Laser Treatment For Varicose Veins


Varicose veins are not just a cosmetic issue; they are a sign of a more serious medical problem.

The good news is they are fixable.

For years, Joe Ryan’s varicose veins caused him terrible pain and almost cost him his life.

Varicose veins are a sign of poor blood flow and can lead to blood clots.

In just one hour, Joe had his veins treated with a laser.

It is a better and less invasive procedure than surgery or vein stripping.

Andrew Kwak, M.D., University of Pennsylvania said, "You are actually looking inside the leg with an ultrasound machine, find out exactly where you need to actually seal the vein off, and correct the problem."

Joe's doctor was able to correct years of damage.

Insurance will usually pay for the laser procedure, if you have pain.
