Once the pain associated with bulging or visible veins — or just the appearance of the veins — concerns you enough, visit your vein treatment specialist at the Varicose Vein Center of New Jersey. After a thorough physical exam, medical history and discussion of your symptoms in a consultation, Dr. Dmitry Gorelik reaches a diagnosis or orders additional tests, such as an ultrasound, to make a firm diagnosis.
Dr. Gorelik has several treatment options to help alleviate your symptoms and reduce the discomfort and appearance of bulging veins.
Most treatment options are less invasive and more effective than ever before. After your diagnosis, if no other medical concerns present themselves, your New Jersey doctor may recommend that you start with self-care methods you can do at home, such as:
Compression stockings also are a form of treatment that Dr. Gorelik recommends. These garments squeeze your leg veins and muscles to encourage blood to flow more efficiently. While there’s a range of commercial compression levels to choose from, your doctor can prescribe higher-strength stockings, if needed. If you’re using them to treat varicose veins, your insurance likely covers the cost.
Treatments for More-Severe Vein Conditions
If self-care treatments don’t improve your symptoms, your vein specialist at the Varicose Vein Center of New Jersey has other cutting-edge techniques. He always starts with the least invasive approaches, moving to more aggressive forms of treatment only if necessary. Outpatient vein treatments include:
Ulcer treatment. Damaged blood vessels can prevent your skin and tissue from draining correctly, which may eventually form a venous stasis ulcer. Venous ulcers are open sores on or under the skin’s surface. They can become chronic and crippling. To prevent this outcome, your vein doctor may conventional treatments, such as:
Surgical intervention as a last resort
Recovery Times for Vein Treatments
Dr. Gorelik chooses the most appropriate treatment to resolve your discomfort. Pain relief comes within a few days, while improvements in the cosmetic vein appearance follows within a few weeks. Ulcer treatments usually require longer recovery times, together with regular checkups and compression therapy to ensure a healthy recovery. Your vein specialist provides a post-treatment regimen to ensure a complete and speedy recovery.
