Christie Clinic Offers Treatment to Eliminate Varicose Veins

January 25, 2013

Christie Clinic Dermatologist Jeremy Youse, M.D., is now offering the VenaCure EVLT laser as a treatment option for patients with varicose veins. Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins that most commonly affect legs and feet. For most, these veins are a cosmetic concern, but for others varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort—sometimes leading to more serious problems.

The VenaCure EVLT treatment eliminates unsightly varicose veins with no hospital stay, minimal-to-no scarring and minimal-to-no side effects. “The VenaCure EVLT procedure is safe, fast and effective,” states Dr. Youse. “Patients can visit my office, receive treatment in less than an hour and return to normal activity almost immediately with little or no pain.”

VenaCure EVLT treatment does not require general anesthesia or hospitalization and has up to a 98% success rate. This procedure is typically covered by insurance.
