Types of Veins
Spider veins are also known as telangiectasia and occur at the earliest stages of venous insufficiency. They are formed by small skin veins that become dilated and are visible through the skin's surface. They can be blue, purple or red and are frequently extensive, forming various patterns of linear, starburst, or tree-like distribution. In the legs, they may be associated with varicose veins and venous insufficiency. They can be present in all areas of the body, including the face and the back.
Varicose veins are abnormal veins that become large and tortuous. As a result, varicose veins bulge out and can be seen through the skin. They appear as rope-like structures protruding out from the skin and can occur throughout the legs and ankles. Varicose veins occur due to a disease called "venous reflux." Healthy veins have tiny leaflets inside of them called valves. They allow blood to flow in one direction from the ankles towards the heart. When valves do not work, blood backs up in the legs and causes increased pressure in them. This causes the veins to enlarge and causes symptoms such as pain, heaviness, cramping, itching and burning of the skin. In advanced cases, this can lead to skin pigmentation, ulceration and bleeding.
Reticular veins are considered a more advanced stage of venous disorder. They are formed by larger veins that are located deeper in the skin's surface with venous reflux. They are usually blue and purple in color, tortuous frequently feeding the areas of spider veins. In contrast to varicose veins, both spider and reticular veins do not protrude on the skin surface. Reticular veins may form areas of unattractive clusters of veins predominantly located on the inner part of thighs, backs of legs and ankles. They can also be associated with symptoms of pain and discomfort of the legs. For advanced treatment of reticular veins, Atrium Laser Vein Center located in Westchester NY, is the first easy step towards a pain-free, more confident life.
Minimally Invasive Treatments
Our methods of treatment are the most advanced in Westchester,
New York. We offer foam sclerotherapy, EVLT, VNUS closure procedure
and laser treatments, which are highly successful in the treatment
of varicose veins, spider veins, and other vein related conditions.
Laser treatments are performed to remove unsightly spider veins. A laser
beam is applied to small veins which causes the vessel walls to coagulate
and then disappear.
Sclerotherapy is a method of injecting varicose veins with a solution that
causes the vein wall to become sticky. Compression is then applied, which
causes it to close up and eventually be absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy
generally requires several treatment sessions. The majority of patients with
small varicosity can be treated effectively with sclerotherapy.
Mini-phlebectomy is a procedure used to treat large varicose veins. Tiny
punctures are made to extract large varicose veins near the surface of the
skin. Incisions are small and usually do not require stitches. Very good
cosmetic results can be obtained with this procedure.
Vein Closure procedures (VNUS)
The Vein Closure procedure is an alternative to stripping and ligation of the
greater saphenous veins. This procedure involves inserting a catheter into
the damaged vein without making an incision. The catheter delivers radio
frequency energy to the vein wall to shrink and seal shut. Patients are
satisfied with this procedure because it allows them to resume normal
activity immediately after the treatment.
Endovenous Laser Procedure
The Endovenous Laser procedure involves placing a laser and fiber into the
saphenous vein to seal the vein. This procedure also replaces stripping of
the saphenous vein.
