Varicose Veins Treatment in Atlanta (Buckhead) & Valdosta, GA
If you have veins that are visibly enlarged below the surface of the skin, you may have varicose veins. Southern Vein & Laser Center offers varicose veins treatment to men and women in Valdosta and Alpharetta, as well as surrounding areas in Georgia.
Varicose Veins Treatment
A varicose vein develops when blood pools inside a vein. The condition may occur anywhere on the body, but is most common on the feet and legs where blood flow must overcome the greatest degree of gravity to return to the heart. People who stand or walk for prolonged periods are typically more prone to varicose veins, but this depends on your personal and family medical history.
In many cases, varicose veins are simply cosmetic concerns. Some patients, though, experience pain and other symptoms associated with their varicose veins, and the enlarged veins may indicate a problem with your circulatory system.
Benefits of Varicose Veins Treatment
Southern Vein & Laser Center offers varicose veins treatment to alleviate any discomfort and to improve the cosmetic appearance of the area. Although the veins are permanently destroyed and removed by the body, we recommend that you make changes that will minimize the risk of developing varicose veins in the future. If you spend long periods on your feet, make sure that you take regular breaks and elevate your legs. Exercising and using compression socks can also help.
How Varicose Veins Treatment Works
Southern Vein & Laser Center uses sclerotherapy for moderate to severe varicose veins. The treatment destroys damaged veins, which are absorbed naturally by the body. Blood flow is then naturally routed through healthier veins.
What to Expect from Varicose Veins Treatment
Sclerotherapy at our vein clinic is an easy and safe way to eliminate varicose veins. A syringe is filled with a special solution that acts on the walls of the damaged veins. We make several injections along the varicose vein. The solution causes the vein to collapse and die. It is then absorbed and eliminated by your body, and the blood flowing back to your heart follows the path of healthier veins.
How Much Does Varicose Veins Treatment Cost?
Varicose veins treatment may be covered by medical insurance. We review your coverage and out-of-pocket costs at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, checks and major credit cards. If you are interested in financing the cost of varicose veins treatment, you may qualify with CareCredit®.
