We are venous care in the Philadelphia Area!
There are times when in addition to procedures like ELAS to reduce reflux, dilated veins remain on the surface. These are too superficial and too large to treat with a laser. These veins are very effectively treated with an office procedure termed micro- phlebectomy.
Phlebectomy involves removal of moderate to large veins through micro punctures of the skin. The area is anesthetized. You feel pressure during the procedure but there is no pain.
After the removal of the vein, the puncture is closed with a steri strip or butterfly strip alone.
With the vein completely removed the recovery and cosmetic resolution after the procedure is much faster. It is never necessary to go to an operating room or necessary to have large incisions to treat varicosities. Phlebectomy allows a fast, safe, and very cosmetic way to resolve large veins
