Minimally Invasive Treatments: The Gold Standard
We understand that dealing with vein issues can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful. That’s why we focus on offering minimally invasive treatments that are highly effective and cause minimal disruption to your daily life. Our primary treatments include:
- Sclerotherapy: This procedure involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and eventually fade away. Sclerotherapy is ideal for treating spider veins and smaller varicose veins.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA): EVLA is a state-of-the-art technique that uses laser energy to seal off problem veins. It’s highly effective for larger varicose veins and offers a quicker recovery compared to traditional vein surgery.
- Radiofrequency Ablation: Radiofrequency energy is used to heat and close off problematic veins. It’s another minimally invasive option for treating varicose veins and underlying chronic venous insufficiency, and it offers excellent results with minimal downtime.
- VenaSeal: VenaSeal is a revolutionary treatment that uses medical-grade adhesive to seal off damaged veins. It’s virtually painless and requires no downtime, making it a preferred choice for many patients. Furthermore, it doesn’t necessitate wearing compression stockings.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy: In cases where physical removal of varicose veins is necessary, ambulatory phlebectomy involves small incisions to remove the veins with minimal scarring. It’s a cosmetic procedure for superficial varicose veins.
At Long Island Vein Treatment, we prioritize accurate diagnosis as the foundation of our treatment plans. Before recommending any procedure, our experienced vein specialists perform a thorough evaluation of your condition using duplex ultrasound. This advanced imaging technique allows us to visualize the blood flow within your veins and pinpoint the root cause of your spider veins or varicose veins. This diagnostic precision ensures that our treatment plans are tailored specifically to your needs, maximizing the chances of successful outcomes.
Personalized Treatment Plans
We understand that every patient is different, and so are their vein issues. That’s why we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to vein treatment. Once we’ve diagnosed the underlying cause of your vein problems, we curate a personalized treatment plan designed to address your specific needs and goals. Whether you require sclerotherapy, EVLA, radiofrequency ablation, VenaSeal, or ambulatory phlebectomy, rest assured your treatment plan will be crafted to ensure the best possible results.
Free Insurance Verification
We know that dealing with insurance can be a source of stress and confusion. That’s why we offer free insurance verification even before your first appointment. We believe in transparency and want you to have a clear understanding of your coverage and potential out-of-pocket expenses from the outset. Our team will work closely with your insurance provider to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve, making your journey as smooth as possible.

What are the common symptoms of vein problems?
Common symptoms of vein issues include visible spider veins or bulging varicose veins, leg pain or discomfort, swelling in the legs and ankles, leg cramps, and skin changes such as discoloration or ulcers. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s advisable to consult a vein specialist for a thorough evaluation.
Are varicose veins only a cosmetic concern?
No, varicose veins are not just a cosmetic issue. While they can be unsightly, they may also cause pain, discomfort, and other symptoms. Additionally, untreated varicose veins can lead to more serious complications, such as skin ulcers or blood clots. It’s essential to address varicose veins both for cosmetic and health reasons.
What is the difference between spider veins and varicose veins?
Spider veins are small, thin, and often appear as red or blue lines on the skin’s surface. Varicose veins, on the other hand, are larger and can be raised above the skin’s surface. They may appear twisted or bulging and are typically blue or dark purple. Varicose veins often cause more discomfort and are associated with more significant venous issues.
How do I know which vein treatment is right for me?
The choice of vein treatment depends on several factors, including the size and severity of your vein issues, your overall health, and your treatment goals. During your initial consultation at Long Island Vein Treatment, our board-certified vein doctors will perform a thorough evaluation and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Are vein treatments painful?
Minimally invasive vein treatments are generally well-tolerated and cause minimal discomfort. Patients may experience some mild sensations during the procedures, such as a slight burning or tingling sensation, but this is usually brief. Most patients can return to their daily activities shortly after treatment.
How long does it take to see results from vein treatment?
The timeline for seeing results from vein treatment can vary depending on the specific procedure and the individual. In many cases, patients notice improvement in their symptoms and the appearance of their veins within a few weeks to a few months after treatment. Full results may continue to develop over time.
Is vein treatment covered by insurance?
Many insurance plans cover vein treatment when it is considered medically necessary. Our team at Long Island Vein Treatment offers free insurance verification to help you understand your coverage and potential out-of-pocket expenses. We work closely with your insurance provider to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve.
Can I resume normal activities after vein treatment?
In most cases, patients can resume their normal activities immediately after minimally invasive vein treatment. However, it’s essential to follow your doctor’s post-procedure instructions and avoid strenuous activities for a brief period. Your vein specialist will provide you with specific guidance based on your treatment.
Are there any risks associated with vein treatment?
While minimally invasive vein treatments are generally safe, like any medical procedure, there are some risks involved. These risks can include minor bruising, swelling, or discomfort. Serious complications are rare but may include infection or nerve injury. Your vein specialist will discuss potential risks and benefits with you during your consultation.
How can I prevent future vein issues after treatment?
To prevent future vein problems, it’s essential to follow your doctor’s post-treatment recommendations, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and consider wearing compression stockings if advised. Staying physically active, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding prolonged periods of sitting or standing can also help prevent new vein issues from developing.
