What is venous insufficiency?
Spider VeinsSpider veins (not to be confused with varicose veins) are dilated or stretched blood vessels that have a branching pattern and are commonly found on the thigh, lower leg and occasionally on the face. Spider veins are progressive in nature and usually increase in number and visibility with age. Sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments are used to treat these vessels, erasing them from your skin.

Varicose VeinsVaricose veins are enlarged and sometimes twisted veins on the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are caused by weakening of the valves and veins in your legs. The body has over 60,000 miles of veins! Normally, one-way valves keep blood that is pushed up the leg by muscles from flowing back down the legs toward the feet. When these valves do not work as they should, blood does not get out of your legs, and the venous pressure builds up. Under normal circumstances it is normal to have low pressure in the venous system and high pressure in the arterial system. Varicose veins are a sign that the venous pressure is increasing in the lower legs. The veins then may become weak, enlarged, and twisted. Learn More
Venous UlcersVenous ulcers are non-healing wounds that most commonly occur above the ankles. Advanced vein disease presents as venous ulcers that are classified as healing or non healing. A venous skin ulcer is a sore on your leg that’s very slow to heal, usually because of weak blood circulation in the limb.They can last anywhere from a few weeks to years. You may hear a doctor or nurse call them “venous leg ulcers.” Venous ulcers adversily affect your lifestyle and lead to more serious problems if you don’t have them treated. But there are steps you can take to prevent them from happening. Take a Free Vein Screening! Learn More

Patient Success Stories
“Dr. Larson is very thorough in explaining the process and made me feel comfortable. The procedure was smooth and I woke up and back to work the next day. Happy with results. I went to another Doctor 5 years ago for the same issues in my right leg and didn’t have a good experience during Nor post surgery. It was night and day with Dr. Larson! Thank you” – KateSee More
