“ Vein problems? This is the place!! – Vein problems run in my family. Several years ago I had my spider and blue veins treated with sclerotherapy by a vascular surgeon for the first time. The experience was quite painful and the visible improvements were short lasting and mediocre at best. What made matters worse is that I developed brown pigmentation over the treated veins. These lasted almost a year!! What a disappointment. I was told it had happened because of my darker (olive) skin color.
Anyway, it was with this baggage that I went to Nu Vela Laser and Vein Center for a consultation. A friend of mine had recommended the place but I was quite skeptical.
First of all, the minute you walk in you get a pleasant vibe about the place. It is tastefully done but not over the top. The staff was pleasant and respectful. Dr. ‘D’ as he is known in the office was informative, empathetic to my prior experience and took his time to show me a lot of his before/after patient pictures. I guess having sensed my skepticism, he even offered to do a free test area on my upper thigh. I figured that was thoughtful and considerate. He also took detailed pictures of the area before the treatment, so that we could compare them later. I thought that was reassuring. Three weeks later the area showed amazing improvement. The pain of injection was minimal and there was minimal pigmentation.
Six weeks and two sessions later I could say my legs look at least 90% better than before. Although I did not particularly care about wearing the compression stockings in the middle of the summer, the results were well worth it. I would definitely recommend this place. They deliver what they promise. The prices are reasonable too.”
