Endovenous Laser Therapy
Endovenous Laser Therapy, known as EVLT, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat unsightly varicose veins. It is an alternative to the painful, lengthy ligation and stripping procedure. EVLT is fast, safe, and effective and provides cosmetic benefits which improve the patient’s quality of life. This simple procedure is performed in the doctor’s office and takes less than an hour.
- Performed in-office in about 45-60 minutes, with minimal discomfort to no pain
- Resume normal activity immediately after procedure
- Safe and effective
Endovenous radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive alternative to vein stripping for the treatment of varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins in which the valves are damaged to the point that there is a backflow of blood, called venous reflux. Venous reflux interferes with efficient circulation and causes blood to pool in the affected veins and cause distention.
- Effective, non-surgical alternative
- Resume normal activity as soon as you leave the clinic
- Minimal discomfort to no pain procedure
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to treat varicose and spider veins, most commonly found on the legs, by collapsing them through the use of a solvent. Sclerotherapy has been used on patients since the 1930s with great success, producing increasingly effective medical, as well as cosmetic, results.
- Performed in office in about 30 minutes
- Minimal to no pain procedure
- Covered by most insurances
Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face or legs, and may looks like a series of thin tree branches or strands of a spider web. While most spider veins are of purely cosmetic concern, some patients may also experience uncomfortable symptoms such as aching, burning, swelling and cramping of the legs from this condition.
- Minimal discomfort to no pain, performed in office in about 30 minutes
- Designed to removed unsightly spider veins
- May resume activity immediately
An ambulatory phlebectomy, also called a microphlebectomy or stab phlebectomy, is an outpatient procedure performed to remove spider and varicose veins through small, slit-like incisions in the skin. When varicose veins near the surface of the skin are too large to treat with sclerotherapy and too small to treat with laser ablation, microphlebectomy is the preferred treatment.
- In-office procedure
- Done under local anesthesia in about 45-60 minutes
- Resume activity immediately
