Varicose veins are not only a cosmetic issue but can be indicative of more significant venous issues in the thighs and legs. It is important to seek treatment for early signs of superficial venous disease, such as swelling, throbbing and aching, so that preventative measures can be taken before venous disease progresses to more serious issues. We take care of our clients in a comfortable, manageable way and work to offer relatively quick, minimally invasive care that yields results. There's no need to worry about hiding your legs anymore!Learn More
Varicose veins are veins that have become abnormally swollen and large. Varicose veins are generally the result of valves within the veins becoming defective and insufficient. Varicose veins are sometimes bluish-green in color. They often protrude from the surface of the skin and frequently have a serpentine or ropy appearance.Learn More
Spider veins are small dilated vessels that appear near the skin's surface. They are often blue or purplish in color. Spider Veins cause no harm, however, they may offer a clue clinically that has venous disease deeper in their legs. Not every individual complaining of spider veins suffers from superficial venous disease, but some do. For the most part, treatment of spider veins is for cosmetic improvement. We treat cosmetic spider veins regularly at Cosmetic Laser Centers℠ with sclerotherapy.Learn More

Unlike traditional vein stripping which was performed in the hospital, we provide patients with a variety of minimally-invasive, outpatient treatment options. The field of phlebology is constantly growing. Traditional methods for vein care that were once painful and required heavy recovery time are being replaced with minimally painful outpatient surgical treatments. We understand that the idea of treating venous issues can be daunting, and many of our patients were unaware that treatments can be relatively quick, minimally painful and long-lasting.Learn More
