Varicose Veins: 4 Minimally Invasive Treatments

Painful varicose and spider veins on female legs Varicose veins can be a cosmetic concern or a source of pain and discomfort for many individuals. Fortunately, several minimally invasive treatment options are available to treat varicose veins. These procedures can be performed in-office during a single visit, providing excellent results for most patients. This blog post will discuss the four main types of minimally invasive varicose vein treatments.


Sclerotherapy is a popular and effective treatment for varicose veins. This minimally invasive procedure involves injecting a special solution into the affected vein, causing it to scar and collapse. Blood is rerouted to nearby healthy veins, and the affected vein is eventually reabsorbed by the body, fading away.

Saphenous Vein Ablation 

Saphenous Vein Ablation, also known as Endovenous Ablation, is another popular and effective treatment for varicose veins. This procedure uses radiofrequency energy to seal off the affected vein by heating its walls. The vein walls collapse, close, and become sealed shut. This procedure is less invasive than surgical treatments and just as effective.

Endovenous Laser Treatment 

Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) is recommended for large varicose veins. This minimally invasive procedure is commonly used for cosmetic reasons but can also alleviate painful symptoms associated with varicose veins. It involves using laser energy to treat varicose veins, which closes them off and reduces or eliminates symptoms.

Microphlebectomy Treatment 

Microphlebectomy treatment, or ambulatory phlebectomy, is another effective, minimally invasive option for removing damaged varicose veins from the legs. This procedure involves microscopic incisions to remove the veins through the leg’s surface. Usually used to treat larger varicose veins, it can also be used as an alternative to sclerotherapy.

How to Treat Varicose Veins at Home 

You can treat varicose veins at home in addition to minimally invasive treatments. These include maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding prolonged periods of standing or sitting, not crossing your legs while sitting, exercising and stretching regularly, and avoiding tight clothing restricting natural blood flow.
