Identifying your needs and the proper non-surgical vein treatment.
Not all patients need treatment for their varicose veins or spider veins. Many people have no pain or other symptoms. For these individuals, no treatment is necessary, unless they want the veins removed for cosmetic reasons.
Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn. They usually develop in the legs and can be seen through the skin and are most often seen on the legs or face.
Many patients with varicose veins complain of pain, described as an aching or cramping in the legs. Other common symptoms include tiredness, restlessness, burning, throbbing, tingling, or heaviness in the legs. Pain caused by varicose veins is usually relieved by elevating the legs or by wearing support hose.

Spider veins are smaller, red, purple, and blue vessels that are twisted and turning. Spider veins are easily visible through the skin. Spider Veins, like varicose veins, are most often seen on the legs or face.
There are a number of different methods used to treat spider veins. One method utilizes a laser that applies energy to the surface of the skin using a special hand piece. Other treatments include sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a solution into the vein or a combined laser and sclerotherapy treatment. Schedule a free consultation to discuss which method is right for you.
Spider Veins are not a definitive indicator of venous reflux disease and may appear on a patient with healthy vein valves. Only an ultrasound diagnosis can determine the presence of venous reflux disease.
