Elite Vein Specialists have many different treatment options for patients, please click on one of the descriptions below to see more information.
Endovenous Laser Treatment
EndoLaser Vein System is an advanced technique that began in 2001. Unlike surface lasers which have several limitations, ELVeS literally heats the vessel from inside the vein. It is indicated for patients who have reverse blood flow (reflux) originating high in the leg at the sapheno-femoral junction.
Developed over 40 years ago in Europe, sclerotherapy at Elite Vein Specialists utilizes only FDA approved drugs to close undesired veins. It is a simple, nearly painless, vessel injection technique that causes vein closure.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
All diseased veins – from the largest of varicose veins to the tiniest of spiders – are caused by abnormal leakage of blood through faulty valves located inside veins deep beneath the surface of the skin. Over time, this abnormal leakage of blood, also called reflux causes veins visible on the skin surface to dilate and turn into diseased veins we call varicose veins and spiders.
Foam sclerotherapy is an emulsion of the same drug that we use for conventional sclerotherapy. It appears to have much greater clinical effect on the inner wall of veins. It suffers less dilution from blood and perhaps displaces blood rather than simply mixing with it. The results are very positive probably due to greater drug-vessel wall surface contact.
When treating spider veins it is crucial to locate and close any and all feeder vessels. These are blue-green in color and are called reticular veins. If untreated, spider patches can often become subject to early recurrance. These feeder vessels can often originate 4-8 inches away from a zone of spiders.
Hand Veins and Enlarged Breast Veins
No matter how well you look after the skin on your face, Other ares may carry the tell-tale signs of ageing. The skin on hands gets thinner and we lose fat from this area as we age, which means the veins will get bigger and be more prominent with time. Although they don’t usually cause any physical problems, veins on the hands or breasts can add years to your appearance or sense of esteem. By utilizing injection sclerotharapy, the good news is veins on the surface of the hands or breasts can safely be removed leaving you looking younger.

My large ugly varicose veins were gone with one treatment of foam sclerotherapy. I cried because I was so happy that my legs look normal again. I called Dr. Hyde because I was so excited with my results. He and his staff have been just lovely.
