Don't Settle For Subpar Results

If you've been underwhelmed by the results you've obtained from a different provider, it's time to explore your options with Vein & Aesthetics.

One of the key advantages of doing so is the efficiency of our treatments. On average, our patients experience significant improvement after just one treatment session. We understand the importance of minimal downtime in your daily life, and our procedures are designed to allow you to return to your regular activities quickly.

Here are other reasons why you should explore your options with us:

  • We pride ourselves on having a team of experienced medical professionals dedicated to vascular health. Our board-certified cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Fariba Gharai, leads our practice. Her expertise extends to the latest advancements in vein treatments, ensuring our patients receive the most up-to-date and effective care.
  • No two patients are the same, and neither are their vein issues. If you've tried treatments elsewhere without success, we'll conduct a comprehensive evaluation to understand your condition. This assessment allows us to develop a personalized treatment plan to address your vein problems' root cause.
  • Sclerotherapy is one of the cornerstones of our vein treatment options. It's a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a specialized solution into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade from view. This technique has been refined over decades, making it a highly effective and widely accepted method for treating spider and varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy Vs. Phlebectomy

When addressing varicose and spider veins, two commonly considered methods are sclerotherapy and phlebectomy. The choice depends on various factors, including the size and location of your problematic veins, medical history, and treatment goals.

Sclerotherapy: Minimally Invasive

For decades, this minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure has been the go-to choice for addressing spider and smaller varicose veins. Here's how it works:

  • Injection of a Special Solution: A specialized solution is injected directly into the problematic vein using a fine needle.
  • Vein Closure: The solution irritates the vein's lining, causing it to collapse and seal shut. This process stops blood flow through the treated vein.
  • Natural Elimination: Over time, the body naturally absorbs the closed vein, and it disappears from view, leaving behind smoother skin.

Sclerotherapy doesn't require incisions or general anesthesia, resulting in minimal discomfort and a swift recovery. It is particularly effective for spider veins and smaller varicose veins. Because sclerotherapy typically takes less than an hour, it’s convenient for those with busy schedules.

Phlebectomy: Surgical Precision

On the other hand, phlebectomy is a surgical procedure designed to remove larger varicose veins through tiny incisions in the skin. Here's how phlebectomy differs from sclerotherapy:

  • Incisions: Multiple small incisions are made along the path of the varicose vein.
  • Vein Removal: The surgeon uses special tools to remove the affected vein segment by segment through these incisions.
  • Stitches: After vein removal, stitches or adhesive strips are used to close the incisions.

The procedure allows for the immediate removal of problematic veins. Since the veins are physically removed, the results are often long-lasting.
