What can I expect with spider and varicose vein treatment in NYC?
One treatment Dr. Ostad uses for vein improvement is the Cutera Excel V laser. This is a device with a built-in cooling mechanism to maintain a comfortable surface skin temperature during laser vein treatment. Generally well-tolerated, this treatment uses pulses of laser energy, which many patients experience as a stinging sensation. The focused laser beam targets the vein, which absorbs the laser energy. The vein is destroyed and absorbed by the body over time.
Sclerotherapy is a tried and true technique for spider vein removal. For precision in this minimally-invasive procedure, Dr. Ostad uses an advanced, ultrasound-guided technique.
- Using a very fine needle, the doctor injects a solution into the affected vein
- The solution irritates the walls of the vein, causing it to collapse
- The blood is automatically rerouted through healthy veins
- Over time, the body absorbs the destroyed vein
