Vascular

Treatment of veins and vascular lesion can be tricky. Port wine stains require multiple different lasers for the best treatment. Blindly treating superficial veins with sclerotherapy will mask deeper medical issues in up to 50% of the patients. We have over 10 years’ experience in treating vascular issues. Our Staff is committed to addressing all of your vein concerns and providing the best options available under one roof.

What Are Your Concerns?

Facial Veins, Redness, and Vascular Lesions

Facial Veins

People often think of facial veins as “broken capillaries” when in fact they are dilated or enlarged vessels. These can be caused by sun, genetics, or trauma. These veins can be treated with a simple office procedure that produces results immediately.

Facial Redness or Rosacea

Facial redness can occur from too much sun exposure, but it may also be due to rosacea. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition caused by the dilation of small blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. It is characterized by facial redness, especially on the cheeks, nose, and forehead. In some cases, small red bumps and pustules may develop. This condition usually becomes more noticeable after 30 years of age.

Birthmarks and Vascular Lesions

A port-wine stain is a red/purple birthmark caused by the malformation of capillaries (tiny blood vessels) in the affected area of the skin. Infants’ and children’s port-wine stains are usually flat and light in color, but as they mature, the birthmarks generally darken and become thicker. Small disfiguring lumps may also develop. Cherry hemangiomas are common benign vascular lesions resulting from dilated venules. These lesions can appear on almost any area of the body and present as small red macules, which may grow in size and number as a person ages. A venous lake is another vascular lesion that forms as a result of dilated venules. Although these dark blue pigmented lesions are benign, they can appear to mimic malignant lesions, such as basal cell carcinoma and melanoma.

Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL)

The Pulsed Dye Laser delivers a concentrated beam of light that heats the proteins in the walls of the affected blood vessels, which causes them to coagulate. This damages the blood vessels without harming the surrounding skin. Treatment takes just a few minutes to complete and requires no downtime. You will notice your beautiful, even complexion become apparent over the next few weeks as the body’s immune system naturally removes the damaged vessels.

Spider Veins

Spider Veins

Spider veins, or telangiectasias, are branch-like blood vessels near the surface of the skin that appear red, purple, or blue and span greater than one millimeter. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and legs. Spider veins can be caused by heredity, excessive standing, obesity, trauma, and exposure to UV radiation or excessive heat. Spider veins can be a sign of a more serious problem in the deeper veins, requiring medical attention.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy treatment involves the injection of a medication into the dilated vessels. The medication makes the vein walls sticky, which causes them to close. You will notice your more even, vein-free complexion become apparent over the next few weeks as the body’s immune system naturally removes the damaged vessels.


Varicose Veins and Common Symptoms

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted blood vessels that bulge from the skin and can cause aching and pain. Untreated varicose veins can also lead to chronic skin ulcers and blood clots. These damaged veins are caused by broken valves within the vessels that allow backwards blood flow. The blood then pools in the vein and causes its enlargement. Varicose veins most commonly occur in the legs.

Common Symptoms

Do you suffer from any of the following common symptoms listed below?

  • Pain in the legs

  • Swelling in the legs

  • Tired legs

  • Heaviness in the legs

  • Aching in the legs

  • Discoloration of the skin around the foot or ankle

  • Night time leg cramps

  • Restless Leg Syndrome: People with restless legs syndrome (RLS) experience discomfort, aching, cramping, itching, tingling, or agitation in their legs that causes an uncontrollable urge to move them.

  • Ulcer: A venous ulcer appears as a shallow wound in the skin and is typically located on the lower leg between the calf and the ankle. The wound takes a long time to heal and often recurs if treatment is not performed.

These issues may be indications of venous insufficiency, which is a condition that can cause a variety of symptoms in the legs. This condition is characterized by weak or malfunctioning valves in the veins that allow blood to flow in the wrong direction.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

Endovenous Laser Ablation treatment involves the insertion of a small laser into the affected vein(s), which delivers light waves that safely closes even the most severely damaged veins. Treatment can be completed in about an hour, and you will be walking the same day and able to resume light activity the next day. Your skin will become smoother and healthier over the next one to two weeks as the body’s immune system naturally removes the damaged vessels.


VenaSeal™ is a groundbreaking, innovative treatment for varicose veins and venous reflux. This treatment uses medical-grade glue to close the vein without any heat, anesthesia, or irritating solutions.


Endovenous Radiofrequency

Endovenous radiofrequency (EVRF) is a procedure that safely and effectively closes down damaged veins such as varicose veins and other veins leading to leg ulcers. By using the ClosureFast™ system, the unhealthy veins are shut down by low heat controlled by radiofrequency energy, which forces the blood to flow through the healthier veins. EVRF patients can return to normal activities a few days after the procedure, and the results typically last about five years.
