Vein Removal Treatment: Is It Permanent?

One of the most common questions that board certified surgeon Dr. Gregory Azia at We’re So Vain hears for his vein patients is, “How permanent is the vein removal treatment?” The answer is actually a little more complicated than a simple “yes” or “no” answer. Keep reading to find out what you can expect after your vein removal treatment.

Dr. Azia will permanently remove your veins with one his recommended procedures, such as sclerotherapy, laser vein removal, radiofrequency ablation, or microphlebectomy. Exactly how long the vein takes to disappear and go away depends on a few factors, including the type of procedure he performs.

For example, with sclerotherapy Dr. Azia injects a sclerosing solution that irritates your vein and causes it to collapse. The vein then gets eliminated from your body over time.

In a case like microphlebectomy, Dr Azia uses a specialized medical tool to pull the veins out through a small incision, so they actually vanish immediately. Veins that are treated permanently completely disappear from your body. It’ s possible that new veins may appear in the same area, but unlikely. On average, post procedure, only 4% of patients see a reoccurrence of a vein in the treated area

There may be a few things you can do to prevent new veins from appearing:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Exercising regularly
  • Avoiding excessive standing or sitting
  • Elevating your legs when you’re at rest
  • Eating a healthy diet low in fat and sodium
