Vein Therapy

At L.A Vascular Specialists, we believe everyone deserves beautiful and pain-free skin. L.A Vascular Specialists have years of experience treating patients throughout the Los Angeles, Encino, Irvine, Glendale, and Beverly Hills areas, and we pride ourselves on using only the most advanced technologies and techniques in treating vein and skin conditions. That’s why we’re excited to offer a new form of treatment for varicose veins that’s minimally invasive, comfortable, and effective:
Venefit Targeted Endovenous Therapy.

What is Venefit at L.A Vascular Specialists?

Venefit is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to treat varicose veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). The procedure consists of inserting a catheter into the problem vein that applies uniform, consistent heat to the collagen in the vein walls, which causes the vein to close and heal over. Once the diseased vein closes, blood redirects to other, healthy veins, eliminating the varicose vein and restoring healthy blood flow.
Clinical studies have shown that Venefit patients suffer less bruising, pain, and complications than with comparable treatments, and Venefit also leaves almost no scarring – and it can be performed in a specialist clinic or same-day surgical facility under local anesthesia. All in all, Venefit has been proven to be up to four times faster in improving patient quality of life.

About Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) at L.A Vascular Specialists
Chronic Venous Insufficiency is a progressive condition where the valves that help carry blood from the legs up to the heart cease to function, causing blood to pool in the legs and swelling in certain veins. This pooling is called reflux, and it results in expansion of veins that then protrude and show through the skin. In addition to cosmetic problems, CVI can cause pain, swelling in the legs, heaviness and fatigue of the legs, and in severe cases, may cause serious skin problems or ulcers. The first stage of CVI is varicose veins, and without proper treatment, these seemingly harmless veins can progress to more serious – and more painful – stages of CVI.

It’s not possible to repair the damaged valves, so instead, treating CVI requires re-routing blood to flow through healthy, normal veins. The traditional treatment for this is to surgically remove the problem veins, which requires a complex and invasive procedure. Venefit, however, makes treatment simple and effective. It’s minimally invasive and closes the vein without having to surgically remove it, allowing blood to flow to other, healthy veins without the need for surgery.

Comparing Venefit & Other CVI Treatments at L.A Vascular Specialists

The two traditional treatments for CVI are surgical vein stripping and laser ablation. In vein stripping, a surgeon makes an incision in the thigh and ties off the vein, then uses a stripper tool to pull the vein out through another incision in the calf. In laser ablation, a laser is used to apply targeted heat to the vein, which causes the blood to heat to a boiling point and damages the vein enough that it closes – and the laser temperatures can easily reach over 700º C.
Venefit, on the other hand, uses a simple catheter to apply low-intensity heat directly to the walls of the vein, causing the vein to close without doing damage to surrounding tissues. Once the vein collapses, blood flows to other, healthy veins, and your body will eventually reabsorb the vein material. Venefit has been proven to result in less bruising, complications, and post-procedure pain.

Varicose Vein Myths

There are a number of common myths about varicose veins, how they form, and their treatment – so we want to take this opportunity to set the record straight.

Myth 1: Varicose veins don’t come from prolonged standing.

Truth: Actually, anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet is at increased risk for developing varicose veins. Regularly resting with the legs elevated above the heart can help to lower your risk if you spend a lot of time standing.
