You aren't alone. More than 25 million Americans suffer from varicose veins. That includes almost 40% of women and 25% of men!
…varicose veins can still make you uncomfortable wearing shorts – or a swim suit – when it's really too hot and uncomfortable outside not to.
What many people don't know is varicose veins often affect more than just your appearance.
Varicose veins can be very uncomfortable, causing fatigue, swelling of the ankles and progressively increasing pain. They can also lead to a number of other conditions, such as:

Endovenous laser treatment is a virtually painless (for most people*), state-of-the-art procedure for treating varicose veins.
You might hear it called by many names: laser vein treatment, laser vein therapy, endovenous laser ablation – or just EVLT or EVLA.
EVLT is a non-surgical technique that works for both women and men and offers several benefits:
Bottom line: EVLT is a safe, effective way to eliminate varicose veins.
Once the vein is sealed, the blood automatically flows to and through other veins. This is safe because each treated vein really handles only a small amount of blood flow.
Most EVLT patients can get back to their normal activities on the day of the procedure.
Actually, many of them find they're back to normal immediately.*

EVLT procedures at The Vein Care Center are performed by board-certified cardiovascular† and thoracic surgeons‡.
Many places treat varicose veins. But not all clinics have such qualified experts doing the treatments.
The Vein Care Center offers varicose vein patients a safe, effective, non-surgical alternative to conventional surgical remedies and spider vein treatments.
As noted above, endovenous laser treatment is covered by insurance in most cases.
Actually, there are much fewer insurance denials with laser therapy than with radiofrequency treatment, which is another common approach you might have heard of.

*Note: Results do vary from one person to another, and it's very hard to predict how any one patient will respond to the treatment. Though this is the case with only a small minority of patients, some will experience more than minimal discomfort or pain from the treatment and, in some cases, find that it takes a few days or even a few weeks before they feel totally "back to normal."
