No matter which angle we look at it, varicose veins will always appear unsightly and unattractive. For most of our patients through here at our Massachusetts cosmetic surgery practice, the presence of varicose veins is more than just an eyesore. It could also result in a multitude of symptoms associated with pain and discomfort such as cramping, burning sensation, and heaviness, particularly in the leg area.

If you are one of those individuals suffering from the negative physical and physiological effects of varicose veins, you’ve probably done your research — from prevention to treatment. As to treatment options, you may have encountered two things: surgery and laser. Which to choose?

When Laser Works Best for Varicose Veins

Laser Vein Removal works best in treating varicose veins if you have tiny to medium-sized veins on the surface of your skin.

At our practice near Boston Cutera Excel Vein Therapy combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Patients with dark, light, or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.

When to Choose Surgery

Surgery is suitable as a treatment for varicose veins if your veins are too large to respond to laser and if you have poor circulation.

Let us help you figure which varicose vein treatment is ideal for you! Arrange a cosmetic consultation with Boston plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Russo and his team.
