Below you will find the questions we hear most often from our patients

Can all types of veins be injected?

Almost always. However, sometimes other procedures may be required, and the doctor will inform you if this is necessary in your particular case.

What is the solution injected? Is it safe?

Definitely not. We want you to continue your normal activities. The only restriction is to avoid heavy exercise and swimming on the day of the treatment. Most activities may be resumed the following day.

How will my blood circulate if I eliminate my varicose veins?

Varicose veins are a burden on your circulation. Because the blood inside them is refluxing (going backwards), correcting the flow can only improve your circulation. In treating varicose veins, we eliminate only the bad veins and safeguard the healthy veins for normal circulation.

Is it okay to postpone treatment?

As you probably know, postponing any type of treatment can have its drawbacks. Varicose vein disease is a progressive disease that, if left untreated, will only get worse. When making a decision about your varicose veins, keep in mind that the sooner you get your veins treated, the easier they are to treat and control.

Is compression hosiery helpful?

Not too many patients like to wear medical compression hosiery, but sometimes pressure dressings are all that is necessary for the treatment of varicose veins. While wearing these garments, some patients often report a decrease in their symptoms. However, for many people it is not practical or convenient to wear them on a regular basis, especially in South Florida.

Are there any pills or creams to treat veins?

There are some oral medications and ointments that have been used to treat varicose and spider veins. These venotonic agents include horse chestnut extract, venostat, diosmin, hidrosmina, venosmil, rutosides, flavonoids, and assorted vitamins and minerals. However, they have not been helpful, and there is very little scientific evidence to support their effectiveness.

Are laser treatments effective for superficial spider veins?

This treatment has not proven to be very effective on spider veins on the leg. It is not pain-free and sometimes leads to scarring. It is also more expensive. Therefore, we do not recommend it.
