Vericose Veins

Non-Surgical Treatments

Injecting the unwanted veins with a sclerosing solution causes the target vein to shrink, and then dissolve over a period of weeks, as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein.

Lasers are effective in treating smaller more layered or toughted spider veins.  Laser light energy is delivered into the veins causing heat destruction of the vein.

Surgical Treatments

The Trans-illuminated Power Phlebectomy System (TIPPS) is a minimally invasive, varicose vein removal (ambulatory phlebectomy) technique that allows for the surgeon to visualize the blood vessels under the skin and target them for removal.
