Endovenous laser, or EVL, is revolutionizing the treatment of varicose veins. We offer an advanced, nonsurgical office procedure that can treat your varicose veins rapidly and with minimal discomfort. EVL is done with the patient under local anesthesia, as a laser heats and seals malfunctioning veins. Once the procedure is completed, the patient can immediately return to daily activity.
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a method used to remove larger and thicker surface varicose veins that cannot be treated with endovenous laser therapy. These veins often appear as spongy, coiled veins just beneath the skin.
Unlike traditional surgical techniques, the ambulatory phlebectomy procedure uses micro-incisions to gently remove the undesired veins. The incisions are so small that stitches are generally not necessary, and there is virtually no scarring.
Aesthetic Vein Treatment
Spider veins are very small, superficial veins that can be treated using sclerotherapy or a topical laser. These delicate yet unsightly veins can diminish within weeks of treatment, making legs appear years younger, healthier, and more attractive.
Sclerotherapy is a simple and effective treatment for unwanted spider veins. In this procedure a solution is injected into the spider vein with a fine needle, causing it to shrink. Over time, the treated blood vessels fade and disappear.
Topical laser therapy is used alone or in conjunction with sclerotherapy to treat spider veins. The laser delivers short pulses of light to the targeted vein that eventually eradicate the vein. The laser is cool, providing extremely gentle treatment to the patient with effective results.
