Vein Treatment for Men
Even though women tend to develop varicose veins more frequently than men, many men need to undergo some type of vein treatment to maintain healthy legs and circulation. Men can develop varicose veins or spider veins at some point in life and some suffer from complications such as throbbing pain in the legs, restless leg syndrome, and poor circulation. Dr. Katzen offers several vein treatment options for men and can perform successful procedures without surgery. Set up your consultation for a minimally-invasive procedure to get rid of those unsightly varicose veins and spider veins with little to no pain, and minimal downtime!
Causes and Risk Factors of Varicose Veins
Men who stand or sit for long periods of time for work may be at a higher risk for developing varicose veins than others. People who work in the following fields tend to be at a higher risk of developing varicose veins:
- Taxi Drivers
- Truck and Bus Drivers
- Office Workers
- Policemen and Firefighters
- Postal Workers
- Stock Brokers
Stretching the legs frequently throughout the day and elevating the legs can improve circulation and reduce the risk of vein problems in men.
Endovenous Laser Vein Treatment for Men with Varicose Veins
Dr. Katzen uses the CoolTouch CTEV for the treatment of varicose veins with endogenous ablation. This innovative procedure delivers exceptional results and patients do not experience any minimal post-op bruising and swelling. It is one of the most effective treatment options for men with varicose veins and is a minimally-invasive procedure – you can return to regular activities after your procedure and will need to refrain from exercise and strenuous activities until the treated areas have healed. The laser treatment takes approximately 45 minutes and there are no scars or stitches involved!

Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are superficial veins that have been damaged and may appear anywhere on the body. Men who have gained weight and developed varicose veins, or those who are genetically-predisposed to developing spider veins may be self-conscious about their appearance. We treat smaller veins with a combination of laser treatments and sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is an office-based procedure and can be combined with a laser treatment for lasting results.
