  • Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment

    Varicose veins are superficial veins that bulge due to injury, age, genetics or other factors. Often, larger varicose veins are the result of valves that fail to keep blood flowing toward the heart.

Our Spokane vein center offers treatment for varicose and spider veins in the convenience of the clinic. The procedures are done in less than one hour and patients are back on their feet with minimum down time. Patients benefit from a customized treatment plan which may include thermal ablation using laser light or radiofrequency energy, microambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy. These treatments typically cause minimal discomfort and patients can resume normal activities immediately.

Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment Options

The specialists at Providence Vein Center customize a treatment to fit your needs. Treatments vary, depending on the results of your initial screening. Sometimes, additional diagnostic tests, such as ultrasound, are necessary to determine the extent of vein damage.

Treatment might include thermal ablation using laser light or radiofrequency energy, microambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy. Often, a combination of these treatments is necessary.


VenaCure™ Endovenous Laser Ablation

During this treatment, a small laser fiber is inserted into the damaged vein. The highly-concentrated laser light damages the vein wall and seals it shut. In time, the body absorbs the unused vein and it’s no longer visible. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia. It typically takes about an hour. After the procedure, patients wear a support stocking.

VNUS Venefit™ Radiofrequency Ablation

Unlike the VenaCure treatment, which uses laser light, the VNUS Venefit treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) energy. Pulses of RF energy damage the vein wall and seal it shut. In time, the body absorbs the unused vein and it’s no longer visible. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia. It typically takes an hour. After the procedure, patients wear a support stocking.

Venaseal™ Closure

We now offer an exciting new technique for treating varicose veins. VenaSeal™ uses a proprietary medical adhesive delivered through the affected vein to seal it closed. Clinical studies conducted in Europe and the United States have demonstrated the procedure to be safe and effective. This approach does not involve thermal energy, eliminating the need for anesthetic and multiple needle sticks and avoiding patient discomfort. An added benefit: not having to wear compression hose after treatment.

Microambulatory Phlebectomies (MAPS or Stabs)

In this treatment for larger varicose veins, the doctor makes small punctures (.125-.25 inch) in the skin over a bulging vein. Then, small pieces of vein are removed through the punctures. The punctures are closed with a butterfly strip. This procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia.


Sclerotherapy

In sclerotherapy, the doctor injects medication into the vein using a tiny needle. The medication damages the vein, causing it to collapse and shut. In time, the vein becomes less visible and eventually disappears. You may need just one, or several sessions, depending upon the type and number of veins being treated.

You’ll experience minimal discomfort and can usually resume normal activities immediately. You may have some bruising and discoloration. Bruising normally disappears within 2-4 weeks. Discoloration almost always fades, but it can take several months.
