News and Events
On the Medical Front:
We have achieved spectacular results over the last 10 years using the Endovenous Laser Ablation treatment (EVLT) to treat large veins, which is a revolutionary non-surgical alternative to vein stripping and it is performed in our office as an outpatient. A thin laser fiber is inserted into the affected vein, which then treats the vein as it is withdrawn. This procedure uses local anesthesia and takes about an hour in the office. It is covered by many insurance plans. Patients can resume activities of daily living the very next day. We have acquired a new state-of-the-art ultrasound system to help assist with the EVLT procedure.
On the Cosmetic Front:
For treatment of spider veins, we have made new advances for a faster and superior outcome using our proprietary “venous cocktail” and Cryo-Sclerotherapy (TM) which renders the treatment virtually painless. Kindly note that for leg spider vein treatment Cryo-Sclerotherapy (TM) is the gold standard and treatment of first choice and surface laser is a secondary choice due to results seen our experience for more than 2 decades. For facial spider veins the surface lasers is the treatment of choice and Sclerotherapy is almost never required. This difference is due to the anatomical difference in the spider veins on the legs vs the face.

I would like to thank-you for introducing me to the dermal fillers. You explained the product is used to augment and sculpt facial areas. What came as a wonderful surprise was that the result seemed like magic!
My chin, nose and laugh lines were injected. The chin injection was to “create” a little more definition on my profile; whereas, the nose injection softened a bump on the bridge of my nose (originally incurred years before in a lacrosse game). All the injected areas look, natural and definitely make my face appear more symmetrical.
As happy as I am with the results, I am also grateful to you for your skilled hands, thorough knowledge of the vascular system and your artistic eye. You always take such time and care and only administer a product if you believe it safe and a good match for the patient. I have very sensitive skin and have on many occasions benefited from your cautious care.
As we age, the faces changes and the soft tissue drops and the skin starts to wrinkle. It’s a true gift to be able to do a little maintenance to diminish the outward appearance of aging. I like that the products aren’t permanent because from year to year we may need to change the course of action we take. But for now, my skin and face look great- thanks to you! I also thank your staff for always being so nice and taking that extra few minutes to check for scheduling times.
