Laser Lipo and Vein Center offers procedures
Laser Lipo and Vein Center is a medical practice that incorporates advanced and innovative medical technology into a elegant, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Located in O’Fallon, MO, just minutes from St. Louis County and just past the new outlet malls in Chesterfield Valley, our Vein and Laser Lipo Clinic treats patients with vein disease whose symptoms are often underappreciated. Vein disease treatment starts with a comprehensive evaluation by ultrasound of the venous circulation in your lower extremities. Our vein and laser lipo clinic was the first full service vein center in the St. Louis area that accepts and is credentialed with all of the insurance carriers in the region.
Our new technology continues to benefit patients by the use of EVLT and RFA to treat veins. EVLT is a non-invasive laser treatment that has surpassed painful vein stripping as the treatment of choice for vein disease. We also reap the benefits of advances in laser medicine by offering comfortable, state-of-the-art laser hair removal, near-infrared skin tightening using a laser, minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures, and laser-assisted liposuction. We also perform innovative procedures like fat transfer to the face, breast, and buttock.

“If you have any doubt about the quality of care, the staff, or insurance issues let me put them to rest. The care I received from everyone was exceptional. I was the only patient each visit, well, I was treated like I was the only patient! Professional is an understatement. My procedure was explained so I knew exactly what was going to happen. They had no problem answering any and all my questions. They worked with my insurance to get me the treatment I needed. I have the highest regard for Dr . Wright and ALL his staff. I highly recommended Laser Lipo and Vein Center!” – John J
“What a VERY positive experience I had! From the first phone call to my last visit I was treated like a valued person..not just another patient. As I continued my visits I felt these very cordial people were more than a medical staff..they became friends. How refreshing this is during a time when we experience unfriendliness in so many businesses. The quality of care can not be beat & I was pleasantly shocked to discover my insurance would pay for my procedure! In most cases you have good & bad points to share but honestly I experienced only good. Please do yourself a HUGE favor & give Dr. Wright & his staff a try. Sure glad I did!” – Patsy R
