Anyone who has experienced varicose veins knows that they not only can be unattractive and embarrassing, but painful. In fact, they’re often associated with swelling, skin discoloration, itching and inflammation. The good news is, there is an effective treatment available. Small varicose veins are sometimes best eliminated using a procedure called microphlebectomy.
In this minimally invasive treatment available at North Shore Vascular, Dr. Golan makes a tiny 1- to 2-millimeter incision in the skin to remove the varicose vein. It is a short, manageable procedure, yet it allows you to quickly treat the frustration of varicose veins. Best of all, you’ll have only a small bandage over your incision, and you can return to regular activities right away. Typically, there is minimal discomfort, and excellent results are immediate.
What to Expect in Microphlebectomy Treatment
Microphlebectomy treatment for varicose veins is so minimally invasive, you don’t need general anesthesia or stitches. The entire procedure is done with local anesthesia, causes minimal discomfort and takes typically less than an hour. Even better, afterward, you can go home and resume your daily routine.
Our patients are only required to wear compression stockings for a few days after the procedure. In most cases, with this microphlebectomy treatment, you’ll leave with visible change.
Typically, there is minimal discomfort, and excellent results are immediate.
