Varicose veins are vessels that do not control blood flow properly. The condition results in pooling of the blood inside the vessels, and this may lead to discomfort, stiffness, and other symptoms, as well as the aesthetic aspect of damaged veins. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon and founding member of The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. German Newall, our team of nurse injectors and aestheticians offers advanced varicose vein treatment for men and women in Houston, Post Oak, Sugar Land, Katy, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What Are Varicose Veins?
Inside each of your blood vessels are small flaps of tissue that promote proper flow of blood back to your heart. When the flap does not open and close properly, the blood remains inside the vein. The enlarged vein bulges under the skin so that you can see it and feel it. You may experience stiffness, pain, cramping, throbbing, and other symptoms, but many people experience no symptoms other than the aesthetics of the veins.
Benefits of Varicose Vein Treatment
Treatment for varicose veins helps with your symptoms by destroying the damaged vein. Your body routes blood through nearby veins that are healthy.
What Can I Expect from Varicose Vein Treatment?
Dr. Newall recommends sclerotherapy for varicose veins. The procedure involves injecting a special solution into the vein. The solution causes the walls of the vein to stick together so that blood cannot flow through it. Over time, the body absorbs the vein because it no longer helps with blood flow.
Am I a Good Candidate for Varicose Vein Treatment?
Before you discuss varicose vein treatment with Dr. Newall, we recommend that you be evaluated by your physician. Varicose veins can be an indicator of more serious medical issues that may cause more varicose veins in the future. Once you are cleared by your physician, we encourage you to meet with Dr. Newall for a consultation to find out if varicose vein treatment is right for you.
How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of varicose vein treatment is a consideration for many of our patients. We provide pricing during the consultation, and you should also consider the cost of medications, compression garments, and other medical supplies that you may not need after the varicose veins are treated. This gives you an accurate perspective of how good of an investment varicose vein treatment may be for you.
