About Center for Vein Restoration in Downers Grove, Illinois
As the nation’s leader in vein care, Center for Vein Restoration brings the knowledge and compassionate treatment that we are known for to Downers Grove. Each of our 100+ vein clinic locations is supervised by a physician certified in vascular medicine and supported by experienced, caring staff.
With a sole focus on vein health, Center for Vein Restoration offers many minimally invasive surgical procedures to eliminate the discomfort and unsightly appearance of varicose veins and spider veins. Proven techniques such as sclerotherapy, laser ablation, and radiofrequency ablation use a safe, proven medicine or thermal heat to eliminate malfunctioning varicose veins. Uncomfortable varicose and spider veins eventually fade along with the discomfort. Ambulatory phlebotomy removes varicose veins through two tiny incisions.
Center for Vein Restoration doctors are also well-versed in newer innovations to treat varicose veins. VenaSeal seals off a damaged vein using a proprietary and safe medical adhesive. Employing both a sclerosing agent and a rotating wire tip, ClariVein closes the blocked vein. Once the vein is treated, blood flows to nearby healthy veins for smooth, clear skin.
Our physicians and staff will discuss each procedure in detail so you can make an informed decision. We’ll also guide you through the post-surgery period and provide lifestyle tips to ensure a complete and long-lasting recovery.
