Comprehensive Vein Treatment and Vein Care Solutions in Fayetteville, NC & Surrounding Areas

For over 50 years, Valley Radiology has been at the forefront of medical imaging and diagnostic technology, offering a broad spectrum of healthcare resources to patients in southeastern North Carolina. We offer the latest minimally invasive vein treatment that delivers superior outcomes for a diverse patient population.

Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels that commonly appear near the skin’s surface, resembling a spider web. They can cause cosmetic distress and occasionally mild symptoms like itching or burning. Spider veins are often associated with genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, and prolonged standing or sitting. Treatment options include laser and sclerotherapy, effectively reducing their appearance and restoring skin aesthetics.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins that typically occur in the legs and feet. They are often visible as bulging, rope-like structures. They can cause discomfort, swelling, itching, and aching sensations, impacting an individual's quality of life. Treatment options range from minimally invasive procedures like radiofrequency ablation and sclerotherapy to lifestyle changes and compression therapy aimed at improving symptoms and preventing complications.

At Valley Radiology, we are proud to harness the most advanced vein treatment options in radiology, finding new ways to diagnose and treat patients across southeastern NC every day. Our comprehensive vein care includes the following procedures.

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation for Varicose Veins and Venous Insufficiency
  • ClariVein™, also known as mechanochemical endovenous ablation (MOCA), is a relatively new technology for treating bulging varicose veins and their underlying causes.
  • Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins
  • Liquid Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Endovenous Laser Ablation

This minimally invasive, low-risk treatment for varicose veins and venous insufficiency causes little or no pain, provides instant relief from symptoms, and offers a high success rate (98%). During the one-hour procedure, one of our Fayetteville interventional radiologists inserts a tiny catheter into the vein, applying laser energy to seal the vein and re-route the blood into other healthy veins.

ClariVein™ (MOCA)

ClariVein™, also known as mechanochemical endovenous ablation (MOCA), is a groundbreaking varicose vein treatment that effectively combines two mechanisms to treat damaged veins. This approach offers patients a safe, virtually painless, proven, and effective solution for varicose veins. ClariVein™ does not require the use of sometimes painful anesthesia and will not cause thermal agitation. This relatively painless procedure offers an impressive success rate with long-term treatment results.

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment for varicose veins. The procedure involves an interventional radiologist injecting a "sclerosing" solution into the vein, causing the vein to seal shut and become scar tissue. After the treatment, blood will circulate more effectively through other healthy veins, and the body will eventually absorb the internal scar tissue.

Liquid Sclerotherapy for Varicose Vein & Spider Vein Treatments

If you have varicose veins or spider veins, you're not alone. More than 80 million Americans live with some form of vein condition, and one out of every two people over the age of 50 suffers from varicose veins. Thankfully, our vein care experts at Valley Radiology can help with sought-after procedures like laser ablation and sclerotherapy.

Some common symptoms of venous insufficiency can be:

  • Aching, throbbing, or swelling in the legs
  • Pain and heaviness in the legs
  • Varicose and Spider veins
  • Elevating the legs relieves symptoms
  • Symptoms get worse later in the day
