Sclerotherapy: Liquid & Foam
About 1 in 3 adult Americans have some form of leg vein disease. While this may be of a primarily cosmetic concern, many people experience significant symptoms that impact their daily quality of life. Even many physicians are unaware of the impact of leg vein disease on a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, major advances have been made in diagnosis and treatment. Minimally invasive treatment is now an effective option even for those with advanced vein disorders.
Dr. Bielfield uses a variety of state-of-the-art techniques to treat vein disorders:
- SCLEROTHERAPY – This non-surgical procedure addresses problem veins by injecting a solution into the varicose veins or spider veins to make them collapse, shrink and then disappear.
- FOAM SCLEROTHERAPY – A form of sclerotherapy used to treat varicose veins.
- ULTRASOUND-GUIDED SCLEROTHERAPY – Used to perform sclerotherapy of varicose veins below the skin surface.
- LASER & PULSED LIGHT TREATMENT – Treat facial spider veins with this light-based procedure that heats the veins. A light beam is pulsed onto the veins in order to seal them off, causing them to dissolve.
- AMBULATORY PHLEBECTOMY – This in-office procedure removes large varicose veins through tiny punctures which are so small no stitches are required.
- ENDOVENOUS LASER TREATMENT (EVLT) – An alternative to vein stripping, EVLT is an in-office procedure, done under local anesthesia without incisions, to treat varicose veins below the skin. Dr. Bielfield places a very thin laser fiber inside the vein and then delivers laser light to the vein. It is remarkably effective.
