Varicose veins are enlarged and twisted veins that can occur anywhere in the body but are most commonly found in the legs. They are caused by weakened vein walls or valves, which allow blood to flow backward and pool within the vein.
Although they don’t always require medical attention, varicose veins can be uncomfortable and can sometimes lead to more concerning issues. Because they are visible on the skin, many people feel self-conscious or embarrassed by having them.
How do I know if I need Varicose Vein Treatment?
Varicose veins are swollen veins on the legs and feet. Usually they have bluish or blue-green color.
If these symptoms describe you, or if you have tired, aching legs you need to schedule an appointment with the Vein Treatment Clinic of Tulsa.
- Aching Legs
- Swollen ankles
- Throbbing Legs
- Restless legs
- Feeling of Heaviness in the legs
- Itching over the site of the vein

Varicose veins can be a hereditary condition. But not always. Increased pressure in the veins has been linked to their development.
Risk factors for varicose veins include:
- Being overweight or obese
- Advancing in age
- Being female
- Leading a sedentary lifestyle
- Suffering from leg injuries
- Carrying a child during pregnancy
- Consuming oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapies
Specialized Treatment for Varicose Veins in Tulsa
Before determining which treatment is most suitable for varicose veins, it is essential to identify the root cause of the issue. At the Vein Treatment Clinic of Tulsa, we will perform a non-invasive ultrasound test allowing our doctors, who are specialized in varicose veins, to determine the best treatment for you.
Your Specialized Treatment for Varicose Veins may include the following:
RF Ablation is a minimally invasive technique for varicose veins that seals off the diseased vein, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins in the legs.
VenaSeal Closure Procedure
The VenaSeal Closure Procedure is an FDA-approved procedure that uses an injection of medical adhesive to close varicose veins.
Varithena is a clinically proven treatment for varicose veins that combines guided ultrasound with an injectable microfoam. When Varithena is introduced into a diseased vein via guided ultrasound, the blood within is displaced and the vein begins to collapse. This collapse of the vein stops the backflow of blood from occurring and redirects blood upward and into nearby healthy veins that can handle the optimal flow. After the office treatment, patients can return home and resume most activities the same day.
