Vein Specialists Winston-Salem: Is Vein Treatment Permanent?

Novant Health Vein Specialists Publishes An Article Answering Patients’ Questions About Whether Vein Treatments are Permanent

vein specialistsOctober 11th, 2018. Winston-Salem, N.C. Novant Health Vein Specialists is publishing a new article in which they answer one of the most common questions patients ask: “Is vein treatment permanent?” According to the Winston-Salem based center, vein treatments are indeed permanent, but they cannot prevent new varicose veins from appearing in the future.

Dr. Joel Deonanan, a Winston-Salem vascular doctor explains, “Smaller varicose veins and spider veins can be effectively removed using sclerotherapy, in which a sealing agent is injected into the vein to cause the vessel walls to stick to one another and close. Larger varicose veins can be treated using radio-frequency ablation or saphenous vein ablation to close the veins using heat.” Dr. Deonanan notes that although removal of varicose veins by these minimally invasive procedures is permanent, it cannot prevent new varicose veins from appearing. “However, the Winston-Salem vein experts at NHVS can help to prevent future episodes by providing you with diet, exercise, and lifestyle tips to reduce your risk of developing vein disease in the future.”

Novant Health Vein Specialists hope that by providing this information to the public, patients will be more likely to seek vein disease treatment in Winston-Salem. Interested readers can find out more about vein disease treatment and vein health at the Center website:


Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins result from malfunction of their one-way valves which normally promote the return of blood from the extremities back to the heart. Blood backs up in the veins increasing the pressure against the vein walls resulting in bulging veins. More than just a cosmetic nuisance, however, varicose veins can lead to leg pain, swelling and discoloration.

Many people are unaware of the affordable, effective treatments available to eliminate varicose veins. Modern advances in technology have expanded treatment options to include techniques such as sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser therapy. All of these procedures are well tolerated. They are performed by a highly skilled vein doctor on an outpatient basis with most patients able to return to work the next day.
