Many people think of varicose veins as a cosmetic concern. But the truth is the condition can also lead to pain, swelling – even venous leg ulcers. And if left untreated, vein disease can worsen over time. That’s why it’s important to seek treatment now at Vein Clinics of America (VCA) in Charlotte.
Christie Harp, MD at our VCA office in Charlotte, uses non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments like Endovenous Laser Treatment (ELT) and Sclerotherapy. Both are safe and effective options for removing varicose veins – large and small – in the legs, hands and face.
ELT utilizes the power of laser technology to seal off your varicose veins from your healthy vein network. Sclerotherapy is an injection procedure that treats varicose veins by injecting an FDA-approved medication into them. Just like ELT, Sclerotherapy “shuts down” abnormal veins from the rest of the vein network. In both procedures, blood flow is automatically redirected to other healthy veins and varicose veins are soon absorbed by the body.
Both treatments are performed at our Charlotte clinics without hospitalization or anesthesia. Each treatment takes about an hour and there’s no scarring and virtually no down time. In fact, most patients are back on their feet the same day.
Call and schedule your comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Christie Harp today. He’ll take the time to address your questions and provide a complete treatment plan to meet your individual needs. VCA of Charlotte is just a short drive from Huntersville and Belmont.
They seemed honest and tried to fit me in before the end of the year!

My surgeon and her staff were excellent! I hope I will have positive results from these procedures! But I would definitely recommend this office. Everyone is very kind. Waiting time was short, questions were always answered in details, everyone was kind and understanding, and I felt like they genuinely cared about me, which is a rare thing these days!
