Microhook Phlebectomy (popularly known as ambulatory phlebectomy) is also an outpatient, slightly invasive procedure to eliminate spider veins.
HOW IT WORKS - it makes use of a phlebectomy hook to remove or extract unwanted veins through a chain of small skin incisions. The incisions are so tiny and would not require stitches. A local anesthesia would be necessary. Patients can expect long-term results.
AFTER TREATMENT – normal activities can be done a day following this spider vein treatment in Phoenix. Patients are advised to wear a compression bandage to relieve discomfort and promote faster healing.
Most patients do not experience pain and although scarring may occur, it can be minimal and would fade eventually.
