Laser Vein Center is a medical practice that incorporates advanced and innovative medical technology into a relaxed ad comfortable atmosphere. We treat all the manifestations of vein disease, an often under-appreciated disease. Vein disease treatment starts with a comprehensive evaluation by ultrasound of the venous circulation in your lower extremities. If underlying venous insufficiency (backflow) is found in the main veins of the legs, we treat that with Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLT). We also treat the smaller veins with Sclerotherapy.
Our practice is the only practice in the area that accepts and is credentialed with all of the insurance carriers in the region, which often makes us the most affordable provider of these services.

Vein Treatments ~ With advances in ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments, you can get rid of your varicose veins more effectively. If left untreated, vein disease can lead to significant medical complications. Because of this, most insurance companies will pay for the treatment of symptomatic vein problems. Now varicose veins can be treated with a laser inside the vein, called endovenous laser ablation, without the trauma associated with vein stripping. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia with no scarring. Patients undergoing this procedure can return to their regular activities within one to two days. Symptoms such as swelling, tenderness, restlessness, and fatigue in the legs are often caused by vein disease. Botox Cosmetic ~ is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in adults from 18 to 65 years of age.
