Adios Varicose!

Say goodbye to painful or unsightly varicose veins with vein removal treatments at SoVous Med Spa NYC! Varicose veins are those twisted, enlarged, painful veins that usually develop in our legs and tend to rise above the surface of the skin. While they are not life-threatening, they can sure be painful and cause discomfort.

There are various options of self-care one can adhere to when trying to ease the pain and attempt to prevent existing varicose veins from getting worse, such as exercising, wearing compression stockings, losing weight, and avoiding long periods of standing or sitting. But sometimes self-care does not address the issue, and in many cases, compression stockings do not work. In these cases, there are a variety of varicose vein treatments available that would help alleviate the issue with this painful affliction.

What is Vein Removal?

Varicose veins can make themselves apparent with age, hormonal changes, pregnancy, injuries, or even just exposure to sunlight. These veins are damaged veins, developing when tiny, one-way valves inside the veins weaken. In healthy veins, these valves allow the blood to only flow in one direction, towards the heart.

Due to any of the various causes listed, these valves can weaken, allowing some blood to flow backward, accumulating in the vein. This extra blood in the vein puts pressure on the walls of the vein, causing the vein walls to weaken and bulge. Vein removal is the process of breaking these veins down, or even completely removing them, either with laser treatments or via minimally invasive treatments. There are multiple methods of varicose vein removal treatments that would work to alleviate these types of uncomfortable veins. During your consultation for vein removal NYC aesthetic specialist, Lisa M. Harman, and her team would be able to determine which approach would be suitable for your specific needs.

How Does Vein Removal Work?

For those seeking Vein Removal in New York City our specialists at SoVous Med Spa will work with your to determine the best option for you. Depending on what our experts suggest, there are a variety of options to choose from, with each having its own area of specialization.

Laser Treatments

Laser Treatment is a newer, non-invasive, non-surgical technology (where no needles or incisions are used) that utilizes lasers to close off the smaller varicose veins and spider veins. This works via sending strong bursts of light onto the vein, resulting in the vein slowly fading and ultimately disappearing.

Catheter-assisted procedures

work via inserting a thin tube into an enlarged vein and heating the tip of the catheter using either radiofrequency or laser energy. As the catheter is removed, the heat produced at the tip of it destroys the vein by causing it to collapse and seal shut. This is the preferred method for treating larger varicose veins.

High ligation and vein stripping

are procedures that involve tying off a vein before it joins a deep vein and removing the vein via small incisions. Removing a vein using this method does not adversely affect circulation within your legs, as veins that reside deeper in your leg are responsible for the larger volumes of blood.


Sclerotherapy is a procedure in which small- and medium-sized varicose veins are injected with a solution or a foam that scars and closes the veins being targeted. While in some cases, the same vein may need to be injected more than once, sclerotherapy is effective if done correctly, and does not require anesthesia. Within a few weeks, treated varicose veins should fade. Foam sclerotherapy is another option, where a foam solution is injected into larger veins, which closes the vein and seals it.

Ambulatory phlebectomy

is one procedure in which smaller varicose veins are removed through a series of tiny skin punctures. In this situation, only the parts of your leg that are being pricked would be numbed. If you’re looking for Vein Removal in New York at a more advanced level, to the point that leg ulcers are present, there is also an endoscopic vein surgery operation. In this case, your surgeon would utilize a very tiny video camera inserted into your leg to visualize and close off varicose veins, followed by removing them via small incisions. This is also an outpatient operation.
