Did you know that you actually can get rid of those large, unsightly leg veins? San Diego’s vein specialists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are known for their effective treatments in minimizing the appearance of unwanted veins in men and women. Depending on the exact location and size of a patient’s unwanted leg veins, our board-certified dermatologists may recommend a phlebectomy to eliminate them. Phlebectomy, sometimes called stab phlebectomy or ambulatory phlebectomy, is the minimally invasive extraction of unwanted leg veins.
San Diego Phlebectomy
Patients looking for treatment for leg veins that are unsightly, causing circulation problems, or are too large for sclerotherapy often seek a phlebectomy. Phlebectomy is indicated for the removal of leg veins that are quite large, typically bigger than finger width. The procedure begins with the administration of a local anesthesia to the specific veins being removed. Tiny incisions are then made directly above the unwanted leg veins and a vein specialist removes the veins. The very small, specially placed incisions lead to a fairly easy recovery and minimal scarring.
For optimal results, your doctor may recommend a phlebectomy in combination with another minimally invasive treatment for leg veins, like sclerotherapy or the CoolTouch Laser. These treatments are effective for targeting thinner varicose veins and when used in conjunction with phlebectomy for large leg veins, leading to the almost complete disappearance of unpleasant veins.
