Varicose veins are large, blue, raised, swollen, twisted blood vessels. They most commonly develop in the legs and feet, and are unattractive and often painful. Spider veins (technical name: telangiectasias) are small, dilated blood vessels on the skin or mucous membranes. These are smaller, damaged veins that are red, purple, or blue, and are visible through the skin. Spider veins most often develop on the legs and face. Dr. Ariel Ostad offers effective treatments for these conditions. 

Am I a candidate for vein removal?

You may be a candidate for a custom vein treatment if you find the appearance of spider veins or varicose veins troublesome. If you find that visible veins are diminishing your quality of life or confidence, advanced vein treatments provided by Dr. Ostad can leave your smoother and more clear. 

What can I expect with spider and varicose vein treatment in NYC?

Laser therapy

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


What is the recovery like after spider and varicose vein treatment in NYC?

There is little to no downtime with sclerotherapy or laser vein treatment. You can expect to resume normal activities immediately after sclerotherapy and by the following day when undergoing laser vein treatment. You may be advised to wear compression stockings for some time after the procedure.
