POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 2016 AT 1:35 PM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Looking to achieve youthful skin this new year? One commonly-requested treatment among patients is the reduction of troublesome varicose and spider veins. These bulging veins affect a large number of both men and women. Many factors, including age, sun exposure, and hormonal fluxes, may result in the appearance of large, twisting vein patterns underneath the skin. In addition to being unsightly, varicose and spider veins can also affect self-confidence, causing patients to cover up their arms and legs instead of flaunting their complexion. Hiding beneath layers of clothes comes with ease during the cold winter months, however, as many patients find their wardrobes limited. Numerous vein treatments are available to produce long-lasting results in time for spring! Undergoing vein treatment during the winter can lead to smoother-looking skin by the time the weather gets warmer. If you’re suffering from unsightly, bulging veins, New York dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers various solutions, including laser vein treatment and sclerotherapy, to eliminate both spider veins and varicose veins for radiant skin!

What Causes Varicose Veins & Spider Veins?

Varicose and spider veins may be caused by a number of factors. Aging and genetics are prominent causes for many patients, while obesity, over-exposure to the sun, and a sedentary lifestyle also contribute to bulging veins. Additionally, hormonal shifts during pregnancy or menopause may play a part in the formation of vein patterns. Our vein treatments are designed to reverse the effects of these troublesome factors and improve the appearance of skin.

Where Do Spider & Varicose Veins Form?

The most common treatment areas for spider and varicose veins are the upper and lower legs. These vein clusters can also form around the face, hands, and arms, depending on the patient. Laser vein treatment and sclerotherapy are designed reduce bulging veins around all of these areas.

Eliminate Unsightly Veins With Laser Treatments!

Laser vein treatment incorporates advanced laser technology to break apart varicose veins and spider veins. During your procedure, laser energy is directed through the skin and delivered to the vein(s) underneath. Heat from the laser results in the gradual closing and disappearance of veins, as the body absorbs the targeted veins over time. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately following their laser vein treatment.

Sclerotherapy To Dissolve Veins!

Sclerotherapy uses a specialized solution to collapse bulging veins. The sclerosing agent is carefully injected into the targeted vein(s) in as little as 15 minutes. This solution causes the vein(s) to close up. Over time, the targeted veins begin to disappear, as they are absorbed by the body. Patients are given compression tape and support stockings for healing and may begin to see results within a few weeks of undergoing sclerotherapy treatment.
