The Laser and Varicose Vein Treatment Center provides patients with a safe and highly effective solution for the permanent removal of spider and varicose veins.
In the United States, nearly 50% of the adult population suffers from undesirable, sometimes painful vein diseases. The most common forms are spider veins (small blue or red vessels visible within the skin, usually on the leg, face, neck or chest) and varicose veins (dilated and ropy appearing blue vessels visible under the skin).
Lasers have revolutionized the treatment of varicose veins – and today the Laser and Varicose Vein Treatment Center offers new hope to those suffering from unsightly spider or varicose veins. Our ultra-modern practice employs the unique, FDA-cleared D940 laser system to gently eliminate both spider and varicose veins.
Varicose veins typically cause pain, fatigue and swelling – and sometimes even more serious complications such as blood clots and leg ulcers. Until recently, the removal of varicose veins required the actual stripping of the vein – a surgical procedure that requires hospital stay, painful recovery and possible scarring from incisions and post-operative infections.
