Men are less likely to seek treatment for spider veins for cosmetic reasons, however, because the discoloration caused by spider veins is often covered by leg hair. Women are, however, left to deal with the pain that spider and varicose veins can cause both physically and to the spirit. These conditions are painful and limiting, but with laser light and other methods they can be safely treated. Dr. Raymond Wolf takes a complete approach to treating patients with these conditions.
In regards to advancements in laser vein therapy Dr. Wolf explained, "Dr. Wolfs Rejuvenation Center offer complete phlebology approaches to manage deep vein thrombosis and also venous disease of the superficial venous system. The differences are that we perform the ultrasound here in our office and it's different than a hospital ultrasound where the focus is deep vein thrombosis and not the management of the superficial venous system."
In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Dr. Wolf explained the treaments utilized at his practice.
Spider veins, also known as roadmap veins, are very tiny superficial blood vessels that increase in size over time and commonly occur on the legs. Sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard in treating people with spider veins.
Varicose veins are larger, dilated blood vessels that can be raised above the skin’s surface and have a rope-like appearance. Laser therapy is a highly effective treatment for varicose veins, in which tiny laser fibers are applied to the vein through a needle puncture.
It is a common misnomer that this type of treatment requires intensive therapy or is very expensive. A spokesman from the practice explained, "Most varicose veins and spider veins will not require surgery and can be treated at an affordable fee. Some conditions that are medical related will usually covered by insurance."
Due to the efficacy of these treatments and expert care, the practice has recieved numerous video testimonials from their vein therapy patients.
