If you're one of the 60 percent of Americans who suffer from varicose veins, you're in for some good news - treating them is getting increasingly easier. Breakthrough procedures have changed the game, essentially taking pain and inconvenience out of the equation. Building on that momentum, the expansion of USA Vein Clinics makes finding a doctor even easier.

There are now 24 USA Vein Clinics located from coast to coast. Each location specializes in treating a variety of vascular disorders including spider veins and varicose veins. Another bit of good news is that many patients also enjoy full insurance coverage for their procedures.
The newest USA Vein facility was just unveiled in Hallandale Beach, Florida back in March. Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) is among the clinic's most popular offerings. The treatment represents a cutting-edge way of treating malfunctioning veins. Instead of stripping the vein and removing it entirely (an outdated procedure), EVLT utilizes laser energy to seal off the vein that isn't functioning properly. Another perk is that this technique is anything but invasive. Clarivein is another minimally invasive approach that has a very high success rate.
While these kinds of treatments are indeed important, USA Vein Clinics is also happy that their new locations will help increase the clinic's overall medical reach. Not only can circulation issues cause unsightly, bulging veins; they can also cause persistent cramping, heaviness in the legs and more. In extreme cases, they can even result in dangerous blood clots, ulcers or infections.
Fortunately, many of the in-and-out treatments offered at USA Vein Clinics are associated with a nearly 100 percent success rate. This is precisely why it was named "Best Vein Clinic" three years in a row by "Home Reporter."
And as summer approaches, now is the perfect time to get your legs beach-ready.
