far safer than traditional surgical methods, such as vein stripping, and carries a negligible risk of complications. Furthermore, you can resume your daily activities immediately after endovenous ablation, so there’s no recovery time. Since it treats the underlying vein disease, it’s covered by most major insurance providers.

Pros Summary:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • No downtime
  • Insurance coverage

Cons:

Ablation can be performed using multiple devices and techniques, each leading to different results. Our vein treatment center in New Jersey is equipped with the latest cutting-edge technologies, such as ClosureFAST, to ensure optimal results. Our vein doctors have performed numerous ablation treatments without major complications.

Ablation involves tumescent anesthesia, i.e., your vein doctor injects an anesthetic solution to surround the diseased vein. Less experienced vein doctors often deliver multiple injections to cover the entire vein, whereas our experienced doctors can do so with fewer injections. As such, inexperienced vein doctors may cause more discomfort during the procedure, whereas our vein doctors ensure a safe and comfortable experience.

Cons Summary:

  • Results vary with multiple technologies
  • Must be performed by board-certified vein experts

Am I a suitable candidate for endovenous ablation?

You’re a suitable candidate for endovenous ablation if you have underlying vein disease and varicose veins. Generally speaking, most people qualify for the treatment because it’s covered by all major insurance plans. Your vein doctor will have their reasons to choose the radiofrequency or laser ablation technique, but we generally prefer RF therapy because it causes less post-treatment discomfort.

VenaSeal

Also known as Vein Glue

Treats the underlying vein disease and its symptoms, including leg heaviness, leg fatigue, discomfort, restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, and more…

What is venaseal?

VenaSeal is a cutting-edge technology that only recently received FDA approval to treat chronic venous insufficiency. Manufactured by a reliable scientific company called Medtronic, venaseal uses a medical adhesive called cyanoacrylate to seal the diseased vein’s walls. Cyanoacrylate is a well-established and time-tested medical-grade adhesive that’s been used for numerous vascular procedures, and now it can be used for vein treatments as well.

How is venaseal performed?

While performing venaseal, your vein doctor will use ultrasound technology to visualize the unhealthy veins on a screen. They’ll gently numb the skin’s surface and make an incision to insert a catheter — a tube-like delivery device containing the cyanoacrylate glue. Under ultrasound guidance, the catheter is driven into your diseased vein to inject the medical glue, making the unhealthy vein’s walls seal together. Once your vein is sealed shut, the accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins.

Pros:

VenaSeal reduces your risk of post-treatment swelling because it doesn’t involve tumescent anesthesia. This procedure is also suitable if you have diseased veins with multiple branches because the medical glue travels and coats all of them.

Pros Summary:

  • Treats recurrent vein disease
  • Cutting-edge technology
  • Minimizes post-treatment swelling

Cons:

VenaSeal is just a few years old, so we don’t yet know its long-term effects. Due to its relative newness, it’s not yet covered by most insurance providers, and it’s pretty expensive without insurance, so you might find this treatment inaccessible.

You should also know that there have been some early reports of allergic reactions to the medical glue used for venaseal. However, our vein doctors always check for allergies before the treatment to ensure your safety. The medical glue used for venaseal eventually hardens and stays within your body as an implant — it’s possible that you don’t like the idea of an implant.

Cons Summary:

  • Must be performed by reliable vein experts
  • Checking for allergies is essential
  • Not covered by all insurance plans
  • Long-term effects are unknown
  • Leaves a permanent medical implant

Am I a suitable candidate for venaseal?

You’re a suitable candidate for venaseal if you have a history of chronic venous insufficiency and have received treatments before. However, your vein doctor must determine if your specific insurance plan covers venaseal and run allergy tests to ensure safety.

Sclerotherapy

Also known as Cosmetic Sclerotherapy, Vein Injections, STS, Saline Injections, and Salt Solution Injections

Treats spider veins and superficial varicose veins

What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy refers to the injection of a special medication (sclerosant) into unhealthy veins. Sclerosant is a medication that irritates the diseased vein’s walls, making them shrink and turn into scar tissues eventually absorbed by the body. Over time, the spider veins become smaller and fade away from your skin.

Sclerotherapy has been around for decades, but the sclerosant medication used for the procedure has changed over time. Traditional sclerotherapy was performed using hypertonic saline, i.e., concentrated saltwater. While hypertonic saline was effective, it was also painful and uncomfortable. Numerous sclerosant medications are available right now — our vein treatment centers in NJ use solutions that cause no pain or discomfort.

How is sclerotherapy performed?

While performing sclerotherapy, your vein doctor will visually examine your spider veins or run ultrasound tests to visualize the deeper veins on a screen. The vein doctor will inject the chosen sclerosant medication into the individual spider veins and then use ultrasound guidance to inject the deeper veins. The procedure concludes within 15 to 30 minutes, following which you can resume your daily activities.

Pros:

We believe sclerotherapy can treat twisted veins that can’t be treated with ablation techniques or catheters. Furthermore, cosmetic sclerotherapy is the best treatment for visible spider veins without underlying vein disease. When performed correctly, we believe it’s far safer and more effective than laser therapy for spider veins.

Pros Summary:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • No downtime
  • Suitable for tortuous veins

Cons:

Sclerotherapy results depend greatly on the type of sclerosant medication used since each medication carries its unique advantages and disadvantages. Furthermore, the results also depend on using the correct dosage — your vein doctor must dilute the sclerosant medication with sterile water to achieve the ideal dosage.

With the wrong sclerosant medication or an incorrect dosage, you may experience pain, discomfort, or side effects, such as skin discoloration. Furthermore, injecting a sclerosant into the arteries instead of the veins may lead to skin necrosis. However, our board-certified vein doctors have a perfect track record with sclerosant — they take all necessary precautions to ensure you don’t experience harsh side effects or complications. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us.

Cons Summary:

  • Must be performed by a vein expert
  • Results depend on the medication used

 

Am I a suitable candidate for sclerotherapy?

You’re a suitable candidate for sclerotherapy if you have spider veins without underlying vein disease, tortuous veins that can’t be treated with ablation, or recurrent vein disease.

Foam Sclerotherapy

Also known as Vein Injections

Treats Small varicose veins (aka reticular veins) and large varicose veins

What is foam sclerotherapy?

Foam sclerotherapy is a technique wherein a sclerosant solution is injected into the unhealthy veins to seal their walls shut. However, this technique has one major difference from liquid sclerotherapy — the sclerosant medication is agitated with room air to create a bubbly foam that covers more distance than the liquid solution. As such, your vein expert injects the foamy sclerosant solution into your unhealthy veins to seal larger areas, such as small and large varicose veins.

How is foam sclerotherapy performed?

While performing foam sclerotherapy, your vein doctor will use ultrasound technology to visualize the diseased veins on a screen. To prepare the foamy solution, your vein doctor will mix the sclerosant solution with air rapidly between two syringes. Once the foam solution is prepared, they’ll immediately inject it into the diseased veins under ultrasound guidance for optimal precision.

Pros:

We believe foam sclerotherapy is more effective at treating larger veins than liquid sclerotherapy because the foamy solution covers more area. It’s also suitable for tortuous veins because the foam travels around within the veins.

Pros Summary:

  • Treats tortuous leg veins
  • Covers larger veins than liquid sclerotherapy
  • Treats recurrent vein disease

Cons:

Your foam sclerotherapy must be performed by our talented vein doctors because it’s a delicate procedure. Varicose veins are often connected to deep veins known as perforating veins. Your vein doctor must cover the varicose veins without letting the foam solution travel into the perforating veins, leading to complications. As such, you must find vein experts who run careful tests and assessments to ensure safety.

Foam sclerotherapy also has the potential risk of air embolism, a phenomenon wherein air passes through the bloodstream into the lungs, preventing the optimal transmission of blood cells and blood oxygenation. This can happen because the sclerosant medication is mixed with room air. But our talented vein doctors can reduce its likelihood.

Cons Summary:

  • Must be performed by an exceptional vein doctor
  • Potential risk of entering the perforating veins
  • Potential risk of air embolism

Am I a suitable candidate for foam sclerotherapy?

You’re a suitable candidate for foam sclerotherapy if you have visible varicose veins or reticular veins (larger than spider veins but smaller than varicose veins.) You can also choose this treatment if you have recurrent vein disease.

Pre-Mixed Foam Sclerotherapy

Also known as Foam Sclerotherapy

Treats the underlying vein disease and its symptoms, including varicose veins, leg heaviness, leg fatigue, discomfort, restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, and more…

What is pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy?

Pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy is a more advanced form of foam sclerotherapy wherein the foam solution comes in special canisters, so there’s no need for in-office preparation. The foam solutions in the canisters are pre-mixed with a higher concentration of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. This composition is specifically designed to negate the risk of air embolism, which can happen during traditional foam sclerotherapy when the sclerosant is mixed with room air. The pre-mixed foam solution travels through the bloodstream quickly and is deactivated before it reaches the lungs, making it far safer for you.

How is pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy performed?

While performing pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy, your vein doctor will use ultrasound technology to visualize the diseased veins on a screen. Under ultrasound guidance, your vein doctor will inject the pre-mixed foam sclerosant into the diseased reticular veins and varicose veins, ensuring optimal precision and safety for you.

Pros:

We believe pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy is far more effective and safer than traditional foam sclerotherapy and liquid sclerotherapy. It’s a suitable treatment for you if you have recurrent vein disease, and it can also treat larger varicose veins that would otherwise need surgeries.

Pros Summary:

  • Effective
  • Safe
  • Treats large varicose veins
  • Treats recurrent vein disease

Cons:

Your pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy must be performed by experienced and talented vein doctors. Our vein doctors always ensure optimal safety, preventing the foam solution from entering the perforating veins. Furthermore, pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy is fairly expensive, and it’s not yet covered by most insurance providers.

 

Cons Summary:

  • Must be performed by experienced vein doctors
  • Not covered by all insurance plans
  • Expensive without insurance coverage

Am I a suitable candidate for pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy?

You’re a suitable candidate for pre-mixed foam sclerotherapy if you have recurrent vein disease or large varicose veins and if your insurance providers extend coverage to this procedure.

ClariVein

Also known as Mechanochemical Ablation

Treats the underlying vein disease and its symptoms, including varicose veins, leg heaviness, leg fatigue, discomfort, restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, and more…

What is clarivein?

ClariVein is a cutting-edge technology consisting of a special catheter with a rotating tip. The catheter’s rotating tip moves around inside the diseased vein to mechanically ablate its walls while delivering a sclerosant medication. This induces mechanical and chemical trauma, thereby destroying the diseased vein.

How is clarivein performed?

While performing clarivein, your vein doctor will use ultrasound guidance to insert the catheter into your diseased vein via an incision on your skin’s surface. The catheter’s tip will rotate within the diseased vein, deliberately damaging the vein walls while delivering the sclerosant medication. Your vein doctor will move the catheter all along the diseased vein’s length to cover all areas.

Pros:

We believe clarivein is a suitable alternative to venaseal and endovenous ablation. Unlike venaseal, it doesn’t leave a permanent implant in your body. And unlike endovenous ablation, it doesn’t involve tumescent anesthesia, so you don’t experience post-treatment swelling. Furthermore, the catheter is small enough to enter extremely tortuous veins in your body.

Pros Summary:

  • No tumescent anesthesia necessary
  • Minimizes post-treatment swelling
  • Doesn’t leave an implant
  • Suitable for twisted and tortuous veins

Cons:

There have been some reports that clarivein has difficulty moving past the vein valves and you might experience some discomfort. Furthermore, you might not receive insurance coverage for this treatment.

Cons Summary:

  • Not covered by all insurance providers
  • Potential for discomfort

Am I a suitable candidate for clarivein?

You’re a suitable candidate for clarivein if you have twisted or tortuous veins and if your insurance providers cover the treatment. You should also consider this treatment if you don’t like the idea of having implants in your body (venaseal) and you’re allergic to lidocaine (used for tumescent anesthesia during ablation).

Surgery

Also known as Vein Removal, Vein Stripping, and Phlebectomy

Treats extremely large varicose veins

What is vein stripping?

We believe vein surgery is the traditional approach to vein treatments. Your vascular surgeon makes an incision to access and remove the diseased vein using surgical techniques. However, we don’t think vein surgeries are appropriate because they’re needlessly risky, complex, and less effective than minimally invasive treatments. However, we might consider vein stripping in extreme cases when you don’t respond to minimally invasive treatments.

How is vein surgery performed?

Your vein surgery is performed under general anesthesia in our surgical facility. Your vein doctor will make an incision to expose the diseased vein. Using various surgical techniques, such as a hook-like device, your vein doctor will forcibly remove the unhealthy veins from your body.

Pros:

Vein surgery might be the only option for you if you have extremely large and tortuous veins that don’t respond to minimally invasive procedures.

 

Pros Summary:

  • Suitable in extreme cases

Cons:

We believe minimally invasive procedures are far more effective and safer, capable of treating most cases of spider veins, varicose veins, and vein disease.

Cons Summary:

  • Outdated procedure
  • Complex and risky

Am I a suitable candidate for vein surgery?

You’re a suitable candidate for phlebectomy if you have extremely large or tortuous varicose veins, blood clots in your veins, or if minimally invasive procedures have failed.
