Abella Veins offers more effective vascular care and spider veins treatments in Miami

For a long time, varicose veins and spider veins have been viewed as strictly cosmetic issues. To get them removed meant a visit to a dermatologist or even a spa. It turns out that spider veins are often indicative of a deeper problem. A problem related to the vascular system, the heart and circulation. A problem that in the worst cases can lead to venous ulcers and amputations. Even today many health care providers do not recognize this fact. Dr. Manuel E. Abella, one of the leading vein doctors in Florida, and his staff at Abella Veins are working hard to educate their patients and the public at large about the causes of varicose and spider veins and the available varicose and spider vein treatments. They serve the greater Miami area, including Kendall and Coral Gables. 

Varicose veins and spider veins develop by the stretching and twisting of weak leg veins near the skin’s surface. Aside from varicose and spider veins, there are other clear indicators of venous insufficiencies. Many of these are also predictors of varicose and spider veins developing in the future.

These symptoms are often vague, leading some patients to ignore them or deny they exist. It is important that these symptoms and the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins are taken seriously.

  • Cramps and fatigue
  • Leg heaviness
  • Leg pain
  • Redness on skin

                               No guarantee of specific results.  Individual results may vary.

 

Dr. Abella recommends these minor lifestyle adjustments to help prevent varicose and spider veins, and the venous insufficiency that causes them. Following these simple tips will encourage good circulation in the legs.

  • Do not cross legs at the knee while seated
  • Avoid high heeled shoes
  • Avoid tight pants
  • Walk frequently

There are multiple minimally-invasive treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins at our clinic. Some of the best treatment options are sclerotherapy, vein ablation and VenaSeal.

Sclerotherapy

In this procedure, a solution is injected directly into the vein, which causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute to healthier veins. The scarred vein eventually collapses and is reabsorbed into local tissue. Sclerotherapy is considered by many to be the treatment of choice for varicose veins.

After treatment, unsightly veins generally begin to fade within a few weeks. It is a very effective treatment for getting rid of symptoms like aching, swelling and burning in the legs, due to damaged veins.

Sclerotherapy is minimally invasive, and patients can expect to return to normal activities the same day.

Vein Ablation is Effective & Safe

One of the preferred treatments at Abella Veins is known as vein ablation. It uses radio frequency to completely remove varicose and spider veins. A catheter enters the vein thru a tiny cut in the skin and is pushed in to the end of the vein. As the catheter is pulled back out, a radio frequency is activated. This frequency causes the vein to collapse and eventually to be absorbed by the body. Vein ablation takes about an hour to complete and causes no scarring and little or no pain. Some patients experience an immediate relief of their symptoms. The treatment is available to any healthy patient experiencing venous insufficiency.

Learn About the Revolutionary New VenaSeal System For Varicose Veins

Traditional varicose vein treatment usually involves heat to seal veins, or surgical stripping of the damaged vein. VenaSeal approaches spider veins differently, using an advanced medical adhesive to close the problematic vein areas.
