Varicose Vein Treatment in Marietta, GA

What Is Varicose Vein Treatment?

Varicose veins are enlarged veins that most often occur in the legs. The veins have valves that keep blood from flowing backward against gravity. When the valves stop working properly, the blood flows backwards and the varicose veins enlarge. This problem occurs in superficial veins on the legs. Residents in Marietta, GA, seek treatment for varicose veins since they can become a cosmetic problem and can also cause pain.

How Is Varicose Vein Treatment Performed?

The surgeon will determine whether he should use a conservative or non-conservative method to eliminate the varicose veins. Normally, conservative methods are used, and surgical methods are used if no other options are available. One middle-of-the-road treatment is sclerotherapy. With this treatment, the vein is injected with a medicine that makes the vein shrink. Then the rest of the blood travels through other healthy veins to and from the heart.
