“I developed varicose veins during my first pregnancy. Over time, with two more pregnancies, these unsightly veins became permanent, more apparent, painful, and started to interfere with my lifestyle and daily activities, especially during hot summer days.
Last year, after so many years of neglecting my condition, I decided I had to do something, and underwent the VNUS Closure procedure at Nu Vela. The minimally vein treatment procedure involving the thermal ablation of my saphenous vein by means of radiofrequency emitting catheter was almost pain-free and I was pleased that I was able to get back to my life even the same day without any need for pain medication.
Since then, I had a few sclerotherapy injections to get rid of spider veins showing on my thighs. Now the appearance of my legs have improved dramatically. Moreover, I hardly feel any pain or discomfort.
Accordingly, I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Dishakjian, the expert vein specialist at Nu Vela, to anyone in the Los Angeles area intending to undergo varicose vein treatment. In my opinion, there is no reason to wait like I did for so many years, especially that the treatment, as I learned, is covered by most insurance plans and Medicare. From my experience, waiting makes your condition only worse.”
