Dr. Jawdat Abboud, MD, and his team of seasoned vein-vanquishers target and tame unwanted leg adornments with an arsenal of spider-vein-treatment technologies. In a preliminary consultation, Dr. Abboud examines gams to make sure patients are good candidates for the therapy and to determine the best plan of attack. Using lasers, radio frequency, or intense-pulsed-light systems, the artery expert then exposes skin to quick bursts of energy that target the pigment in each visible vein and cause it to fade away like an under-the-bed monster during daytime hours. Skin graffiti gradually lightens over four to six weeks, and follow-up appointments might be required to fully erase unwanted marks. Like after a run-in with an affectionate aunt, most patients experience mild pain and bruising immediately following their sessions.
