Before & After Photo of Spider Veins

Varicose Veins are small patches of veins that are twisted, swollen, and enlarged. Varicose veins range from blue, red, or purple based on the oxygen levels in your veins. A red hue indicates a higher level of oxygen, while blue hues have lower oxygen levels.

Varicose veins can appear anywhere on the surface of the skin. The most common area is in the legs. The legs carry a lot of stress and pressure in the veins by being upright.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Veins contain valves that pump blood flow through your body. The valves open for blood to flow in your veins and then close back up to prevent the blood from flowing back down. When the valves fail, blood flows backward, cause Venous insufficiency—or venous reflux disease. Venous insufficiency are valves that are damaged. When left untreated, varicose veins only get worse over time. They can eventually cause severe and deadly diseases such as:

Varicose veins can appear on any individual. Here are some common risk factors:

  • Pregnancy
  • Hormones
  • Overweight
  • Immobilization
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Gender

What are the symptoms?

Not all varicose veins have symptoms or pain. Individuals seek treatment as a cosmetic procedure.

While some varicose vein removal may seem like a cosmetic issue, they can indicate a more serious underlying problem. It can affect the cardiovascular system as a whole.

Symptoms include:

  • Swelling
  • Pain, cramps or throbbing
  • Itchy uncomfortable skin
  • Permanent discoloration


Doctor Examines X-ray

At Beverly Hills Vein and Cardiovascular Institute, our goal is to diagnose the source of your vein problems.

Our staff will do a thorough and comprehensive examination of your vein’s health. We will measure the amount of blood flow through your leg veins by doing a venous duplex and reflux scanning. Venous duplex is a painless exam using high-frequency sound waves. The sound waves to determine the presence of blockages in the arteries and veins.

What is the Varicose Veins treatment?

At Beverly Hills Vein and Cardiovascular Institute, we offer the best removal treatment options.

The Madyoon Method first diagnoses patients with a comprehensive venous Doppler ultrasound. The ultrasound checks the circulations of your leg veins. We use our unique approach of looking upstream in the venous system—with an MRI when necessary.

Multiple treatment modalities include:

  • Radiofrequency vein ablation with the VNUS® system,
  • Varithena®
  • Sclerotherapy
  • Microphlebectomy

We treat the underlying cause of varicose veins first with venous ablation therapy. We do this by using radio-frequency technology. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a simple procedure. RFA uses an electric current to heat a small area of nerve tissue. The heat stops it from sending pain signals and provides lasting relief.

Then we use surface body laser and sclerotherapy to treat the small secondary veins. The goal of the laser treatment is to eliminate the defective veins and force blood to return to the heart through the deep vein system. By doing so, it creates a varicose and spider vein free look with lasting results and no discoloration of the skin. We use only the latest and highest quality injectables and the most potent high energy laser machine for the treatment of spider veins.
