Get great results with Varicose Vein Removal!

Ease your symptoms and improve the appearance of veins with varicose vein removal. Varicose Veins are a common condition where veins become twisted or swollen just under the surface of the skin. Over 40 million Americans are affected by varicose veins. Some of our patients experience few signs or symptoms. Others encounter more serious complications such as: mild to moderate pain, heavy feeling legs, restless leg, mild swelling at the ankles, leg cramping, and skin irritation or discoloration.

Denver Vein Center provides you with multiple treatment options to get you looking and feeling your best! In order to determine the cause of your varicose veins, a non-invasive ultrasound test will be performed. After the cause of the varicose vein is discovered, a proper treatment plan can take place. Many treatments for varicose vein removal are efficient and don’t require long recovery. Cutting-edge treatment for varicose vein removal include: Endovenous Laser Ablation of the Saphenous Vein (ELAS), Ambulatory Phlebectomy, and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy.

Endovenous Laser Ablation of the Saphenous Vein (ELAS) can treat varicose veins helping to alleviate symptoms and make your legs look and feel better. This outpatient treatment can remove varicose veins permanently and ease symptoms such as aching, swelling and inflammation. This treatment is less invasive than standard surgery and leaves virtually no scars. Normal activity can usually be resumed in 1-2 days.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a method used to remove very twisted varicose veins, using tiny punctures on the surface of the legs, from which the veins are removed. Treatment is performed under local anesthetic, and the incisions are so small, that stitches aren’t needed. This procedure also offers great long term results.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is a gold-standard, non-invasive procedure that can remove unsightly veins with no scarring. This painless treatment involves injecting a solution into the root of problem veins and requires no downtime for patients.

Post treatment patients may be required to wear compression stockings. Varicose vein removal can provide exceptional long term or permanent results in many cases. Lifestyle changes can help prevent new varicose veins after your varicose vein removal. Some changes include: physical activity to keep legs moving, managing body weight, not wearing high heels for extended periods of time, and avoiding standing or sitting for long periods of time.
