Warning: Cosmetic Vein Treatment Is Purely an Aesthetic and Short Term Solution

Don’t be fooled that underlying venous disease is solved with cosmetic procedures.


Lately, laser vein centers are big business. But are the physicians at the cosmetic centers, specialists in venous disease? Many of the vein centers that exclusively provide aesthetic vein treatment are not … and patients must pick up 100 percent of the expense. Most of these centers don’t provide diagnosis and treatment of the disease issue causing the vein problem.

Dr. Jeffrey Alpern, D.O., cardiovascular surgeon, vein specialist and founder of Vein Specialists of Arizona began his clinic to treat vein disease as well as provide solutions for cosmetic vein issues.

“Seeking treatment by vein specialist or Phlebologist is your best assurance of a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment. I founded Vein Specialists of Arizona to offer patients comprehensive treatment,” Dr. Alpern says. “And, most vein treatment is covered by insurance, rather than the patient.”

According to Dr. Alpern patients with varicose veins, spider veins, chronic venous insufficiency and serious leg ulcers can have their existing problem completely eliminated through these state-of-the-art methods – yet most doctors don’t even know about them.

“Streamlined laser ablation and radio frequency techniques are the best solution for venous problems,” Dr. Alpern states. “These revolutionary techniques are done in a quick, simple office procedure that allows the patient to remain awake and comfortable, recover quickly, and achieve a 96% success rate with virtually no complications.”

Insurance generally pays for procedures associated with diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. Only a handful of vein specialists throughout the US are experts in the use of these radio frequency and laser ablation techniques.

You can get treatment for the underlying vein problem and also get aesthetic results.

“The elimination of unsightly superficial veins does nothing to treat the associated symptoms,” Dr. Alpern explains. “The aching, tired, heavy, swollen, restless legs that make it difficult to stand, walk, sleep and rob you of a quality life. Even more important, failure to address the cause of these symptoms along with the veins means that progression is inevitable. It is important to address the underlying issue, while treating the vein issue.”
