Varicose veins can be exceptionally troubling for patients. Dr. Roger Koreen of Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center of Huntington, NY offer two types of treatment for varicose veins:
- Vascular laser therapy
Sclerotherapy has been available for decades. This treatment requires a sclerosing solution to be injected into the vein. This solution will close the vein and allow blood to redirect to stronger, healthier veins in the leg. Sclerotherapy is mildly uncomfortable though it is one of the most effective treatment options. It gets right to the source of the problem and provides a permanent solution.
Vascular laser therapy
The second option for varicose vein removal – as well as the removal of small spider veins – is vascular laser therapy. Vascular laser therapy uses laser light to penetrate the veins and reduce their appearance. Patients find that vascular laser therapy is more comfortable than sclerotherapy.
Which treatment is right for me?
Patients often have different desires when it comes to how they want to treat their varicose veins. Dr. Roger Koreen takes the time during his consultation to educate patients on each of the treatments and help them make a knowledgeable decision in regards to which is most appropriate for their situation.
