Varicose and spider veins can be unsightly and uncomfortable for many of the patients we see here at The Vein Doctor. Dr. Greenberg sits down with every patient to better understand their vein concerns, and afterward presents the best possible vein treatment plans that can help you get back to the life you want to live. One of the many effective treatments we offer our patients is sclerotherapy – this procedure reduces the appearance of and often completely eliminates smaller varicose and spider veins from the surface of the skin. Our patients find this surface treatment one of the most comfortable vein treatments out there, because it’s minimally invasive and accomplishes the goal of restoring your beautiful and youthful legs.
What are varicose and spider veins and how do they form?
Before we walk you through the sclerotherapy procedure, we should explain the types of veins we can treat. As you may know, varicose veins are larger vein clusters that protrude from the surface of the skin, most commonly found within the lower half of the body. Areas such as the backs of the legs will often exhibit varicose veins, which are greenish blue in color and appear knotted. While varicose veins are unpleasant in appearance, the condition may reveal something deeper occurring within the venous system, something Dr. Greenberg can offer further insight into be sure.
Dr. Greenberg is known as the Original Vein Doctor because of his attention to detail – from a functional diagnosis of deeper issues that are showing themselves aesthetically, down to diagnosing future vein conditions and working with you to prevent them. Contrary to what you may believe, varicose veins are not simply a problem for older men and women, but can affect those in their 30s. The earlier you understand how your veins work and why you see these surface vein conditions, the sooner you can address them and move forward with your life, confident in your vein health.
