Sclerotherapy Cosmetic Vein Treatment in Queens
Skin quality is an important part of appearance. Beyond the shape of the features, and the color of the skin and eyes, the tone of the skin, optimally smooth and clear, helps to define a face that is pleasant and appealing. Similarly, skin imperfections of the legs can mar the beauty of otherwise attractive limbs. For many men and women, vascular imperfections such as varicose and spider veins are an unwanted intrusion on the clarity of their skin. Fortunately, Dr. Cohen is highly skilled in modern cosmetic vein treatment, treatment designed to restore the natural purity of the skin. Treatments are performed at Dr. Cohen’s Forest Hills office for patients from Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Rego Park, Little Neck, Great Neck, and throughout the greater New York City area.
Types of Vein Problems and How They Are Treated by Sclerotherapy
Dr. Cohen is experienced in treating varicose veins, spider veins, and unsightly vascular lesions.
During sclerotherapy, a solution is injected directly into the vein. The solution eradicates blood vessels, and, over time, the targeted veins break down and are reabsorbed by the body, leaving the skin free of the troublesome appearance of veins. Treating the veins with sclerotherapy while they’re still small also reduces the chance that they will cause health problems in the future.
Causes of Vein Problems
Cosmetic vein problems occur for a number of reasons. Some people are genetically predisposed to varicose and more visible superficial spider veins. Others develop cutaneous vascular lesions as a result of aging, pregnancy, or standing for extended periods of time. Whatever the cause of your cosmetic vein problems, fortunately they can be treated safely and effectively by Dr. Cohen.
Do cosmetic vein treatments have any side effects?
Though most patients are not troubled by any side effects of treatment, some may experience slight swelling, bruising, blisters and/or redness of the skin for 24 hours afterwards. For some patients, bruising may last for weeks as the treated veins are cleared up by the body.
The Positive Results of Cosmetic Vein Treatment
Because the sclerotherapy begins a process that the body completes, it takes some time for improvement to be visible. Depending on the size of the affected veins, it usually takes from four to six weeks for the veins to disappear from view. Depending on the extent of treatment, at least two treatments, and often more, are necessary. The majority of patients treated with sclerotherapy, regardless of their skin tone, are delighted with the results.
