Dr. David Greuner says No-Knife Endovenous Laser Treatment™ is a minimally invasive way to eliminate unsightly varicose veins."Of course you don't have to be a model to want more attractive legs. Women with all skin types can benefit from this scarless treatment," he says.
Online PR News – 01-April-2014 – New York, NY – Cardiovascular surgeon Dr. David Greuner says that many of his patients with varicose veins want to avoid having the small scars which are often left by vein treatments. “The No-Knife Endovenous Laser Treatment™ is beneficial for these women, especially those with darker skin tones who may be prone to hyperpigmentation, or dark discoloring at incision sites,” says Dr. Greuner, who is the surgical director of NYC Surgical Associates, with several offices in the tri-state area.
"I'm definitely not a model," says "Julie", 34. "But I love to wear shorts and show my legs, at least I did until I developed varicose veins. I had the No-Knife treatment because I didn't want even tiny scars on my legs. Now my legs look as good as a model's!"
“Varicose veins can occur at any age,” says Dr. Greuner. “To treat them I developed the No-Knife™ minimally invasive laser variation of the endovenous laser procedure. Rather than using a scalpel, the surgeons at NYC Surgical Associates use a small needle to enter the vein using ultrasound guidance. With conventional techniques a surgeon will make a small incision and a sheath is used to introduce a radio frequency or laser catheter into the blood vessel. This method often leaves a small scar at the entry point, depending on the procedure. These scars are not significant in people with fairer skin tones, but for anyone with darker skin even smaller scars can be a concern.”
"Christine" is a 42 year-old corporate recruiter and mother of two. She developed varicose veins on her right leg during her second pregnancy. "I've always been very active," says Christine. "But when I exercised the veins on my right leg would ache and they became even more noticeable," she says. "I consulted several doctors and one doctor wanted to perform vein stripping, which I wanted to avoid. When I learned of this no-scar treatment for varicose veins, I decided to have it done. After having the No Knife treatment my legs look and feel much better," she says. Christine recently appeared with Dr. Greuner on the national T.V. show "The Doctors" to show her results.
