Live Vein-Pain Free in 2018!


It’s time to treat yourself to beautiful legs in 2018- and we are here to help! Get rid of your spider veins and varicose veins once and for all and make 2018 your year of freedom from leg pain and fatigue! Your Reno Vein Specialist, Dr. Robert Merchant, specializes in four different types of treatment options to heal varicose and spider veins.

VenaSeal™ is the newest minimally invasive vein closure system in the industry. This treatment option can help treat venous reflux by directly closing the vein segment, while significantly minimizing discomfort. Recovery time is minimal and the risk of post-operative side effects is lower than other procedure options. We often get asked if closing a vein is bad for overall circulation, and the answer is no! The blood from the closed vein will redirect itself to one of many healthy veins! Read more here!

If you think VenaSeal™ might not be the answer for you, we also specialize in ClosureFast™, also known as Radiofrequency Closure. This is an FDA-approved procedure, which creates lasting results in only about 90 minutes! Downtime is minimal, with most patients taking just one day off work following surgery. ClosureFast™ causes less pain than stripping or laser ablation.

Additionally, we offer Ambulatory Micro Phlebectomy at RVC which can be performed in combination with Radiofrequency Closure or on its own. This is the surgical removal of large varicose veins through incisions so small there is typically little to no scarring! The surgery leads to an improved appearance of the treatment area, and less long-term pain!

Lastly, we offer Sclerotherapy to treat spider veins. This safe, non-operative treatment method involves using tiny needles to micro-inject the FDA-approved solution, Sotradecol®. The solution, once injected, causes spider veins to shrink and disappear. Typically, 2-4 treatments are needed to achieve maximum results, but there is absolutely no down time!

Say goodbye to your varicose or spider veins once-and-for-all in 2018. You deserve to live free of pain and embarrassment about your legs.
