There are a variety of paths patients take to get to our vein treatment specialist, and some are quicker and more effective than others. Some patients begin with their primary care physicians, who may begin by recommending lifestyle changes to help alleviate symptoms. If varicose veins are painful or you have pronounced leg swelling, your primary doctor may refer you for specialist care to our vein doctors.
Dermatologist: Laser Treatment for Superficial Veins
In other cases, patients get treated at the dermatologist for varicose and spider veins. Dermatologists can diagnose superficial varicose veins and spider veins visible through the skin. They may offer laser treatment to close the veins, which are then reabsorbed into the body. Often, this superficial dermatological vein treatment doesn’t eliminate symptoms and doesn’t diagnose the root cause of the problem for comprehensive, successful treatment.
Dermatologists typically don’t go as far as to use ultrasound to closely examine the state of your vascular system. They may refer you for a more in-depth exam with our vein treatment specialist, because we have the tools and experience to get to the source of your vein problems–and make a precise diagnosis.
