Different Types of Vein Treatment in Chicago

Posted on August 27th, 2018 by Dr. Michael M. Horn

As we age, our veins can become more apparent and pronounced, making us feel self-conscious and eager for a solution. Luckily, at the Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we are well-versed in vein treatment in Chicago and we can help you eliminate veins and restore the confidence you thought you no longer had. Both spider veins and varicose veins can be approached in a multitude of ways, and the approach typically depends on the type and the severity of your veins.

Laser Vein Removal

Laser vein removal is a popular option because it is minimally invasive compared to other options. Through highly concentrated beams of light energy, both spider veins and varicose veins can be removed. Plus, no general anesthesia is necessary.


Another popular option for vein treatment in Chicago is sclerotherapy. This means that there is a solution that is injected directly into your veins that turns them to turn white or fade, eventually disappearing. Sclerotherapy is especially helpful for eliminating spider veins.

Vein Removal Surgery

If you have severe varicose veins, vein removal surgery may be necessary. A local anesthetic and small incisions are utilized to either litigate or remove the area that is affected. No stitches are required, and patients can typically return to normal activities within a day after treatment is completed.

Vein treatment in Chicago is a small step to take that will have a huge impact on your confidence! If you’re interested in our services, feel free to contact us to schedule a consultation.
