What to Expect During a Microfoam Chemical Ablation Procedure?

Vein disease treatment in Westminster
Microfoam Chemical Ablation precisely targets and definitively treats varicose veins. It is administered by injecting a foamy substance into the damaged vein to seal it off from the flow of blood. The treatment reduces the uncomfortable physical effects of varicose veins by easing symptoms and improving blood flow.  


Vein diseases not only affect your health; they can also be unsightly. What are those bulging veins doing to your healthy legs? Naturally, you want them gone. Today! We understand. 

But besides the aesthetic inconvenience, it can be a medical signal to visit your nearest vein clinic to address the possibility of venous insufficiency. If you’re looking to achieve vein health and improved appearance too, then it may just be time to get Microfoam Chemical Ablation.


What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, expanded veins that mostly appear on your legs but damaged veins can be found on the face, in the case of spider veins. They rise to the surface when too much blood pools inside the damaged veins and causes a blockage that compromises blood flow. 

While arteries take oxygen-rich blood from the heart to organs and cells, veins transport that de-oxygenated blood back to the heart. The veins in the lower extremities often have a steep hill to climb on their northbound journey. That’s when valves step in to keep the blood flowing in its intended direction.

But sometimes valves weaken and veins get damaged. This causes blood to trickle back, pool and block the pathway. All the while, the blood keeps flowing and when they reach the veins, they expand more and more, creating thicker and thicker ropes of pooled blood called varicose veins. 


What Are The Symptoms of Varicose Veins? 

Unsightly veins seen under the surface of the skin are one of the most glaring symptoms. Other symptoms include: 

  • Heavy Legs
  • Discoloration
  • Pain or Discomfort 
  • Ulcers 
  • Throbbing or Burning 
  • Muscle Cramps 

If you experience any of the above-mentioned symptoms, then contact Artemis Vein & Aesthetic Center today to get a full screening and discuss Microfoam Chemical Ablation to address your vein issues.


What Is Microfoam Chemical Ablation?

Artemis Vein & Aesthetic Center treats varicose veins with expert treatments including Microfoam Chemical Ablation. The minimally invasive procedure uses a unique foam substance to seal off vein damage and promote blood flow.


What To Expect During a Microfoam Chemical Ablation Procedure?

Once you have had a consultation with Dr. Pinskinski, he will inject a foamy substance into the affected vein through a number of injection sites. The foam seals the vein and blocks any more blood from flowing into it. 

As a result of the sealed vein, the blood begins to flow to healthier veins, and the treated vein eventually gets absorbed into the body. The procedure can also help you if you experience Restless Leg Syndrome or skin issues.


What Results Will You See After Microfoam Chemical Ablation Procedure?

The results that you will see after receiving Microfoam Chemical Ablation are permanent and successful. 

One session of treatment can give your legs:

  • Improved Blood Flow 

As the veins that once blocked the flow start to disappear, the blood is encouraged to move through nearby veins.   

  • Reduced Symptoms

The heaviness, swelling, discoloration, and other symptoms such as pain are reduced significantly. 

  • Physical Comfort 

When the symptoms subside, you can get back to your normal self with healthier legs and a more active lifestyle. 


What Are The Benefits of Microfoam Chemical Ablation?

There are so many benefits to a treatment like Microfoam Chemical Ablation: 

  • Minimally invasive 

The procedure will be completed quickly and with minimal pain. There may be some discomfort when you are given injections but it is a smooth procedure that is expertly conducted by Dr. Pinskinski.

  • Fast Recovery Time

Invasive procedures take a long time to recover from, often forcing you to stay in bed and out of commission. But with Microfoam Chemical Ablation, the process takes a short time and you are out the door and back to the rest of your life with healthier legs. 

  • Lasting Results

Some treatments can require more than one session. The benefit of Microfoam Chemical Ablation is that one session resolves your varicose vein woes.

Once you receive the Microfoam Chemical Ablation, it is recommended that you avoid heavy exercise for a week while remaining moderately active, i.e. walking. It’s important to keep wearing your compression socks for continued venous improvement.
