Microphlebectomy: Effective and Minimally Invasive Venous Treatment
One of the many cosmetic procedures available today is called a Microphlebectomy, which is a treatment for varicose veins. Originally developed in Europe, Microphlebectomy is now very common in many areas of the United States. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is carried out through a puncture the size of a pinhole and permits the removal of most of the larger varicose veins; similar to a traditional office procedure performed under local anesthesia.
Microphlebectomy is often used in conjunction with Endovenous Laser Ablation (ELT); this combination can provide an overall reduction in Telangectatias and spider veins without complete vein removal. It is usually part of a complete therapy program to eliminate unsightly and painful leg veins. Successful Micrphlebectomy can often completely treat varicose veins on the leg with little or no recovery time—this makes it a favorable alternative to vein stripping.
Post-procedure treatment may include:
