This procedure involves the injection of medium-sized and small varicose veins with a special solution that aids in the scarring and closing the veins. This treatment should make the treated veins fade within a few weeks. When done correctly, this procedure is very effective. This procedure can be done without anesthesia.
For larger veins, the procedure used is known as the foam sclerotherapy. This involves the injection of a foam solution to the problematic vein. This helps seal and close the vein. This eliminates the varicose vein problem.

Although the name of this treatment procedure has “surgery” in it, it does not involve the use of needles or incisions. The procedure involves directing strong light bursts into the varicose vein. This light helps collapse the varicose veins which should then disappear slowly.
When the concentrated light hits the skin, the patient may feel a tinge of discomfort. However, the doctor is supposed to cool the skin off quickly and hence eliminating this discomfort.
3. Ambulatory Phlebectomy
This technique is a little bit older. However, it is still used. It usually involves the removal of the problematic vein using a crochet-hook-like device. The procedure does involve making a series of small punctures In the skin. Scarring is usually minimal. Ambulatory Phlebectomy is usually quick.
4. Catheter-Assisted Procedures
This treatment option involves the use of a catheter (a thin tube), and either laser or radio-frequency energy. The procedure will involve the doctor inserting the catheter into the varicose vein and heating its tip using either the laser or radiofrequency energy. As the doctor pulls the thin tube out, the heat will destroy the vein. It will cause it to collapse and become sealed. This procedure is preferred if the patient is suffering from large varicose veins.
5. Endoscopic Vein Surgery
This procedure can be considered to be the last option. It is supposed to be used if other treatment options fail. In this procedure, the surgeon will insert a thin video camera into your leg to visualize and also close the problematic veins. These veins are then removed using small incisions.
