About Us

Who Are We?

Welcome to the STL Vein & Cosmetics! Fear no more. Your parent’s vein care of the past is no more. Varicose vein treatments has evolved tremendously since the time of our parents and grandparents. Spider and varicose veins have for the longest time been seen as an “cosmetic” issue. We now know that they are symptoms of a much bigger problem, “Vein disease”, a very real medical condition.

Do you ever wonder why your legs don’t look good or feel good? Do you suffer from Restless leg syndrome? Do you wake up at night with leg cramps and charley horses? Do you have leg sores that just will not heal? Do you ever find that your legs swell, aching, throbbing, and or hurt at the end of the day? Many mistakenly blame these issues on their age or just being on their feet all day. What they do not realize is that their body is sending a message that something is wrong. These symptoms are not normal. Fortunately, solutions are available.  Find a solution for your vein issues at our South County location. Call to schedule a consult today to learn more about how our staff can make your legs look and feel younger again.
