Vein Treatment Options

There’s no worse feeling than being embarrassed about your veins and doing everything in your power to cover them up. This is where our vein treatment in Arlington Heights comes into play. We offer several different vein treatments to help our patients get rid of veins about which they are embarrassed. Read about the different types of vein treatments here:

Endovenous Laser Ablation

This is a minimally invasive procedure at our office. Dr. Ashpole will insert a laser fiber directly into the varicose vein to heat the lining within the vein and cause it to collapse, shrink and eventually disappear. The procedure is relatively painless, and it takes less than an hour to complete! Recovery is easy; Dr. Ashpole will apply a compression bandage to the treated area and you’ll need to wear it for about one week.


Sclerotherapy is another vein treatment in Arlington Heights that is geared towards treating smaller veins. Rest assured that we only use the most recent FDA-approved medicines! Similar to endovenous laser ablation, sclerotherapy also utilizes injecting a chemical into veins to help minimize their appearance.

Is It Okay to Lose a Vein?

You may be wondering if it is safe to lose a vein. Losing a vein that is engorged does not have any negative effects on your body! Healthy veins are not touched, and they continue to thrive and carry blood away from your heart.
