This is the time of year when long pants and warm socks are replaced with summer shorts and sandals. It is also the time of year when many patients come to the University of Michigan Vein Centers for a vein treatment consultation, wanting to know what they can do to get their legs looking and feeling great. Often, they are concerned with the appearance of spider and varicose veins, which impact more than 30 million adults in the United States.
The key is to schedule your vein treatment consultation a few months in advance, as some treatment options require follow-up and/or time to heal.
A visit to the University of Michigan Livonia Vein Center usually begins with an exam by one of our experienced providers, who will gather information about your vein health and share information about caring for your legs. In some cases, an ultrasound study of your legs may be necessary. Then, a personalized treatment plan is designed specifically for you.
New varicose vein treatment on the horizon
Varithena® is recently FDA-approved for foam sclerotherapy and has been shown to improve the symptoms and appearance of varicose veins. This treatment — a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that features injecting the varicose vein — is expected to be available this summer.
