Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a progressive medical condition that affects millions of women and men and can significantly alter one’s lifestyle as a result of the potential pain, debilitation and unsightliness it can present. Early detection and treatment of CVI, the common underlying cause of leg discomfort, varicose veins, leg swelling, skin discoloration, and (in extreme cases) venous ulcers, is critical to maintain an active lifestyle and achieve optimal vascular health. These symptoms will worsen over time, and should be treated as soon as possible to avoid incremental discomfort and deeper venous complications.
An initial consultation will provide us with a full evaluation of your problem areas for proper diagnosis and treatment planning. We may require ultrasound examination if we suspect underlying venous disease to accurately visualize the diseased veins and any sources of reflux. This will allow us to diagnose your condition and recommend a treatment plan for optimal outcomes.
Patients seeking an effective, non-surgical treatment option that will give them fast relief from painful symptoms almost immediately would greatly benefit from endovenous radiofrequency thermal therapy. We offer Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy, a quick, in-office procedure, to resolve discomfort quickly and effectively while restoring the appearance of legs, without the need for hospitalization or a recovery period! Cosmetic sclerotherapy is also available to address non-symptomatic spider veins.
- We perform all procedures in our office.
- Treatments generally take approximately an hour.
- There is a quick recovery period post treatment.
- Most insurances, including Medicare, will pay for Venefit therapy with a diagnosis of venous reflux disease.
- Treatments are all very well-tolerated, so you will be comfortable throughout.

Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy
Formerly known as the VNUS Closure™ procedure, Venefit was designed specifically to treat and resolve venous complications, such as varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency. The Venefit procedure channels the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to evenly and uniformly heat the collagen in the vein walls in small segments, causing them to contract, collapse and close. After the diseased vein has been sealed, the blood re-routes itself to other healthy veins, and the treated veins will shrink and naturally be absorbed by the body. Learn more.
The Venefit procedure offers a number of advantages over other vein treatments, and provides a quick, comfortable recovery and a prompt return to everyday activities. Patients generally report resolution of the painful symptoms associated with venous insufficiency almost immediately if treated in its earlier stages and improved aesthetic appearance of their varicose veins, skin changes and wounds over time. The Venefit procedure has proven to be an effective, long-term solution to vein disease, with dramatically less post-procedure discomfort and bruising than alternative vein treatments (i.e. endovenous laser therapy & vein stripping). Studies have shown the VNUS Closure™ procedure has a lower recurrence rate when compared to laser therapy.
Sclerotherapy micro-injections collapse and shrink unsightly spider veins and some varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is most commonly used on the legs and ankles. Learn more.
