Office consultations allow you to meet with our doctors, so that they can answer your questions and evaluate your situation.


Management of Venous Reflux Disease (Varicose and Spider Veins) can be accomplished by minimally-invasive procedures, for which we accept most types of insurance. These methods can successfully treat symptoms, such as aching, throbbing, fatigue, pain, and swelling in the legs.


Varicose Veins occur when malfunctioning valves cannot properly circulate blood, allowing it to pool in the veins. Known as venous reflux, this causes veins to bulge, throb, or ache, and can lead to swelling, cramping, or itching in the legs. Left untreated, this condition can result in serious complications. Call us for a consultation to determine which of our many effective treatments is right for you.


Spider Veins are smaller than varicose veins, appearing as red or purple threads, close to the skin’s surface. Affecting morewomen than men, they can be brought on by many factors, including heredity, pregnancy, or hormonal fluctuations, and can also lead to aches and other minor discomforts.

Varicose Vein “Laser” Surgery: VNUS Closure –Treating varicose veins once required painful surgery in a hospital; but now, we can correct them with a simple procedure, right in our office. Much safer than EVLT, the procedure uses laser-like radiofrequency catheters to seal the damaged veins, re-directing blood through healthy ones. It takes only about an hour, provides immediate relief, requires little downtime, and is covered by most insurance carriers.


Microphlebectomy is a great alternative for medium-sized veins. Through tiny punctures in the skin, the small vessels are removed permanently.


Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Treatment is a procedure in which we administer a series of micro-injections into spider veins, to seal them from the inside, re-routing blood into healthy veins. Besides spider veins, this treatment can be used for varicose veins that are close to the surface of the skin.


Facial Veins can appear on the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, eyelids, or neck. Caused by dilated blood vessels, their red and purple hues make them difficult to conceal. We offer effective, noninvasive treatments that will rid you of your bothersome facial veins.


Facial Vein Treatment – Facial veins can be successfully treated with our advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy. This non-invasive procedure targets the veins beneath the surface, without affecting the outer layer of skin. Also effective for age spots, sun damage, rosacea, and birthmarks, this technique is painless, and requires no downtime.

You don’t have to hide your hands anymore.Let us turn back the hands of time by reducing the appearance of protruding veins. We now offer an innovative in-office procedure to eliminate unwanted hand veins. Many people develop large bulging veins on the backs of their hands as they get older. Generally, this is due to their skin relaxing and thinning with age. This causes the veins to become more noticeable and appear enlarged. Traditional treatments offered are sclerotherapy and miniphlebectomy.

  Other treatments:  
  • Retin-A and Glycolic Acid Derivatives - Topical applications can repair sundamaged skin and cause age spots to fade. Moreover, they stimulate the production of collagen.

  • Microdermabrasion - Microdermabrasion is a superficial skin-polishing that improves the appearance of aging skin. The results are immediate. Maintenance treatments are required.

  • Chemical Peel - Depending on your skin type and the desired results, your physician may recommend a superficial, medium or deep chemical peel. Your surgeon will select the proper chemical or mix of chemicals (glycolic acid, Jessner, TCA or trichloroacetic acid or carbolic acid) and apply the solution to various areas of skin.

  • IPL Treatment - This treatment is very useful for clearing away sun damage, such as age spots, sun spots, liver spots, etc. Unsightly veins and dark age spots are gently removed through short bursts of laser light.

  • Dermal Fillers Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Sculptra Aesthetic - You may opt for the instant results of Radiesse, or choose the collagen stimulator Sculptra, which, over time, promotes your own collagen


as the “filler.” While all of the hyaluronbased injectable fillers (e.g., Restylane, Juvéderm) are extremely well tolerated, their effects are too short-term on hands. Radiesse, and Sculptra Aesthetic, on the other hand, wear well in the hands, and provide a cushion replacement, maintaining a soft, natural feel. Results typically last 1 - 3 years. Touch-up treatments may be necessary to maintain desired correction.
