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 treatments can reduce visible veins in the legs
By Dr. Roger Koreen
Many Americans are living with spider or varicose veins. For those over the age of 50, that number goes up to 50 percent. Unsightly spider and varicose veins can be a real embarrassment, but the good news is that sclerotherapy can dramatically improve the appearance of these veins.
What causes unsightly veins?
Your heart sends nutrient filled blood to the rest of the body through the arteries and the veins carry the blood back to the heart. When blood travels to the legs, the muscles move the blood back to the heart and valves in the veins prevent backflow.
In some people, these valves become weakened and allow blood to pool. When this occurs, you can develop varicose and spider veins.
Varicose veins – Large blue or purple veins that may appear to bulge.
Spider veins – Smaller red web-like veins.
If you have family members with vein problems, it can increase your risk for developing them. Other risk factors include hormonal changes, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle.
How do you treat vein conditions?
Spider veins are largely a cosmetic concern, very rarely causing serious problems, although they can burn or itch Varicose veins can cause more complications, leading to throbbing and cramping, restless legs, or even skin ulcers and sores.
Whether you want relief from symptoms or to eliminate the aesthetic concerns associated with vein conditions, sclerotherapy can help. This well-established treatment provides results in as little as several weeks.
During the treatment, a sclerosing medication is injected into the desired veins. The medication works by causing the treated vein to collapse and allowing the blood flow to be redirected through a healthy vein. Treatments take only a few minutes and cause very little discomfort.
