Services at Center for Vein Restoration, Fairbanks
Diagnosis and treatment for varicose vein disease start with a complete health history. Blood can flow backward and pool if veins are damaged, causing a high-pressure buildup in the veins. A duplex ultrasound will painlessly assess blood flow in the legs using sound waves. Using this tool, our vein doctor can "see" how quickly and in what direction your blood flows. From this information, a treatment plan is developed to reduce or eliminate symptoms of venous disease.
Vein treatment types
Vein conditions are treated using minimally invasive outpatient procedures in the comfort of the Fairbanks, Alaska, vein clinic. Treatments include laser ablation, during which a thin fiber is gently inserted through the skin, heating the diseased vein, and radiofrequency ablation, in which radio waves heat and destroy the problem vein. After both procedures, blood is rerouted to healthier veins.
Treatment plans are customized to each patient's needs and may include one of the many other treatments offered at the Fairbanks, Alaska, vein clinic.

Our board-certified vascular surgeons offer a wide range of innovative treatment options for leg pain, swelling, cramping, itching, varicose veins, spider veins, restless leg syndrome, ulcers, and other symptoms of vascular disease.
Symptoms of vein problems
When the tiny valves in your leg veins fail to circulate blood back to the heart, it can be a sign of venous disease.
The result can be:
Feelings of heaviness
These symptoms are often the result of venous insufficiency and are unlikely to heal on their own. This common vein condition is progressive and will likely worsen without treatment.
Vein treatment options
Vein care providers at vein treatment clinics use the most advanced minimally invasive treatments available today. CVR’s modern outpatient treatment plans are far superior to the older vein-stripping methods used in the past.
Treatments include VenaSeal, a proprietary medical adhesive that safely closes off varicose veins, and ClariVein, a two-in-one approach that uses an ablation device to inject a sclerosing agent that closes the vein with a tiny rotating wire tip, which destroys the diseased vein.
At Center for Vein Restoration, we offer a wide variety of other treatment options, including:
Vein treatments take approximately an hour or less to complete, and patients can return to their normal routine immediately with few restrictions. No staples or stitches are required because a simple band-aid covers the tiny incisions. Our in-office treatment requires only local anesthetics, and recovery and symptom relief are fast, and there is little to no scarring.
