Happy New Year! As we all begin to set our goals and make plans to better ourselves in 2016, it’s a great time to consider showing your legs a little extra love with a simple, quick, and permanent varicose vein treatment. Just imagine—what would you do with your year if you had no pain? If you could wear whatever you want without hiding?
If you’re considering varicose vein treatment, good news—you’ve got a few really great options. Here’s a breakdown of the 3 major treatment options we offer and stand by:
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT)
Endovenous Laser Therapy, or EVLT, uses laser-light energy from within the affected vein(s) to seal the vein wall and close it. This allows other, healthier veins to take over. This simple procedure requires very little recovery time, with most patients getting back to life as usual within a few days.
Venefit Targeted Endovenous Therapy
The Venefit procedure is one of Dr. Bunker’s most preferred. It is much like the laser technique but uses radiofrequency (RF) energy. It involves little to no pain during or after the procedure, and most patients resume normal activities within 1-2 days. Most patients show minimal to no scarring or bruising.
VenaSeal is a new, state-of-the-art treatment for varicose veins and venous disease which uses medical-grade adhesive instead of heat to seal the affected vein(s). Dr. Bunker is one of the first doctors in Austin to be offering this new treatment.
VenaSeal helps to re-route blood flow to healthy veins, allowing the system to heal and alleviating painful symptoms like aching, swelling, and cramping. It requires just one shot of anesthesia, typically shows less bruising than traditional treatments, and recovery is immediate with zero down time.
All of these procedures are safe and in most cases, covered by insurance. To figure out which one might be right for starting your 2016 on the right foot, come in for a complimentary consultation and Dr. Bunker will help you find the best option.
