What Can Be Treated?

Varicose Veins

  • A common problem that affects millions of individuals—with women being more likely affected than men.
  • Large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn.

Spider Veins

  • Smaller than varicose veins.
  • Red, purple, and blue vessels that also twist and turn.
  • Easily visible through the skin.
  • Typically visible on the legs and face.

Purple skin pigment

  • Usually caused by poor circulation and skin inflammation that develops with poor circulation.
  • Most often occurs in the lower legs, but can be on the face as well.
  • Caused by prolonged periods of standing or sitting, trauma, weight gain, pregnancy, heredity, and hormonal changes.
  • Wounds may occur because of improper functioning of venous valves.

Our Solutions

Laser Treatment

  • One of the most requested aesthetic procedures.
  • Using a combination of therapies, our practitioners can safely and effectively treat both superficial and deep spider veins and varicose veins—as well as hemosiderin staining (brown, yellow, or black pigmentation).
  • Vessels can be selectively heated and collapsed without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue, thanks to selective photo thermolysis.
  • Minimal risk of side effects.
  • No need for injections.
  • Because treatment often requires multiple wavelengths, our laser puts this at the fingertips of the practitioner.

Sclerotherapy

  • A time-tested medical procedure that eliminates varicose veins and spider veins.
  • Involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein, which irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue and fades from view.
  • Minimally invasive.
  • Patients may experience some short-lived, mild discomfort as a result of the injections.

Compression Stockings

Anyone’s legs can feel better while wearing gradient compression stockings, especially those of us who spend too much time in sedentary sitting or standing positions.

  • Available at Kohll’s Pharmacy in below-the-knee, above-the-knee, and pantyhose styles
  • Can be measured for your particular size
  • May be covered by insurance

Compression stockings work by applying graduated pressure along the legs. In other words, compression stockings are tighter at the ankle and decrease in pressure as you move up the leg.

  • This compression of the surface arteries, veins, and muscles improves blood circulation.
  • Increased blood flow can help relieve many different medical conditions.

The most conservative approach is simply to wear properly-fitting support hose, especially when the veins cause painful or uncomfortable symptoms.
