Dr. Joseph M. Perlman Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre


Are you ready to treat your veins in the most reliable and efficient manner with the safest and proven treatments currently available to treat varicose and spider veins?

You’ve come to the right place!

Venous disease is a complex field, ranging from cosmetic concerns such as reducing the appearance of spider veins, to medical treatments dealing with pressure-overloaded deep veins that cause superficial veins to dilate and bulge.

Best Vein Treatment Options

Vein treatments date back over 2000 years. Today, you can enjoy absolute peace of mind knowing that Sclerotherapy, Vnus Closurefast, and VeinGogh treatments conducted at Skinovative of Houston, are performed by one of the most experienced doctors in the entire Southwest.

Sclerotherapy and VeinGogh are the best solutions when it comes to treating smaller spider veins on the face and legs. VeinGogh is also effective in treating tangled, thread-like veins known as telangiectasia, as well as, cherry angiomas.

For varicose veins, Dr. Perlman utilizes one of two highly effective treatments: Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy and Vnus Closurefast radiofrequency vein ablation.

Before choosing a treatment option, a consultation with Dr. Perlman is necessary to assess your vein’s condition.

Whether you have small spider veins on your face or unsightly varicose veins on your legs, you can rest assured Dr. Perlman will perform the best, most effective treatment that brings the results you are longing for.

Benefits of Vein Treatment

Dealing with spider veins and varicose veins when they first appear, is the best way to prevent veins from getting worse or requiring more invasive treatments. Depending on the severity of your case you can expect:

  • Possible relief from swelling, cramps, and leg heaviness
  • Maybe regain the confidence to wear short dresses and shorts
  • Enjoy physical activities without discomfort
  • Reduce the need for uncomfortable (and unfashionable) compression stockings
  • Possibility to resume regular activities immediately

What To Expect During Your Consultation

After being welcomed by our friendly and professional staff, you will be asked to complete a patient form in the comfort of our spa-like clinic.

When you are ready, you will be escorted to your consultation room. During your consultation with Dr. Perlman, he will listen to your concerns and ultimate goals.

Dr. Perlman will then assess the areas you wish treated, and explain your treatment options, including possible side effects and expected results. In some cases, you will also discuss how to maximize your results post-treatment.

Together, you will come up with the most appropriate solution, uniquely tailored to your specific needs and requirements.

During Your Vein Treatment

Dr. Perlman will perform your mutually agreed-upon treatment for your spider veins and/or varicose veins using the latest technology and techniques.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, Vnus Closurefast radiofrequency vein ablation and VeinGogh high-frequency electrical energy present some of the most innovative, modern, and efficient solutions for treating both unsightly varicose veins and spider veins that surface on the face and legs.

Treatments can take as little as 20 minutes, making it a great lunch break treatment. Our staff will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. A numbing agent on the treated area will be used if necessary.

In the vast majority of cases, you will be able to resume your regular activities after your treatment. In some instances, compression stockings will be needed and it may be advisable to refrain from exercising or lifting heavy objects. You will know this ahead of time.

How Much Do Vein Treatments Cost?

Sclerotherapy and VeinGogh treatments for spider veins are considered cosmetic treatments, and therefore, are not covered by most medical insurance.

Nevertheless, the out-of-pocket cost (without insurance) to reduce unsightly veins from your face or legs starts at only $199 (check for a discount on our Special Offers page).

Are Vein Treatments Painful?

It’s worth noting that with the methodologies used at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, treatment is minimally painful. Bruising is expected with some varicose vein treatments which usually clear up in less than two weeks. You may not have to worry about any significant discomfort post-treatment.

Vein Treatment Results in Your Desire

During your consultation, it will be determined how many sessions will be necessary to reduce the unsightly veins completely.

One of the major advantages of our therapies is that Dr. Perlman is able to treat veins of various sizes, skin types, and tones. In many cases, you may be able to see immediate results and a more pleasing appearance.

As you continue to age, however, new veins or clusters of veins may surface. It is recommended that you check back with our office to take care of new spider veins or varicose veins early on before they become uncomfortable or unsightly.

Don’t let unsightly veins change your style or lifestyle. Call Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre today at (480) 690-5573 to book a consultation with Dr. Perlman to assess and choose the best treatment possible.
