Primarily found in the legs and feet, varicose veins appear as blue, bulging or twisted vessels that protrude from the surface of the skin. This vascular insufficiency develops when blood pools in the veins as it is being pumped from the lower body back to the heart against gravity, causing the veins to bulge and twist. Although varicose veins can cause symptoms in some patients, others choose to get them removed for aesthetic reasons.

At Rosen Vein Care, we have multiple treatments available for the safe and effective treatment of two types of varicose veins:
Using ultrasound guidance for accuracy and precision, Dr. Rosen will create a tiny incision in the leg and insert a thin, delicate laser fiber through a segment of the affected vein. From there, a medicated solution is injected and the vein is gently heat-sealed shut. The vein is then permanently closed off and is naturally removed by the body.
Similar to endovenous laser ablation, ClariVein®, or MOCA, is inserted through a sterile IV process. After being accurately guided into the affected vein using ultrasound imaging, this advanced technology gently rotates at a high speed, delivering a medicated chemical that causes the vein walls to stick together, permanently closing it and rerouting blood through healthier vessels.
Designed to treat some types of superficial veins, sclerotherapy is a quick, easy treatment where a medicated sodium chloride solution is injected directly into the vein, disrupting the lining of the vessel walls and causing it to clot. The vein then turns to scar tissue that is gradually removed by the body and replaced with healthy tissue. Not all varicose veins can be treated with sclerotherapy, and Dr. Rosen will advise you during your consultation if this treatment option is available to you.
During your consultation with Dr. Rosen, your individual condition will be evaluated, and the best treatment with the least amount of downtime will be recommended for your varicose veins.
