Diagnostic Tools and Treatment Options
To diagnose varicose veins and spider veins, a physical exam by a doctor is generally all that is required.
If the doctor wants to get an idea of how the blood is flowing through your veins, he may order an ultrasound. The ultrasound is non-invasive and gives your doctor a picture of your veins and the direction of blood flow and how your valves are working.
One of the least invasive treatments is to use compression stockings to help support the veins.
Still considered non-invasive, the doctor injects a sealing agent into the veins.
This treatment involves the doctor removing the damaged vein from the leg.
Endovenous Vein Treatment:
The doctor seals the damaged vein from the inside with heat, laser, or glue.
