Problems such as spider veins and varicose veins can be problematic, unsightly, and uncomfortable in many cases. These conditions may be caused by a number of factors, including lifestyle, hormonal changes, and pregnancy. There also may be a genetic predisposition that could make a person more prone to spider or varicose veins. We want you to know that Franklin Skin & Laser has solutions that can end your embarrassment and discomfort. If you live in the Nashville area and want to know more about laser vein treatments, we are happy to consult with you.

How laser vein therapy works

Lasers have improved a number of the tasks we perform in medicine today. Treating veins with laser therapy is minimally invasive and effective at achieving successful results. Treatment consists of directing laser energy at the problematic vein or veins. When thermal energy is absorbed into the vessels, they break apart. Subsequently, they can be absorbed by the body.

Laser vein therapy is efficient and only mildly uncomfortable, if at all. To treat a vein or veins completely takes a few treatment sessions, which we schedule every few weeks. Over time, the treated veins become less and less noticeable until they have disappeared completely. After laser therapy, the treated veins will not return. It is possible, however, for new problem veins to develop in another area.

Sclerotherapy

Laser vein therapy may not be the ideal solution for every person. Dr. Bengelsdorf also performs sclerotherapy, one of the longest standing treatments for unwanted veins. Sclerotherapy involves treating veins individually with a solution that leads to their closure. After injections using a very fine needle, sclerosing medication causes irritation to the walls of problematic veins. Over the course of several weeks, veins close up and the blood attempting to move through them is redirected naturally.

When you receive any cosmetic procedure, you gain peace of mind in knowing that your physician or surgeon has an extensive background in this type of care. With Dr. Bengelsdorf, you have all of these qualifications and more. A Fellow of both the College of Surgeons and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, Dr. Bengelsdorf graduated magna cum laude from the highly regarded Boston University Six-Year Medical Program and has earned the Physician’s Recognition Award. He is a member of several medical organizations, and has practiced for over 15 years. His specialty is in dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, with a focus on minimally invasive procedures. When you make the decision to seek any type of vein treatment, you can feel confident knowing that Dr. Bengelsdorf will be able to take you step by step through the treatment process, ensuring your comfort and well being.

If you have spider veins or varicose veins and live in the Nashville area, you have nothing to lose by calling Franklin Skin & Laser. We are happy to schedule your consultation with Dr. Bengelsdorf in our conveniently located office.
