Am I a Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
New Jersey residents who are experiencing any of the signs or symptoms of vein abnormalities in their legs should contact Vein and Skin Studio today to see if they would make a good candidate for vein treatment (laser therapy and/or sclerotherapy). Dr. Zbigniew Moszczynski is a highly-skilled physician that has helped countless patients with medical and cosmetic treatments for these common vein abnormalities.
Veins will often stretch and become enlarged when their walls have been damaged or weakened in any way. For the majority of patients, this is a result of their genetics, and cannot be prevented. Outside of one’s genetics, some of the most common risk factors include trauma to the legs, prolonged periods of standing or sitting, gaining weight, and pregnancy.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Vein Treatment?
Patients that are in relatively good health and have realistic expectations about professional vein treatments make the best candidates for this procedure.
There are only a few variables that will make a patient ineligible for laser treatment or sclerotherapy, such as being confined to bed. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should wait at least three months after the delivery, or they are done nursing before undergoing sclerotherapy. Anyone who has had blood clots or ulcers in the past will have his or her eligibility determined on an individual basis.
As always, the single best way to determine if you would make a good candidate for this treatment is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Moszczynski.
