Varicose and Spider Veins

Dr. Martin and her team are highly experienced in the field of venous diseases. They will expertly evaluate the legs, provide valuable education, then decide which treatment option is best for a given situation. The options include sclerotherapy, compression therapy, laser or surgery.

Sclerotherapy is a popular method for eliminating varicose & spider veins that has been in use since the 1920's. It involves injecting a solution into the diseased vein, causing a reaction that destroys the vessel wall. Sclerosis (hardening) of the vein then results. Blood can no longer travel through it, and blood is therefore rerouted through healthy veins. Eventually, the varicose vein disappears. This is the method most commonly used for spider veins.

Varicose Veins represent not only an aesthetics issue, but also a potential health risk, and in many cases Sclerotherapy treatments are covered by OHIP.



The majority of people who have Sclerotherapy performed will see very good improvement with about 80% resolution of their varicose and spider veins. 

Large, swollen and symptomatic varicose vein injections are often, but not always covered by OHIP. ** Please note that in the video above, Dr. Martin says that the surgical treatment of varicose veins is free, but a few months later, OHIP decided to "delist" the treatment so surgery is no longer free in Ontario.

"Spider veins" are considered cosmetic and are not covered. Your insurance company may agree to pay some or all of the costs of solution, surgical tray, procedure costs or prescribed compression stockings. A detailed accounting for insurance forms will be provided upon receipt of services.

We offer diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities in a comfortable setting. Dr. Martin evaluates and treats patients with lower extremity problems caused by most types of vein problems, including:

  • Varicose veins of varying sizes
  • Spider veins (even the tiniest spider veins)
  • Chronically swollen legs
  • Leg pain, aching, or heaviness
  • Itching, burning, or restless legs

At your first visit, you will receive an evaluation to determine the type and severity of your vein condition. Whether you have a mild, moderate or severe vein problem, Dr. Martin and the nurses can advise you about your alternatives, and what results you can expect from treatment.

You will be surprised at how quick, easy, and comfortable the treatment can be. You'll relax in our treatment rooms while a highly-trained specialist works to make your veins disappear, area by area.

It is not unusual for our patients to suddenly need to go out and buy a pair of shorts – something that they have not done for years.


Treatment Alternatives

If you are suffering from varicose veins, you owe it to yourself to find out more. Your legs will feel better and look better before you know it.

Depending on the need, your treatment alternatives may include standard or ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy. All of these are medically proven techniques that are safe and effective. You'll walk in and walk out from your treatments and often won't have to take any time off work.

FAQ

I have those veins for a reason, right? So, if you inject them, what will my body do for circulation?

There are hundreds of potential routes back to your heart through other veins. The varicose veins are not doing much good for you – the flow is poor. The blood finds a new route.

Is exercise good or bad for varicose veins?

Great question. The answer is "yes" to both.

Blood from the feet begins its journey back to the heart through blood vessels called capillaries, which flow into progressively larger veins in the "superficial" venous system just under the skin. It then travels through "perforating veins" into the "deep system".

When the blood reaches each new level, specialized (but very fragile) valves hold the blood there. On the next contraction of the calf muscles, the blood is propelled up to the new level. As long as the tubes and valves are working properly, all is well. Strong muscles = great circulation.

However, sometimes, through no fault of their own, people have faulty valve systems. This is especially common in the superficial and perforator veins. When the valves allow back flow, suddenly the strong muscle contraction becomes the enemy, propelling blood BACKWARDS into the superficial veins and making varicose veins worse.
