The board certified vascular surgeons who own Veintec clinics are well-versed in the latest techniques for restoring a healthier appearance.
All new patients see a physician for evaluation, which may include Doppler ultrasound and ultrasonic imaging to get a clearer picture of the problem. The physician will outline an individual course of treatment for each patient, with an estimate of the cost for treatment. Veintec medical services may be covered by insurance.
Our staff of experienced registered nurses will treat spider veins. Varicose veins will be treated by a physician.
Since 2001, we have used lasers for ablating large veins. This procedure (LASE* uses laser energy to obliterate the interior portion of the vein. This usually can be completed in the clinic, with local anesthesia and minimal discomfort and downtime. Most patients can drive themselves home. Support stockings are usually not needed. Veintec clinics have preformed more than 2,500 Laser procedures.
A simple injection may be all you need to be rid of unsightly or uncomfortable veins. This procedure, called sclerotherapy, can be used to treat spider veins and larger veins.
If sclerotherapy is right for you, the procedure should cause your veins to disappear or become much smaller Sclerotherapy may also be recommended for the treatment of larger reticular veins. Many different techniques and solutions are available, and the recommendations will be discussed with you at the time of your initial consultation
Miniphlebectomy is a procedure that can be used on small and large veins In this procedure, tiny pinpoint holes are made with a small needle. Using specialized instruments, segments of the vein can be removed through these openings. The tiny openings heal with nearly invisible scars that are quite cosmetically acceptable. You won’t even have to wear stockings for an extended period of time with this procedure, which is done under local anesthetic with minimal down time.
VENEFIT™ (Available only at the 2 San Antonio Veintec clinics)
Targeted Endovenous Therapy
Formerly known as the VNUS Closure™ procedure. New name, same proven results.
The Venefit™ procedure is the only minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to precisely and effectively treat patients suffering from Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). With less pain and bruising than alternative treatments, patients experience a quick, comfortable recovery and a return to everyday activities, while also improving the appearance of varicose veins.
The Venefit™ treatment features segmental radiofrequency (RF) ablation that utilizes radiofrequency energy to provide an even and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and seal. Once a leg vein is closed, blood flow is redirected to healthy veins.
Some problems, such as large varicose veins, may call for ligation, a procedure in which the connections between the damaged veins and the normal vein systems are interrupted. Ligation is usually done under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, often in combination with other procedures. Your initial consultation will give you and your physician an opportunity to discuss which treatment program may be best for you.
