Varicose Vein Removal in Santa Monica


Large varicose veins are unsightly on the legs and thighs. Our state-of-the-art vein center offers newer treatments to help you improve the look of your veins and improve your vein circulatory health. 
The Santa Monica Vein Center is located on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, as part of Kare Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Center. Our comprehensive center is led by our board certified team of vein surgeons who are proficient in all aspects of vein care. We serve the Los Angeles westside communities of the Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Marina Del Rey, and Venice. 
Some large varicose veins may require a surgical treatment known as mini-phlectomy to remove large varicose veins. Other descriptors used to describe this procedure include ambulatory phlebectomy and microphlebectomy. 
In this minor surgical procedure, tiny incisions are made in the skin through which large varicose veins are surgically removed. The incisions are often so small, they do not require stitches to heal. Our office uses plastic surgery principles to repair the wounds and improve the cosmetic outcome of the procedure. 
Mini-phlebectomy is typically performed in the office under local anesthesia with or without sedation. Phlebectomy might be done along with another treatment for varicose veins, including the following: 
·      Spider vein removal
·      Spider vein laser treatment
·      Vein gogh
·      Facial spider vein removal
·      Eyelid vein removal
·      EVLA
·      VNUS treatment
·      Laser vein ablation
·      Sclerotherapy
We find that these combination produce very satisfactory results from a medical and cosmetic standpoint. Call the Santa Monica Vein Center located at Kare Plastic Surgery today at (310) 998-5533.
