Most veins can be treated by
a procedure which offers a non-surgical means of symptomatic and cosmetic relief. Before the advent of sclerotherapy, varicose veins were treated surgically with many small incisions. Now, only a small percentage of patients
will still need surgery to treat vein problems.
With sclerotherapy, minor surgical intervention and Photoderm, Dr. Medina is able to eliminate painful and unsightly veins and improve leg appearance. It is helpful for this discussion to define the terms of varicose and spider veins.
Varicose veins are usually greenish blue in color, larger, and will often be raised (protuberant) above the skin. They are most commonly caused by faulty valves that allow blood to flow in a reverse direction. Spider veins are generally reddish/purplish/blue, and appear on the skin surface.
The Triangle Vein Clinic is dedicated to the expert diagnosis and treatment of these and other venous disorders.
