Look and feel great fast... and without downtime or discomfort
Varicose veins are unpleasant, uncomfortable and unattractive — but they’re not uncommon. In fact, it’s estimated that 80% of Americans have either varicose veins or spider veins as a result of what’s called vascular reflux disease. Put more simply, varicose veins develop when blood pools in a vein, causing it to enlarge and bulge. Varicose veins are larger, closer to the surface and potentially more dangerous. Spider veins are a variation, usually smaller and forming a branching or spider-web pattern.
At Widmeyer Vein Center in Lynchburg, VA, we offer the most advanced treatments for both conditions, including laser treatment, ambulatory phlebectomy and other solutions. For people with varicose veins, we offer a clinically proven form of laser therapy, known as endovenous laser therapy, or EVLT. EVLT effectively eliminates varicose veins 98% of the time.
Though varicose and spider veins are common problems, every patient is different and benefits from individualized care.
