The veins in your legs carry blood back to your heart. They have one-way valves that keep blood from flowing backward. Therefore, if you have chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), the valves don’t work like they should and some of the blood might go back down into your legs. This situation causes blood to pool or collect in the veins. Fortunately, Lexington Vein Institute offers a wide variety of treatment options that can help you get rid of this problem. Contact Lexington Vein Institute today to learn more about treatment options.

Vein Treatment Options in Woodford, KY
Lexington Vein Institute offers a number of different treatment options designed to address varicose veins, spider veins, edema, leg ulcers, restless leg syndrome, deep vein thrombosis, and other venous insufficiency problems.
If you have spider veins or small varicose veins, sclerotherapy is often the best treatment. This procedure involves the injection of a special solution into these veins. The solution irritates the walls of the veins, causing them to seal off the spider veins.
Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy (EVLT)
Endovenous laser ablation therapy (EVLT) is a minimally invasive procedure that makes use of catheters, lasers, and ultrasound to treat varicose veins. This procedure is performed most often on veins that are still relatively straight and untwisted.
Microphlebectomy is a procedure that is best for varicose veins located close to the skin. During the procedure, the varicose vein is removed through small incisions made in the skin. Most patients will notice very good cosmetic results from this procedure, and recovery time is minimal.
