Varicose and spider veins are one of the most common side effects of venous insufficiency, and can be unsightly to many of our clients. At Windward Vein, we offer a variety of minimally invasive vein care treatments to help get rid of spider and varicose veins. Our treatments include compression hose, laser ablation therapy, ClariVein, VenaSeal, phlebectomy, and radiofrequency ablation. Many of our treatments take under one hour to complete and can be covered by your insurance.
Medical compression stockings are recommended first before any other method of treatment for varicose veins, as well as after the minimally invasive varicose vein treatments we offer at Windward Vein, Heart and Medispa. Compression stockings are specialized elastic support stockings available in various strengths that you wear on the affected leg or legs. For the best results, your physician will prescribe compression socks.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses radio frequency to heat the affected veins and cauterize them with this heat energy, closing the vein(s) off from blood flow. RFA is minimally invasive and only requires a local anesthetic that is placed around the vein.
ClariVein treatment is a minimally invasive treatment that places a small wire into the diseased vein, the wire rotates rapidly to distribute medication to the walls of the vein and closes it off from any blood flow. This treatment requires no laser heat or anesthetic.
Laser ablation is the insertion of a tiny catheter into the affected vein to administer laser heat therapy into the vein, causing the vein to shrink, close off and ultimately disappear. Laser ablation is a minimally invasive procedure done in the clinic with a local anesthetic.
VenaSeal is a relatively new treatment that involves no heat or sclerosing of the vein, but, in fact, is the insertion of a gel-like substance that eventually hardens and blocks off the vein from blood flow. VenaSeal is also minimally invasive and has no recovery time. No compression stockings are needed afterward.
Phlebectomy is a minor surgical procedure that requires a local anesthetic to remove the problem varicose veins through a tiny 2-3 mm incision using a vein hook.
Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy this is one of our minimally invasive procedures that requires the insertion of a small needle-like catheter into the vein that can apply a sclerosing (vein closing) medication to the walls of the vein. The vein walls will stick together and close the affected vein off from any more blood flow. The catheter is guided into the vein by ultrasound, avoiding invasive surgery.
Spider vein sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that sends an injection of a sclerosing solution into the branches of spider veins causing them to collapse and scar, eventually being reabsorbed back into the skin. Each treatment session is thirty minutes. Three to five treatments are required for a satisfactory result.

CoolSculpting Fat Freezing
If you’re looking for an option that can support your nutrition and exercise regimen, then look no further. CoolSculpting is a cosmetic fat reducing spa technology treatment that freezes stubborn fat storing areas on the body such as the abdomen, thighs, and love handles.
CoolSculpting freezes fat in the specific targeted areas, lowering the temperature of fat cells, that kills the cells at their core. In an initial consultation, we review the areas you want to be treated. With this near painless, one-hour treatment, per area, surgery is avoided. Fat loss occurs over the next eight weeks after treatment to see results. You should lose about 20% of the fat in the areas treated.
Unwanted marks on the skin such as acne scars, freckles, moles, birthmarks, pigmented skin lesions, frown lines, smoker’s lines, and any other facial wrinkles, can be treated alongside wrinkles on the hands, feet, neck and arms. PicoSure targets the affected area with short bursts of energy that shatter the ink and pigments into microscopic particles that your body easily removes.
Unsightly spots on the skin that come from years of sun damage and aging can be treated painlessly with PicoSure. The results of this treatment can be immediate and without surgery, there’s hardly any recovery time. If you’re looking for a nonsurgical method that can take care of what’s giving away your age, then try PicoSure. We’re sure you’ll love your new look.
Laser Hair Removal
Our genetics and age bring about unwanted hair growth in some sensitive areas. Women can experience the growth of facial hair under the chin, upper lip, and other areas. Many laser hair removal treatments can be a lengthy process that damage surrounding skin in the process, not to mention that they can be painful.
The LightSheer Duet treatment uses a large spot vacuum handpiece that sucks in the affected area, where it briefly stretches the skin and increases the surface area for treatment. The hair follicles and shaft area are damaged, and hair growth stops. Because this vacuum system stretches the skin, less damage to other skin layers apart from the hair follicle are spared. This laser hair removal method requires no topical anesthesia and is the most effective treatment on the market.
Ultherapy Ultrasound Treatment
When you hear the words facelift, painful surgery comes to mind. But why go through surgery when you can get down to the root of the problem without it? Our skin wrinkles from the loss of elasticity as we age; the reason for this loss of elasticity is that the layers of collagen fibers break down, causing the skin to lose firmness.
The way to fix this problem is through Ultherapy; Ultherapy is a treatment that delivers ultrasound about three to four millimeters beneath the skin, invigorating the cells to regenerate collagen. One treatment is all that it takes to see results that can last up to two years. You’ll look ten years younger after trying this FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment.
Medical Grade Facials Using Environ Products
Your skin was once radiant and glowing, but aging causes it to lose firmness, become dull and wrinkled. This facial infuses medical grade therapy and the full spa treatment. Traditional facials fall short because they don’t treat your skin with the essential vitamins and serums it needs to restore skin cells.
Our medical grade facials use Environ products to target the layers beneath the surface to soften lines, visibly hydrate the skin, and stimulate collagen growth. The essence of vitamins A, B, and C will reclaim your youth and restore that one-of-a-kind, youthful glow.
Microdermabrasion and other chemical peels can leave you feeling raw and your skin looking uneven. The SilkPeel facial is a revolutionary new facial treatment that removes the damaged topical layer of skin without causing painful peel aftershock.
The SilkPeel tool is designed to evenly treat the damaged layers of skin by using an exfoliation hydration method that takes care of acne prone, dull, and drying skin. No matter what type of skin you have, the SilkPeel clears out impurities, and leaves skin feeling smooth, even and beautiful.
Eyebrow Shaping and Eyelash Extensions
We provide facial services that will invigorate your skin, and take extra care to make sure you love the way you look and feel. Your eyebrows frame the look of your face, and they act as a focal point for the signaling of emotions.
Because the first things people see are your eyebrows, it’s best to maintain them. Our eyebrow shaping takes into account all the aspects of your face, making sure to align your brows with the careful lines of the nose and eyes. Let us help you achieve the ultimate brow shape. In addition, eyelash extensions can give your eyes the framing they deserve and help to show off those baby blues, gorgeous greens, and creamy dark eyes. Dress up your eyes and others won’t be able to look away.
Our facials target areas beneath the skin with essential vitamins to awaken the cells and regenerate collagen. In addition to maintaining a youthful glow, you’ll need the support of specific serums and creams.
Environ Skin Care
Our Environ skin care products supplement the newly exposed skin (after your facial) and prime it with the tools it needs to maintain firmness. Environ offers serums that protect your skin from UVA rays, invigorates skin with vitamins A, E, C, and tea extracts. Problem areas of skin that are prone to roughness and acne can be tamed with Environ.
TiZO Skin Care
Our skin is damaged every day over the course of our lives with exposure to the sun. Whether or not it’s sunny or overcast, UVA and UVB rays are always present.
