Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of your legs by treating damaged and broken veins. This treatment involves injections of a solution called a sclerosant. The purpose of a sclerosant is to damage the vein walls, which in turn, leads the blood to clot within the treated veins, ultimately stimulating the body to break down the damaged veins. Sclerotherapy usually involves multiple injections of approximately 8cc’s of solution during one hour sessions. After receiving injections, a prescription-strength compression stocking is applied to the treated legs of our patients.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a medical procedure in which part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, tumor, or other dysfunctional tissue is ablated using the heat generated from medium frequency alternating current.

Phlebectomy

Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small scalpel or needle to remove varicose veins that lie just beneath the surface of the leg. There are two basic types of phlebectomy: Ambulatory and Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy.

Varithena

Varithena is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces the appearance of targeted varicose veins through the injection of a foam solution directly into the problem veins. It is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatment that can improve blood flow and minimize the appearance of varicose veins.
