Effective Treatments for Spider & Varicose Veins

At Island Vein Specialists, we offer varicose treatments as well as treatments for spider vein reduction. Our varicose specialist knows the best methods to use in your specific case in order to produce the best results. Let our team help you find the right solution to end the pain and discomfort of your varicose or spider veins. We perform all of the following procedures at our vein treatment center on Long Island, NY:

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation: This treatment is used for varicose veins that are very deep and are beginning to cause pain. Using a powerful laser, this technique reaches deep damaged veins, breaking them down and closing them to stop blood flow.
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy: This treatment option is a vein surgery that removes unwanted varicose veins through small incisions. It is a minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure that produces minimal discomfort due to the small size of the incisions. Once performed, the procedure will have completely removed the damaged vein.
  • ASVAL Treatment: Our doctor is the first to perform this innovative treatment in the United States. The treatment uses acupuncture needles to streamline the process of varicose vein removal, which helps to reduce the possibility of staining after the procedure.
  • Sclerotherapy: This treatment is the simplest of our options and is used for spider vein treatment. The procedure uses an injection of the chemical sclerosant to shut down the damaged vein and stop any further blood flow to the area.
