The Kelowna Vein Clinic & Aesthetic Solutions was the first clinic in the Okanagan to offer comprehensive varicose and spider vein removal, along with other cosmetic laser therapy options. We have trained physicians in the practice of varicose and spider vein removal, as well as in the delivery of laser treatments and other cosmetic laser surgery treatments in Kelowna and beyond our province as well.
Centre Director Dr. Craig Crippen has devoted himself to the study and treatment of venous disease. The gold standard for treating varicose veins and for spider vein removal is injection therapy or Sclerotherapy. Early in his career, at the request of his patients, he began exploring the possibility of introducing cosmetic laser surgery to his existing practice. With his artistic eye, as well as his knowledge of laser corrective surgery and his knowledge of anatomy, it was a natural step to include EVLT (EndoVenous Laser Therapy) to his treatment modalities.
Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) is an exciting alternative to surgical vein removal. Dr. Crippen and the professional staff at the Kelowna Vein Clinic & Aesthetic Solutions stand at the forefront of medical technology, and maintain a world-renowned reputation by disseminating these ground breaking techniques.
Our clinic is a Non-Hospital Medical Surgical Facility (NHSF) according to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia. The is an important distinction to make between other clinics, we have taken the time and significant cost to make sure our clinic is of the highest standard of care. In this setting, we are able to perform EVLT, Botox, Juvederm Filler and many other procedures under the most stringent care guidelines.
We are a multidisciplinary and integrative centre with highly skilled professionals dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the fields of vascular medicine and cosmetic laser treatments. The physicians and professional staff at Kelowna Vein Clinic & Aesthetic Solutions appreciate your desire for a healthier, more youthful appearance. In fact, services such as varicose and spider vein removal represent only a fraction of the treatment options available. By offering a wide range of skin health and enhancement in the Kelowna region, our clinic is committed to your continued vitality, longevity, and happiness.
Our Centre is a state of the art facility that is committed to the development and implementation of the latest surgical techniques and cosmetic treatments. And, while several traditional spider/varicose vein or mole removal techniques are possible, our focus continues to be on providing leading edge treatments, such as laser therapy, which do not require general anaesthesia and have a quick recovery and are very safe.
