Vein Treatments ~ With advances in ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments, we can get rid of your varicose veins comfortably and effectively with little downtime. If left untreated, vein disease can lead to significant medical complications. Because of this, most insurance companies cover treatment of symptomatic vein problems. Now varicose veins can be treated from inside the vein, a procedure called vein ablation, without the trauma associated with old-school vein stripping. The procedure is done in our medical office under local anesthesia with no scarring. Patients return to their regular activities within one to two days. Symptoms such as swelling, tenderness, restlessness, heaviness and fatigue in the legs are often caused by vein disease; treating the damaged veins relieves these uncomfortable symptoms and restores proper circulation.
We also treat spider veins, the cosmetic, superficial veins that make legs and other areas unsightly. Using sclerotherapy and a course of treatment determined by the doctor, we eradicate these annoying marks and restore beautiful legs.
Spider veins may also appear on the face or hands; and as red veins on the nose. We easily treat these and the bluish veins that may cause eyes to look darkened or injured.
