During 20- to 60-minute sessions, depending on the number of treatments, board-certified doctors use tiny needles, just thicker than hair, to numb the skin with a local anesthetic then inject spider veins with a chemical solution. This sclerosant seals purple and blue vessels closed, causing them to wither away and be absorbed by the body. Patients may resume normal activities, such as walking or Rockette rehearsal, within one or two days of the procedure.
Vein Experts, LLC
Dr. Agrawal, Dr. Dymek, and Dr. Banker, the trio of vascular and interventional radiologists at Vein Experts, LLC, keep troublesome vessels in check with a menu of outpatient treatments. They tame mild cases of spider veins with medical-grade compression stockings, lasers, and sclerotherapy. More serious varicose veins that rise above the skin crumble like mined mountaintops after the VNUS Closure catheter blasts them with radio-frequency energy.
