Laser Photofacials

Broken blood vessels spider veins can cause redness on the face. Many patients wish to reduce the appearance of veins and redness in the facial area.

Treatment for Spider Veins and Broken Capillaries

Liquid Sclerotherapy

Liquid sclerotherapy is a fast, minimally invasive way to reduce or eliminate the appearance of surface veins, like spider veins. Because spider veins are typically asymptomatic, they are treated for cosmetic purposes only. When the liquid sclerosant is injected into the vein with a very small needle, it displaces the blood in the vein which causes it to vanish. The sclerosant creates an irritation to the vein wall, causing the blood to clot when it returns to the vein. As the body absorbs the clotted blood, it disappears altogether. This process can take 4-12 weeks, and typically the veins look worse before they look better.

To Our Valued Patients:

Like the rest of the world, we have been keenly monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is an unprecedented time in history that leaves us with great uncertainty. As we fight this pandemic, we want to reassure you that Dr. Michael Vasquez and Venous Institute of Buffalo will remain open and ready to meet your emergent healthcare needs. We were here for you before COVID-19, we are here now, and we will be here after COVID-19 is contained.

Telemedicine (telephone or video visit) is a safe way to obtain a consultation/appointment for all patients. Our staff has been reaching out to reschedule non-urgent appointments.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath), please DO NOT travel outside your home. Please call your Primary Care Physician so that he/she may tell you how to proceed.

All patients who are required to come to the office will be screened prior to their visit to ensure that they have not developed any symptoms related to COVID-19.

Most importantly, please make sure you continue to follow ALL guidelines set forth by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). By helping do your part by practicing social distancing, proper health and hygiene we can contain the spread of this pandemic.
