  1. Nonsurgical Reticular Vein Treatment At USA Vein Clinics, we deal with all manner of vein conditions on a regular basis. Some of the most common vein problems include varicose veins, spider veins, and venous insufficiency. But what about reticular veins? Today we explain how reticular veins are different frDom the slew of other conditions affecting people around the world. We also look at how nonsurgical reticular veins treatment can be used to correct your condition and improve your health. What are Reticular Veins? Reticular veins are classified as small blue or purple veins appearing on the leg or thigh. They are usually around 2mm in diameter, with a ropy appearance. They can be hard to spot, but when once they accumulate, it can look particularly unsightly. Like spider veins, reticular veins only appear beneath the skin, whereas varicose veins tend to bulge outwards above the skin. Both conditions, however, are considered unattractive, leading many patients to seek treatment. There is an inherent link between vein conditions like these, as reticular vein clusters can spread over time, feeding into spider veins. They can appear anywhere on the inner

Those who suffer from reticular veins experience much anxiety about their condition. The self- consciousness associated with reticular veins will deter patients from dressing as they please, feeling the need to cover up and hide the unsightly veins. This can be particularly stressful for those with reticular veins on their faces. As such, there are many examples of reticular veins treatment to combat the condition. Nonsurgical Treatments for Reticular Veins Options for treatment without surgery for reticular veins are varied. Removal of reticular veins is a routine procedure and minimally- to non-invasive. Vascular surgeons can perform a procedure called ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS) to give an accurate diagnosis. A series of injections containing chemical sclerosants can help treat the condition. Similarly, endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) can reduce the visibility of reticular veins, if not remove them altogether. EVLA works by targeting a problem area with a specialized laser fiber. Ultrasound control helps track the progress of the treatment as the fiber is activated, firing, and cauterizing the affected veins. This closes the veins completely and allows the body to begin healing. While there may be some minimal scarring or aggravation of the area, this will fade in time as the body breaks down and absorbs the destroyed veins. EVLA is a highly sophisticated and effective solution to common unsightly vein conditions like varicose and reticular veins. Simply put, why suffer when you don’t have to?
