“A local anesthetic is also applied to the treatment area, making the procedure virtually pain free.”
San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
This month the South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute in San Jose, California is launching a new campaign to educate the public on their choices for vein disease treatment. The center is focusing specifically on sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive procedure that is particularly effective at treating fine spider veins.
South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute, headed by Dr. Polly Kokinos, Dr. Jafar Tay, Dr. John Frusha, and Dr. Kim Rappaport, regularly turns to sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of fine veins. “The treatment uses only a fine needle,” explains Dr. Kokinos. “A local anesthetic is also applied to the treatment area, making the procedure virtually pain free.”
Sclerotherapy helps reduce the appearance of spider veins by sealing the walls of the diseased vessel. Most patients are pleased with the results and are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
The vein center is turning to Facebook and Twitter to help inform the public about the benefits of this procedure. The doctors and staff hope that through the information they provide the public can make informed choices about how to address vein disease.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
