Emory Aesthetic Center

Varicose Vein and Spider Vein Treatments

Current estimates are that more than 80 million Americans suffer from varicose veins and/or spider veins. While cosmetic improvement is often a factor in seeking treatment of varicose veins, Emory Healthcare understands that relief from pain is often the patient's primary concern. We provide the most comprehensive therapies available for the treatment of varicose veins and other venous disorders to ensure that both aesthetic concerns and painful symptoms are addressed simultaneously, effectively and safely.

Since vein disorders are not always visible, the diagnostic services available at Emory Healthcare are essential to determining cause and severity, the primary method being duplex ultrasound imaging, which uses sound waves to trace the patient's blood flow.

Once the diagnosis has been established, there are two primary modes of treatment for varicose veins: the conservative approach, which can involve such low-impact methods as compression stockings to support and compress veins and improve circulation; and the corrective approach, which uses procedures like sclerotherapy, Endolaser™ ablation or phlebectomy. In most cases, a combination of treatment methods for varicose veins is advised.

Options offered by Emory Healthcare for the treatment of varicose veins include:

Laser Treatment for Varicose Veins
Sclerotherapy for Spider Veins
Ambulatory Phlebectomy
