Schulman Vein and Laser Center New York Discusses Varicose Veins: Right Treatment, Right Results

When it comes to treating varicose vein disease, Schulman Vein and Laser Center New York, can’t stress enough the importance of getting the right treatment.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2014 -- In the last decade, advancements in technology have increased success rates to nearly 100 percent and reduced procedure times to under an hour.

But sometimes seeing the results from the treatments could take some time.

“While there are many noticeable benefits to seeking proper vein treatment from a certified venous and lymphatic specialist, some of the biggest benefits come with a little patience and trust in your physician,” Schulman said.

For example, he said patients suffering from severe leg ulcerations could take a few months to a full year to heal completely from their open wounds.

“But when considering the years of suffering seemingly helplessly before getting treated the time is certainly worth the wait,” he said.

Schulman said some patients who received laser vein treatment in the past often remember little of what life was like beforehand.

“We are always encouraged to hear stories like these where the benefits are almost taken for granted because the procedure and the healing process were so minimally invasive and relatively pain free that patients can return to activities once missed without a second thought,” he said.

And while varicose vein treatment could require more than one procedure, Schulman said the benefits of seeking the treatment as soon as possible and following through until they are completed in full will significantly increase the patient’s overall well-being.
