Austin Vein Specialists is now offering the amazing Vein Viewer vein treatment technology in Austin, TX to their patients to treat varicose and spider veins.
The Vein Viewer uses harmless infrared light waves to allow our doctors to “see-through” the skin (similar to superman’s x-ray vision) in order to more precisely deliver treatment to unsightly or painful varicose and spider veins of the skin in the legs, face, or other parts of the body.
Previously, the only way to see through the skin to evaluate veins was to use ultrasound machines, which are often large and cumbersome for the doctor to utilize while he is trying to do surface vein treatments such as laser or sclerotherapy. Ultrasound waves often penetrate too deep to be useful at the very surface of the skin and ultrasound machines do not demonstrate the fine detail needed to examine the very small vein in the skin or immediately under the skin.
But now with the use of the VeinViewer device, all of the small surface and skin veins can be examined in extreme detail prior to or during vein treatments of spider veins and varicose veins. The device, therefore, assists vein specialists in performing more precise vein evaluations and treatments.
