What is Aesthetic Phlebology?

Aesthetic phlebology is the study of how to achieve the best possible improvement in appearance of unsightly veins including but not limited to spider veins (telangiectasia)and prominent blue veins of the legs, face, chest, and breasts. Aesthetic phlebology focuses on cosmetic improvement much as in plastic surgery and dermatology. It requires an investment in technology and training by the physician performing aesthetic phlebology.

Dr. Whiddon has acquired knowledge and skills in CLaCS (Cryo Laser Cryo Sclerotherapy), the lastest and by far the most effective treatment of unsightly veins of the legs and other parts of the body such as the face and chest areas. Dallas Vein Specialists has acquired the latest and most advanced tools including the newest models of the VeinViewer, the 1064nm Yag laser, and the Zimmer skin cooling system. The aesthetic results are superior to the established techniques of sclerotherapy or laser treatment of spider veins and prominent veins of the skin. The CLaCS technique was pioneered by Dr. Kasuo Miyake of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Dr. Whiddon has spent extensive time with Dr. Miyake in his famous Brazilian clinic.
