Dr. Z has been a member of the American College of Phlebology for over a decade. If you have visually bothersome veins and vascular anomalies anywhere on your body, you may be a candidate for laser, injection treatments or even removal or superficial, non-functional veins.
Testing for deep and superficial function with doppler and DPPG is done by Dr. Z when appropriate and then alternative treatments, pros and cons will be suggested. Because leg veins respond best to wearing heavier compression hose for 2 weeks after the procedure, many patients save these treatments-usually 2 to 4 visits and then annual maintenance, for the cooler months in Las Vegas. Lasers and IPL are often used for vessels above the waist.
These require several treatments for best results, but require no compression garments. Backs of hands, chest and leg veins respond best to injection of FDA approved chemicals which collapse the problem veins and allow them to be absorbed over time by your body. Cosmetic results can be very gratifying.
