Microphlebectomy in Windermere
Treat Varicose Veins Without Surgery
Varicose veins are caused when weakened veins allow blood to flow in both directions and they can be very painful. A microphlebectomy in Windermere at Lumina Vein & Aesthetic Institute is an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that effectively removes superficial varicose veins. It’s an out-patient procedure that can help resolve the pain and discomfort and get you back to living your life to the fullest.

The Microphlebectomy Process
What to Expect?
Before receiving your treatment you'll sit down for an in-depth consultation with one of our experienced providers. Microphlebectomy is only one of the options we have at Lumina Vein & Aesthetic Institute for treating varicose veins in Windermere. We'll discuss your medical history, answer your questions, and address any concerns you have about the procedure.
We perform microphlebectomy treatments in our office. The whole treatment only takes 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the number. First, your provider will numb the treatment area. Tiny incisions are made and a small hooked instrument is used to remove the varicose veins. The incisions are small and don't require any stitches.
Follow any aftercare instructions provided. You can return to most normal activities within 24 hours. Avoid strenuous activities for at least 2 weeks.
Your provider may give you specific instructions to prepare for your procedure which you should follow. As an in-office, out-patient procedure, a microphlebectomy in Windermere doesn’t require a lot of preparation.
Follow any instructions your Lumina Vein & Aesthetic Institute provider gives you following your treatment. Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind.
- Keep your leg elevated if sitting for long periods of time.
- Wear your compression garment as directed.
- Walk daily.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I expect scarring after my microphlebectomy in Windermere?
Not at all! Your incisions should heal to the point of invisibility.
Can veins come back after treatment?
Unfortunately, varicose veins can be a chronic condition. While the veins removed during your treatment will not come back, it's not possible to predict whether other veins may lose function and become varicose.
Is it safe to have veins removed?
Yes, our bodies are incredibly adaptive. Your body will reroute blood to flow through stronger, healthier veins remaining in your leg.
