What Can I Expect from Vein Treatment Near New Hyde Park, NY?
Step 1: Your vein treatment near New Hyde Park, NY, starts with a personal consultation.
When you schedule your vein treatment near New Hyde Park, NY, the vein treatment process starts with a personal consultation. Vein Treatment Clinic has a streamlined and comprehensive vein treatment process wherein we carefully diagnose the root cause of your vein problems before curating a treatment plan. As such, your vein treatment near New Hyde Park starts with a personal consultation with Dr. Caroline Novak.
During the personal consultation, Dr. Novak carefully examines your leg veins to look for signs and symptoms of vein disease. This may seem like a routine check-up, but it’s actually pretty unique — most medical spas treat spider veins without determining the root cause, leading to a high risk of recurrence. But our vein treatment center thoroughly investigates the root cause of your spider veins and varicose veins. Venous insufficiency is the root cause of most vein problems — it’s a circulatory disorder that makes blood accumulate in your leg veins due to the collapse of your vein valves.
Dr. Novak will ask you to describe what you feel because the early signs and symptoms of vein disease are often felt internally. She might ask you if you experience leg heaviness, leg swelling, frequent leg cramps, restless legs syndrome, etc. Based on these signs and symptoms, she’ll determine if you might have underlying venous insufficiency. After the initial consultation, she might administer vascular imaging tests, such as Duplex Ultrasound, to project a visual image of the blood flow in your leg veins onto a computer screen. This is the final step to identifying venous insufficiency.
After the visual examination and vascular imaging tests, we can discuss your vein treatment options.
Step 2: We discuss your vein treatment options.
After the personal consultation and diagnosis, the vein doctor curates a vein treatment plan for your specific needs. Spider veins and varicose veins can be treated with various procedures. However, Dr. Novak will select the ideal vein treatment options based on your diagnosis, medical history, insurance coverage options, and cosmetic goals. She’ll also provide an overview of all the suitable vein treatment options, discussing their unique advantages, drawbacks, and insurance coverage details with you. As such, you can make an informed decision about your vein treatment.
If you have underlying venous insufficiency, the vein doctor will start your vein treatment with radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal. These procedures collapse or remove the diseased saphenous vein responsible for all the vein problems. After the primary vein treatment, the vein doctor will use ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins on the surface of your skin. If you don’t have underlying venous insufficiency from the beginning, the vein doctor will simply provide the cosmetic procedures (ambulatory phlebectomy or sclerotherapy).
Your vein treatment will also depend on your insurance details. You can generally get insurance coverage for treatments that address the underlying venous insufficiency because they’re deemed medically necessary. However, the amount of coverage you receive may vary from one treatment to the next. Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation generally receive optimal insurance coverage. VenaSeal receives insurance coverage from limited insurance plans. Sclerotherapy isn’t officially eligible for insurance coverage, but our vein doctor occasionally includes it in the primary vein treatment (if you have underlying vein disease) to extend coverage.
Step 3: The minimally invasive vein treatment collapses or removes the diseased saphenous vein.
As mentioned previously, the first step in the actual treatment is addressing the underlying chronic venous insufficiency.
Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation follow similar methods. The vein doctor administers local anesthesia to numb your skin and creates an incision on the surface of the skin. She inserts a catheter or laser fiber through the incision and into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once lodged inside, the vein doctor delivers anesthesia to the vein’s walls and activates the catheter or laser fiber. The device generates thermal energy or laser energy to heat the diseased vein’s walls, making it eventually collapse. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier leg veins.
VenaSeal is a medical-grade adhesive that’s injected into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. The diseased vein seals shut, and the accumulated blood reroutes to healthier leg veins. Meanwhile, the diseased saphenous vein hardens into scar tissue and gets absorbed by the body.

Step 4: The cosmetic vein treatment removes the spider veins.
The vein doctor uses sclerotherapy to remove the spider veins on the surface of the skin. She injects a medicine called sclerosant into the spider veins. The medicine fuses their vein walls and makes them shrivel up. Over time, the spider veins get absorbed by the body and fade away from the skin’s surface. The treatment concludes within 30 minutes, following which you can resume your daily activities without downtime.
