My wife and I went into Dr. Roger Koreen's office to get our skin checked and a few problem areas treated. We did not have any skin doctor and others we tried had appointments that were over 6 months away. We were pleased to get an appointment not too far in advance. When we got there the office was pleasant and the people nice. Dr Koreen was very friendly and took his time in caring for us. Later, I came back for further treatment and again it was a pleasant experience. I thanked him for his knowledge and ability to help me out. Thanks Dr. Koreen!Marianne WMore reviews
Unfortunately, I have had many experiences with doctors. My father had recommended me to Dr. Koreen about 15 years ago. First you will be greeted by very friendly and warm receptionists. The waiting room is extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, magazines and TV’s. The wait time is always reasonable (10-15mins) considering Dr. Koreen always spends quality time for exam and questions (never rushed). He always educates you on the most modern treatments and offering the best options. Dr. Koreen now treats my teenage kids after many years of superior treatment and second to none care. I strongly trust and highly recommend Dr. Koreen and his staff.Thomas MMore reviews

Sclerotherapy is a safe method of spider vein removal in Huntington, NY
By Dr. Roger Koreen
Do you feel the pressure to have flawless looking legs? Like thousands of other women, spider veins can cause stress every time you try to put on a pair of shorts or bathing suit. While typically not a health risk, spider veins can be an embarrassing condition. Sclerotherapy from the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY is a safe and effective solution.
What are spider veins?
The medical term for spider veins is telangiectasia. These tiny blue, red, or purple vessels are visible right below the surface of the skin.
Spider veins can be caused by many factors including genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, smoking, sun exposure, or a sedentary lifestyle. People who have occupations that require prolonged periods of sitting or standing may be more susceptible to spider veins.
How do we treat spider veins?
Advancements in dermatology have allowed us to offer minimally invasive treatment options that are extremely effective at minimizing spider veins. Sclerotherapy has been around for several decades and has been successful for thousands of patients. The procedure is relatively painless, requires no down time, and can produce visible results after just a few treatments.
How does sclerotherapy work?
During sclerotherapy treatment, a sclerosing agent is injected into the spider veins. The medication causes these veins to collapse and then blood flow will resume through nearby healthy veins. The treatment takes just a few minutes and patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately after.
Results from sclerotherapy can be seen within just a few weeks, most patients will need two to four treatments for optimal results.
