Do you have difficulty living with painful, bulging, and unsightly veins? You don’t have to suffer anymore. Technology has made varicose veins very treatable without invasive vein surgery. Many people are surprised to learn that varicose vein treatment is covered by most insurance.

pic-article02“Varicose veins are more than a cosmetic issue,” said Dr. Gamal Wazni, medical director and co-founder of Metro Vein Centers in West Bloomfield, Rochester Hills, and Dearborn. Dr. Wazni explained that the underlying problem occurs when the valves in your veins don’t work. Blood pools at the bottom of your legs, causing swelling, aching, cramps and heaviness in the legs. Left untreated, symptoms may progress and develop into more serious complications.

He and his partner, Dr. Ali Meslemani, use a sophisticated ultrasound to identify where the bad veins are and then employ high tech medical lasers to seal off the veins. The procedure is painless and requires little to no downtime.

“We can close a bad vein in about 45 minutes,” said Dr. Wazni. “Patients generally require one to four treatments, depending on their legs.

There is no recovery time. They can walk around, go shopping, or return to work right after their appointment.”

Metro Vein Centers also treats spider veins through the use of sclerotherapy. Veins are injected with a medication that causes them to close down. Over time, the veins become reabsorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy is an effective and safe treatment for spider veins when performed by qualified medical doctors.

Doctors Wazni and Meslemani are innovative experts in vein disease treatment with years of experience and outstanding reputations throughout metro Detroit. They are dedicated to helping patients regain normal, smooth, and healthy legs.
