Our vein clinic in LI has treated hundreds of patients, all of whom have been more than satisfied with the treatments.

When you schedule an appointment at our vein clinic, our vein doctor will examine your vein problems to look for signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency. We may also use vascular imaging to visualize the blood flow in your veins. Once we’ve narrowed down the root cause of your vein problems, our vein specialists curate the ideal minimally invasive varicose vein treatment for your specific needs. Please continue reading for a detailed description of the entire varicose vein treatment process.
Diagnosis of Vein Disease at Our Vein Clinic
Most vein problems, including spider veins and varicose veins, are caused by underlying venous insufficiency. Chronic venous insufficiency is a medical condition in which your vein valves collapse. These vein valves are usually responsible for healthy one-way blood flow towards the heart, preventing it from flowing backward due to gravity. When your vein valves collapse, blood flows backward due to gravity, accumulating in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in leg veins and the lack of effective blood circulation lead to various vein problems.
During your initial consultation, our board-certified vein doctor examines your legs to identify signs and symptoms of vein disease. They will look for spider veins and varicose veins, and ask you to describe any other symptoms. Some of the initial signs and symptoms of vein disease are restless legs syndrome, frequent leg cramps, throbbing leg veins, and leg swelling. Furthermore, the signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency worsen at the end of the day or after long periods of sitting or standing still.
If you have any of the signs or symptoms of venous insufficiency, our vein specialists will also administer a vascular imaging test called Duplex Ultrasound. The vascular imaging test will allow our vein doctor to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins, thus identifying the problematic saphenous vein responsible for the vein problems. After the diagnosis, our board-certified vein doctor will curate the ideal minimally invasive varicose vein treatment plan.
Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Treatments at Our Vein Clinic
Vein Treatment Clinic, Long Island, only provides minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. All of our varicose vein treatments are in-office and outpatient procedures, i.e., they’re performed in our vein doctor’s office with no hospitalization or downtime. Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are also painless, comfortable, and have a negligible risk of side effects. Most people can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
The following is an overview of the minimally invasive varicose vein treatments at our vein clinic in Long Island:
- Radiofrequency Ablation: Our vein doctor channels thermal energy through a catheter to collapse the diseased saphenous vein.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation: Our vein doctor channels laser energy through a laser fiber to destroy the problematic saphenous vein.
- VenaSeal: Our vein doctor injects a medical adhesive into the diseased saphenous vein to seal its vein walls, shutting it down.
All of these minimally invasive varicose vein treatments have the same overarching goal — collapse or remove the diseased saphenous vein. The vein doctor accomplishes this using thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives, depending on the procedure. Once the diseased saphenous vein is removed, the accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.
However, the aforementioned minimally invasive varicose vein treatments only address the underlying vein disease — they don’t remove the visible spider veins from your skin. After the primary varicose vein treatment, our vein doctor may recommend sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins.
The following is an overview of our minimally invasive cosmetic treatments to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins:
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy: During this procedure, our vein doctor removes the superficial varicose veins through incisions on the skin’s surface.
- Sclerotherapy: During this procedure, our vein doctor injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins, hardening them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin.
Ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that remove the visible spider veins and superficial varicose veins. However, since they don’t address the underlying vein disease, making them “non-essential”, they aren’t eligible for medical insurance.
