Vein Treatments

Treatments Offered

For varicose and spider veins, the best outcomes result from comprehensive treatment that combines several methods, including today’s most advanced and effective techniques. In addition these treatments are minimally invasive, performed as outpatient procedures, require no general anesthesia, minimize discomfort, reduce risk and provide immediate and excellent outcomes with no downtime.

  • Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) – The definitive treatment for varicose veins. A tiny laser alters the walls of the diseased vein, which collapses, solving the core problem. Patients go home 15 minutes after the procedure, take a 30-minute walk that evening and return to normal activities the next day.
  • Microsurgical Ambulatory Phlebectomy – Dr Shalev makes a tiny incision and removes visible “bulging, rope-like” veins microsugically. It requires only local anesthesia and is frequently performed with EVLT.
  • Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy – Used for the internal veins that can’t be seen but that cause varicose veins to bulge. Dr. Shalev uses ultrasound to locate the diseased vein and to precisely inject medication that damages the vein, causing it to collapse.
  • Cosmetic sclerotherapy – A cosmetic treatment for small spider veins of the lower extremities. Dr. Shalev injects sclerosing medication directly into the veins to close them. While not covered by insurance or Medicare on its own, one free sclerotherapy procedure is included in patients who are treated with Endovenous laser (EVLT) or with microphlebectomies as part of our comprehensive varicose veins treatment.
  • Veinwave Thermocoagulation The latest development in facial vein treatment. It is highly effective and is less painful and less risky than laser or sclerotherapy treatments. Veinwave was developed in England and has been used widely mostly in Europe . Only recently it was introduced to the USA and we, at Horizon Aesthetics, Vein and Laser center were one of the first centers which incorporated it in the treatment of facial veins and spider veins in the legs, with excellent results.
