Varicose Vein Removal in Northwest Houston, TX
Natural aging, lifestyle choices, diet, and genetics all contribute to the development of varicose veins. These red and purple veins can impact self-confidence especially when they appear on the face or legs. Varicose veins, in general, do impact your health and are often the source of aches and pains, as well as a symptom of an underlying medical issue. However, most patients choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons alone. Appointment Contact Us
To regain smooth and clear skin and eliminate health concerns, visit our surgical office for varicose vein treatment in Houston. Zhen Fan, DMD, will recommend the best course of treatment, depending on the severity of your condition.
The first step in eliminating problematic veins is a personal consultation, where we can take detailed scans and an ultrasound of the affected area. By examining the appearance of current varicose veins and reviewing your medical history, Dr. Fan can better understand your condition. If these veins are part of an existing issue such as leg pain, swelling, or discolored veins, or are contributing to discomfort, Dr. Fan and his team will make it their priority to restore health.
All vein treatments are performed in-office to ensure your procedure is as convenient as possible; you won’t have to travel to multiple locations to receive the care you need from a familiar and friendly physician. Based on the depth and length of your varicose veins, Dr. Fan may recommend using one or more of the following treatments:
- Conservative At-Home Management consists of using compression stockings or socks and lifestyle changes, such as keeping your legs elevated or taking anti-inflammatory medication. Dietary guidance may also be included.
- Radio Frequency Ablation is a minimally-invasive vein treatment uses radio frequency energy to collapse and close the indicated veins. This improves the appearance of your skin and addresses more immediate concerns, such as pain or swelling.
- Sclerotherapy introduces a biocompatible saline solution into affected areas. The solution irritates the walls of the veins, closing them off.
In severe cases, Dr. Fan may recommend surgery. He will only move forward with treatment when patients fully understand and are comfortable with the procedure.
Our surgical team is here to remove discomfort and restore beauty to your skin. If you would like more information about varicose vein treatment at Surgical Associates of Houston, P.A., contact Dr. Fan today!
