All the following treatment options are minimally invasive and can be done in a clean, comfortable office setting with minimal if any disruption of normal activities. While patients may have some minor discomfort after some of the treatments, it is rare to need anything more than over the counter medications such as Tylenol or Motrin. Our staff and doctors are equipped to offer treatment for all kinds of vein disorders.
WE OFFER THE LATEST IN Advanced Treatments
Our minimally invasive treatment options allow for no downtime and no vein stripping. Schedule a consultation today to determine the right treatment option for you.
A catheter is inserted directly into the diseased vein and injects the VenaSeal® adhesive to seal the vein.
A catheter is introduced into the vein and delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut.
A solution, called a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins causing the blood to clot and the vein to scar.
Small incisions are made in the area of the vein, and then a special hook tool is used to remove the vein.
Dr. Heeringa’s first approaches are always conservative and non-invasive. For some patients, these treatments may be all that’s necessary.
Cosmetic injectables, such as dermal fillers and Botox, are popular for facial rejuvenation, while cosmetic sclerotherapy addresses visible veins, providing comprehensive aesthetic enhancements.
Hand Vein Treatment
As our skin thins with age, some of the veins and tendons that become more obvious on the backs of the hands are inevitable.
A stent is a braided metal tube which acts as a scaffold to keep the vein open.
