Veins and vessels

Veins and Vessels

Broken veins and vessels are common and typically appear on the cheeks, nose, chin, and over time on the neck, chest and legs. Small and medium-size blue or red (spider) veins, broken capillaries, blood vessels and diffused redness are typically treated with our Excel V laser.         Larger veins are treated by Dr. Rosenthal using sclerotherapy and for cosmetic purposes only. If veins are too small for adequate treatment with sclerotherapy, laser therapy may be recommended. There is no cure for spider veins, which may be a result of genetic factors, but laser therapy can reduce their unsightly appearance.

If you are in good health with no problems associated with your circulatory system, you may benefit from laser or sclerotherapy treatments for veins. An examination by Dr. Rosenthal, of the veins, may be required to determine the type of therapy that we recommend.
