Sclerotherapy NYC: Show Off Those Bare Summer Legs!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014 AT 4:05 PM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Are you ready to show off your summer legs but weary of the bulging veins lurking underneath your jeans? Over half of adult women in the US are stricken by spider and varicose veins on their calves and thighs. Although these veins are rarely a medical concern, they can cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your legs. Don’t let embarrassing leg veins cramp your summer style! If leg veins are stopping you from busting out your Bermudas or showing off those short-shorts this summer, NYC dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine has the answer for you!

Sclerotherapy in NYC is a minimally invasive procedure for vein removal. This technique injects a solution into the vein which irritates the lining and causes the vein to collapse. Eventually, the unwanted vein turns into scar tissue and fades from view. Depending on the severity of your leg veins, multiple vein treatments may be needed.  Although most people are candidates for vein removal, women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for sclerotherapy in NY. Patients experiencing certain medical conditions, like deep vein thrombosis, should also seek an alternative vein treatment. Dr. Levine can discuss the best options available to treat your individual case of spider and varicose veins.

 Sclerotherapy is an out-patient procedure lasting 15 to 30 minutes . After Sclerotherapy, you will be advised to wear tight fitting support hose, walk frequently, and avoid strenuous activity. Although fully treated veins will not reappear, sclerotherapy will not prevent future veins from emerging.  Dr. Levine works with each patient to track the appearance of veins and their treatment progress.
