Vein Treatment Types
Endovenous Laser Therapy
The most advanced alternative to surgical stripping to treat varicose veins, this therapy involves a thin laser fiber which is inserted into the diseased vein, usually through a tiny puncture in the leg above where the visual symptoms appear. Laser energy is then delivered which causes the vein to close as the fiber is gradually removed. Schedule today!

A small amount of liquid is injected into the diseased vein which closes it off. Because there are many veins in the leg, the blood that would have flowed through the closed vein simply reroutes through other healthy veins after the procedure. The loss of the diseased vein is not a problem for the circulatory system. Varithena is the formula used to treat varicose veins for this type of therapy. A small amount of Varithena will be administered through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein.
For smaller veins and spider veins
Involved no anesthesia
Endovenous Radio Frequency Therapy
The Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (EVRFA) procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to effectively treat patients suffering from varicose veins or Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI).
We insert a catheter into a diseased vein to provide consistent and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and close.
After the vein is sealed shut, blood is then naturally redirected to healthy veins. The vein simply becomes fibrous tissue after treatment. Over time, the vein will gradually be completely absorbed into surrounding tissue.
This procedure diminishes varicose and spider veins with tiny needle injections of a medication that collapses the vein, which will later be absorbed into the body. The number of treatments varies according to size and type of veins. Normal activities may resume immediately. Varithena® is one type of sclerotherapy agent we offer. Your vein specialist will use a catheter or a direct injection to deliver a small amount of Varithena, an injectable foam medication that helps to close your vein.
Most healthy patients with varicose veins are eligible for varicose vein ablation. If you are pregnant and want to treat varicose veins, you'll need to consult with your doctor to discuss any risks that may be associated with ablation procedures.
You wear compression stockings to improve blood flow in the veins of your legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots.
A great Treatment for varicose veins and spider veins!
Wearing stockings helps with:
Aching and heavy feeling in legs
Swelling in legs
Preventing blood clots, primarily after surgery or injury when you are less active
Preventing complications of blood clots in the legs, such as post-phlebitic syndrome (pain and swelling in the leg)
