Before & After Gallery
Human memory is often imperfect, especially when change is slow. Whereas treatment of venous reflux may lead to immediate symptomatic improvement, the visual improvement of varicose veins occurs over many weeks. Similarly, although a spider vein disappears immediately after an injection, patients may need several sessions and often have to wait for a month or two to see their desired outcome.
In a result-oriented vein practice as ours, it is crucial that we document and monitor progress objectively the best way we can, that is, with before and after pictures.
Accordingly, with every new patient we always get baseline, standardized, high resolution, digital pictures that we later compare with periodic updates. Our patients can have copies of these pictures on demand.
The after-treatment photos included in the gallery were mostly taken a few months after treatment. These photos are only a small portion of the photos Dr. Dishakjian keeps in the office for demonstration purpose. You can view some of these photos by visiting our Instagram or Facebook sites, which can be accessed by clicking the respective buttons located on our web pages.
The photos posted on our website are all without any patient identifiers. We believe our images are clinical in nature and are suitable for visitors of all ages; displaying legs, chest, hands, and face only. They are intended to provide you with examples of results you may expect from a treatment. As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
