VEINS TREATMENT IN TORONTO
Times have changed for a patient dealing with a vein disease. Where once the only answer available from specialist was to ignore the problem as it was considered a purely cosmetic problem. The type of treatment and respective effectiveness was also limited, making the situation even more hopeless for the patient dealing with the disease.
But now, you have a better answer – Rejuvenus Clinic uses the latest and most effective techniques, our Toronto based clinic has been able to provide long lasting relief to hundreds of patients dealing with various vein disorders.
COMMON VENUS CONDITIONS
Venous insufficiency is a common medical condition affecting more than 20% of Canadian adults. Women have a higher incidence of venous insufficiency than men. There are many factors that can increase the likelihood of contracting a vein condition, including age, genetic predisposition (hereditary factors/ family history), weight gain, pregnancy and the conditions of your occupation, like standing on your feet all day. In some instances, vein conditions can lie deep within the skin, leading to a “silent condition.” In other instances, the condition may come with many obvious symptoms.
The most common venous conditions treated at Rejuvenus Clinic are varicose and spider veins. Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen and twisting veins that appear throughout the leg. They are on the largest end of a spectrum that includes the much smaller spider veins.
At Rejuvenus Clinic, we offer a full range of treatment options to all of our patients.
With the use of our LongPulse® technology, we are able to precisely and safely treat the effected area with longer pulse times of up to 60ms. Working with spot sizes that vary from 2mm, 3mm, 6mm and 9mm in diameter, and that have a maximum fluency of up to 500 j/cm2, we are able to treat various medical conditions related to vascular malformations on the face and body.
Lasertreatment is the safest, most natural way to treat these unsightly spider veins. We pass a laser over the vein so that light energy can make its way through the skin. It helps liquefy the coagulated blood that is trapped in the vessel. Your lymphatic system then simply flushes it out.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. It involves an injection of a special chemical (sclerosant) solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and stick together and the blood to clot. After the injection of sclerosant is given, pressure is applied over the veins to prevent blood return when you stand up.
Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. It will come back once successful treatment is attained. Two weeks interval is the ideal treatment schedule, but may vary as per doctor's advise. It takes an average of 3-4 sessions. Many patients are treated after 1-2 sessions only, while some takes more than the usual. Patients normally see improvements after every single visit.
Compression stockings squeeze the patient's legs and improve circulation. You may need to wear compression stockings for several days or weeks after the laser therapy or sclerotherapy treatment to maintain the pressure.
They are tight around the ankles and loosen further up the leg. This way, compression stockings support blood flow upwards, against gravity and back towards the heart. Compression stockings can help with discomfort, pain, and swelling. We encourage the use of compression stockings to all of our patients with varicose veins and symptoms of discomfort.
RESULTS: BEFORE AND AFTER
At Rejuvenus Clinic, we are dedicated to delivering the best service to our patients.
Here is a list of our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any other questions or concerns, our experts will provide you will all the information you need.
What are Spider Veins?
While spider veins aren’t life threatening, they can be unsightly and plain irritating to look at. Normally veins circulate blood across the body and return it back to the heart. Sometimes an accumulation of blood in the veins creates a backflow and spider veins develop, creating a spider web effect on the face or legs. Extreme exposure to the sun can especially irritate the condition in the face.
What can I expect from Sclerotherapy Recovery?
Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment, though it is suggested to have a friend or family member take you home post procedure in case you have any lasting discomfort in your legs. You may experience minor side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, irritation, or itching at the injection site.
What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen and twisting veins that appear throughout the leg. They are on the largest end of a spectrum that includes the much smaller spider veins. If a patient has no symptoms or discomfort and is not bothered by the sight of the varicose veins, treatment might not be necessary. However, if there are symptoms, treatment may be required to reduce pain or discomfort, address complications, such as leg ulcers, skin discolouration, or swelling
How many treatments will I need to achieve the desired results?
Most patients only require one treatment, though multiple treatments (monthly or annually) may be needed to achieve optimal improvements to your spider veins.
How Long Does a Vein Treatment Session Take?
Spider vein or variscose vein removal only takes about 30-60 minutes. It is dependent on the number of veins in the treatment area. Your specislist will discuss the timing during your complimentary consultation.
How successful is sclerotherapy in treating variscose and spider veins?
When performed by a skilled and experienced provider like our experts this treatment can be quite effective in resolving the appearance of spider veins and small varicose veins. The results are permanent, though new spider veins are likely to appear as you age, which may cause you to seek further treatment.
