Vein and Wound Center 
 
 
 
 

The Vein and Wound Center offers comprehensive cosmetic and medical treatment of spider veins and varicose veins. We also offer laser hair removal services that reduce and remove hair on various parts of the body.

In addition to our Vein services, the center offers medical treatment of chronic non-healing wounds. Chronic wounds are those which have not shown significant improvement within four weeks or complete healing within eight weeks.

Our Staff
Staffed by physicians specializing in vascular surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and podiatry, the Vein and Wound Center brings several specialties together to provide coordinated comprehensive vein therapy care. In addition, nurses trained in sclerotherapy and trained in laser technology work together with our team of physicians to help remove unsightly veins and may restore your skin’s natural and healthy appearance.

What are Spider and Varicose Veins?

Spider veins are thread-like superficial veins that appear red or blue and are most commonly seen on the legs and can also appear on the face. Varicose veins are larger dilated blood vessels that may be raised above the skin’s surface and form when the walls and valves of the veins weaken. Although these blemishes are generally harmless, varicose veins may cause pain and tiredness in the legs and ankles, swelling and ulcers.

In addition to vein therapy, we offer Laser Hair Removal. The Vein and Wound Center’s 1064nm laser is designed to reduce hair growth permanently. The laser can also treat many skin types, including tanned and darker skin. Click here to find out more information about our Laser Hair Removal Services.
