Bigger veins are also treated non-surgically. An endovenous laser technique is used to solve bigger vein problems in the legs.

Because the procedure is minimally invasive, you can return to daily activities the moment your treatment is done.

Varicose veins can be removed at almost no cost to you. Many insurances cover different varicose vein removal procedures.
