About Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills is an affluent city near Los Angeles and West Hollywood. It is known for its luxurious hotels, mansions and shopping. The town also has a warm, mild climate through most of the year, much like the nearby city of Los Angeles. If you live in the area, or if you visit, you will certainly want to be able to wear shorts and skirts. Thus, if you have varicose veins or spider veins, you will want to seek treatment as soon as possible.
Exploring Beverly Hills Vein Treatment Options
Beverly Hills vein treatment centers offer the following options when it comes to abnormal vein treatment.
One of the most popular treatment options chosen by people dealing with varicose veins is radiofrequency ablation. This type of treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to force abnormal veins to collapse. This directs all of your blood into healthier veins, relieving your symptoms and improving the appearance of your legs.
- Endovenous Laser Treatment – Similar to radiofrequency, in endovenous laser treatment, a thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein through a very small entry point in the skin. The targeted vein is given targeted laser energy, causing the vein to close and seal shut. The veins that are closed are superficial veins that handle less than five percent of the body’s blood flow. The blood is automatically routed to other, healthy veins.
Another popular treatment option is sclerotherapy. To perform sclerotherapy, a surgeon injects a special solution into your veins. This solution irritates the lining of the veins, causing it to seal. The vein eventually collapses and faces from view.
If your varicose veins are too large for the treatment methods above, microphlebectomy may be your best option. During a microphlebectomy procedure, the surgeon makes tiny incisions in your leg. He or she will then remove the vein from the leg through the incision. After the vein is gone, often the symptoms resolve.
Every case is unique. To find out whether you may benefit from any of the treatments above, make an appointment with a vein specialist.
