Laser Vein Center is a medical practice combining advanced, innovative medical technology into a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. We treat all vein problems from small cosmetic spider veins to advanced vein disease and skin ulcers.

Varicose veins are a real medical issue that, left untreated, can lead to larger problems. Veins are more than a cosmetic issue. Your visit to our office begins with diagnostics, evaluating the health of your veins. Dr. Wright sees all patients from diagnostics through treatment and into follow-up, and each treatment plan is individualized to the needs of the patient's veins.

We treat with state-of-the-art methods, emphasizing minimal downtime and maximum healing. Dr. Wright regularly participates in ongoing education and training to stay advanced in care. Dr. Wright also conducts research in the field of vein disease and treatment, publishing numerous papers and studies on improvement of efficacy of method and care.

We treat patients like honored guests, with comfortable, personalized care. We seek to educate patients and their families on veins and vein disease to help them understand the importance of venous health.

Our practice is the only practice in the area that accepts and is credentialed with all of the insurance carriers in the region, which often makes us the most affordable provider of these services. Since we are an independent office, we carry no extra facility fees or hospital costs, which helps your treatment expense greatly.

Services Offered


With advances in ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments, we can get rid of your varicose veins comfortably and effectively with little downtime. If left untreated, vein disease can lead to significant medical complications. Because of this, most insurance companies cover treatment of symptomatic vein problems. Now varicose veins can be treated from inside the vein, a procedure called vein ablation, without the trauma associated with old-school vein stripping. The procedure is done in our medical office under local anesthesia with no scarring. Patients return to their regular activities within one to two days. Symptoms such as swelling, tenderness, restlessness, heaviness and fatigue in the legs are often caused by vein disease; treating the damaged veins relieves these uncomfortable symptoms and restores proper circulation.

We also treat spider veins, the cosmetic, superficial veins that make legs and other areas unsightly. Using sclerotherapy and a course of treatment determined by the doctor, we eradicate these annoying marks and restore beautiful legs.

Spider veins may also appear on the face or hands; and as red veins on the nose. We easily treat these and the bluish veins that may cause eyes to look darkened or injured.


is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in adults from 18 to 65 years of age. Dr/ Wright is an experiences injector of Botox and Dysport for wrinkle relief.


Restylane is a clear hyaluronic gel. The result is instantaneous natural enhancement of the skin. Restylane is used for smoothing out wrinkles; plumping sunken areas; adding voilume to lift sagging facial structure; enhancing lips and getting rid of frown and worry lines on the face.We also have Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse for injection of lines and sagging areas.


Endovenous Laser Treatment and Radiofrequency Ablation are treatment alternatives to surgical stripping of the greater saphenous vein. That surgery and its involved nature are now outdated. Instead, with endovenous ablation, small fiber is inserted into a pre-numbed area, and introduced itno the damaged vein. Pulses of energy are delivered inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and seal shut. The procedure is done in-office under local anesthesia and is comfortable. Following the procedure a bandage or compression stocking is placed on the treated leg to facilitate rapid closure of the treated vein.

Dr. Wright performs an ablation of the largest vein causing of the vein problems before proceeding to treat the smaller refluxing (dilated and leaking) veins downstream. Treating vein disease in this stepped approach allows for more effective and durable results.


VeinWave is treatment for unsightly tiny spider and thread veins that appear on the face and body. We can treat the small veins on the face and body that cannot be treated with sclerotherapy, quickly and without pain. Dr Wright is proud to be a well-versed expert in facial vein removal. Veinwave works using radio waves that are pulsed directly to the desired area, so treatment is quick and pain-free. The device was developed by a vascular surgeon as a way to treat very tiny veins on the surface of the skin that cannot be treated with sclerotherapy. The other options for treating these tiny veins, laser and light treatments, risk burning and scarring the area around the vessel, which does not occur with the Veinwave.

Veinwave can also be used to treat veins in difficult-to-treat locations, including the face, ankles, and knees. The treatment takes less than 15 minutes to perform and involves no downtime. Any adult man or woman in good general health who has thin spider veins, or tangled, thread-like veins known as “telangiectasia,” is a good candidate. Also anyone who is looking for a fast procedure and wants to avoid the possibility of bruising or scarring should consider VeinWave treatment.
