Vincent Vein Center offers a variety of vein care services. We provide personalized care and treatment options for each patient. Unlike larger vein clinics, we take the time to know each patient. No matter what concerns you have with your veins, we can assist you in determining the right plan for you. Below is a list of our areas served.
Endovenous Laser Treatment and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy are just a few of the services we offer. Endovenous Laser Treatment is specifically for much larger veins, in high pressure areas. This treatment is meant to repair damaged veins. A small fiber is inserted into the damaged vein, and then laser light heats the vein. This causes the vein tissue to interact with the laser, which allows the vein to close. The veins that close are superficial. After that process, the blood is routed to other healthy veins to move blood back to the heart.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is ideal for small to medium-sized varicose veins. Especially for those near the skin’s surface. The medication causes the vein to spasm and flatten. Over the period of 3-6 months the vein dissolves. Fortunately, there are not serious side effects of this treatment. In some cases, Endovenous Laser Treatment and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy are used in conjunction.
Cosmetic Vein Care
Visual Sclerotherapy is used for spider veins. Insurance does not cover this treatment because it is purely cosmetic. There is usually no pain with spider veins, however there can be minor irritation in the affected area. Usually, patients want them removed for appearance. A medication is injected into the spider veins, which irritates the vessels. This causes them to spasm immediately, and eventually dissolve over a few weeks after treatment. Maintenance treatments are required, usually every 2 to 3 years.
