Varicose Veins Breakthrough Procedure - now available with Dr. Ly exclusively on Maui
Do you have unsightly leg veins that prevent you from wearing a skirt? Too hot to wear pants, but embarrassed to wear shorts? Do you have achy, throbbing, swollen and cramping legs? Do you have leg ulcers? You may have undiagnosed varicose vein. An estimated 25 million people in the United States suffer from varicose veins. Today, thanks to modern technology, there is an alternative treatment option to traditional surgical vein stripping.
Kahului Maui Dermatologist Dr. Micki Ly reports that she and her clients have embraced this exciting and effective new treatment that includes State-of-the-Art Closure technology and the results are superior. The Patented technology uses a very small catheter and radio frequency energy to close down the ugly vein with only a small nick in the skin on the leg under local anesthesia. Clients enjoy quick and effortless relief of their varicose vein symptoms, without the associated drawbacks of vein stripping (e. g. invasive surgical procedure), general anesthesia, post-operative pain, bruising and prolonged recovery.
Clients are very happy because the procedure is done in the office, easy, pleasant and they are able to walk to their car, resume their work schedule within 2-3 days, and the legs feel and look great. Dr Ly does varicose vein screening consultations by appointment. This new patented technology delivers incredible results compared to vein stripping surgery. Clients are very pleased to learn that in most cases the procedure is covered by traditional health insurance plans.

For years the only way to remove varicose veins was stripping, which is a painful procedure that took weeks of recovery. Now, patients can go during their lunch hour and have the veins removed with virtually no pain.
