“Spider vein treatments can be more comfortable and more effective,” says Dr. David Greuner of NYC Surgical Associates. “ICE Sclerotherapy uses skin cooling technology to lessen pain and provides superior results compared to traditional sclerotherapy.”
Online PR News – 15-April-2014 – New York, NY – New York, NY - Women and men with “spider” veins on their legs have a new, virtually painless treatment option. “ICE Sclerotherapy™ is a combination of vein treatment therapies including skin cooling which are combined to produce optimal results with minimal pain,” says the developer of the procedure, Dr. David A. Greuner, surgical director of NYC Surgical Associates. “The ICE spider vein treatment is available at all of our clinics throughout the NYC metro area, New Jersey and Long Island. ICE Sclerotherapy also provides results that are vastly superior to traditional sclerotherapy,” says Dr. Greuner.
“The two most common problems with sclerotherapy are the initial pain of the needle and post-procedure bruising,” says Dr. Greuner. “Both of these issues are virtually eliminated with ICE Sclerotherapy™. By using “cryotherapy”, or cooling of the skin combined an additional agent that causes increased contraction of the blood vessel, as well as an FDA approved sclerosing solution, we are able to make sclerotherapy much more effective.”
Injecting spider veins with a sclerosing solution causes them to shrink, then dissolve over a period of weeks as the body absorbs the treated vein. “We are also able to minimize pain and lessen bruising because the vein is more contracted after the procedure,” says Dr. Greuner. “The vein closes more effectively, and has less blood in it to cause bruising and discoloration.”
“Not every patient is a candidate for ICE Sclerotherapy™, but most are,” says Dr. Greuner. A consultation will determine the best treatment for each patient, whether he or she has spider veins, varicose veins or both.”
