STOP SUFFERING FROM UNSIGHTLY OR PAINFUL VARICOSE VEINS
TALK TO DR. CRAIG SCHWARTZ, KANSAS CITY’S LEADER IN TREATING VARICOSE VEINS
REQUEST A CONSULTATION
Varicose Veins are superficial veins that have lost their ability to appropriately carry blood up and out of the leg, thus allowing the blood to flow backward toward the feet.
Also known as venous insufficiency or venous reflux, varicose veins are a result of non-functioning valves inside the veins. Once a vein has become varicose, it won’t go back to normal and should be treated.
SYMPTOMS OF VARICOSE VEINS
- Dilated, bulging Leg Veins
- Veins popping out
- Leg pain, swelling, heaviness or fatigue at end of day
- Extensive varicosities on leg(s)
- Clusters of small spider veins on inside of ankles
- Brownish skin discoloration near ankles
- Open, weeping wounds or ulcers around ankles
Spider veins are smaller than varicose veins. They can appear on the face and legs, and they are usually an aesthetic rather than a health issue.
Spider veins form when high pressure in the venous system forces the thin-walled veins to expand. These engorged capillaries then expand to several times their normal size, causing spider veins.
SYMPTOMS OF SPIDER VEINS
- Tiny red, bluish or purplish “webs” on your legs
- Aching, itching, burning, throbbing
- Typically located on ankles, calves and thighs
- Often found on nose/face
Varicose veins are usually progressive, meaning that in most cases, they get worse over time if left untreated. We offer a range of treatments to target your varicose veins most effectively, including laser treatments, sclerotherapy, and other methods.
Spider veins are easily treated with a combination of superficial laser and sclerotherapy, a procedure involving an injection of a special highly concentrated chemical solution designed to eliminate the spider veins completely.
Almost anyone makes a good candidate for varicose vein treatment. These treatments are safe, minimally invasive, and performed in-office.
With such a wide range of treatment options, Dr. Schwartz can develop a treatment plan that will work safely for nearly anyone.
Some varicose and spider vein treatments can eliminate problem veins with one treatment. Others may require several sessions.
Depending on the procedure, you may see immediate improvements in the treated veins. Other procedure results can take several weeks to develop.
The results of varicose vein treatments eliminate the problem veins, and they will not reappear. However, new varicose veins can develop over time.
*All before and after photo results vary and are not guaranteed.
Most treatments for varicose and spider veins have little to no downtime.
You can return to most activities immediately. Walking daily after treatment promotes blood flow.
Your treatment team will review any specific instructions to follow after your procedure.

Reviews From Our Clients
Before the procedure I thought that my big, lumpy varicose veins would just be less noticeable, but now they are completely gone. I am so happy with the results and my legs look great. It’s been about 1 year since the procedure and I have no scars and of course no more lumpy veins.
