Varicose veins are a common problem, particularly affecting women and a few men above the age of 35 or 40. Advanced dermatology treatments are available to address this problem successfully. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain all aspects of the procedure to the patient.
Some providers may like to present varicose veins before and after photographs during the consultation. This will help the patient make a well-informed decision with full knowledge of what the treatment can or cannot do for them.
Fantastic, dependable, and board certified dermatologists Dr. Tri H. Nguyen and Dr. George Hughes III provide varicose vein treatments to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding communities.
What are Varicose Vein Treatment Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of varicose vein dermatology procedure refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same treatment with successful results. The images are taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when the treated veins have been eliminated and full effects of the procedure are established.
The surgeon will take care to obtain these photos with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients in a discreet way. The patient’s identity is usually kept confidential as per the standard protocol. The only goal of the surgeon in this exercise is to educate new patients about various aspects of varicose vein treatment with the help of these photos.
When a patient seeks varicose vein treatment for the first time, they may not necessarily have a clear idea of how the procedure can help improve their skin appearance. Some patients may need a more extensive treatment involving multiple sessions, while others may need only a limited treatment for minor varicose veins.
In some cases, the dermatologist may recommend a combination of two different treatments to achieve more effective results. In each case, the patient will be in a better position to make the right choices when they have access to varicose vein treatment before and after photos.
Having Realistic Expectations
A prolific and perceptive dermatologist will always try to ensure that the patient has a positive mindset, clear cosmetic goals, and realistic expectations before going ahead with the treatment. Varicose vein treatment ‘before and after’ photos can help in this process. It will help the patient to know clearly what to expect and what not to expect from the outcome of the procedure. This also minimizes the risk of disappointments later on.
This is what digital technology has done. There is not one major industry in the world that has refrained from utilizing this amazing technology. Now this technology has been around for years but the availability of the Internet and the number of devices to access the Internet has increased manifold. This means that more people can gather the information they need without notifying a soul.
A patient does not have to drive to the clinic to see the pictures (though for varicose vein treatment it seems a patient may have too, perhaps they could have images emailed to them but a patient would have to call Texas Surgical Dermatology of Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Hughes find out about this for sure) for most plastic surgeries. With these indelible pictures, now patients have more information to make the right personal decision for themselves.
The dermatologist has an option to provide varicose vein treatment before and after photos on their practice website but for this particular procedure these pictures are not shown on this salient website (as already indicated) but it does not mean a patient cannot see these pictures during the consultation. New patients can review the photos online in the privacy of their home or office even before they make up their mind about visiting the dermatologist for a consultation.
If the dermatologist is active on social media, they may even disseminate the photos via popular photo-sharing social networks. Reliable and stellar dermatologists Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Hughes receive patients from Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and nearby areas for varicose veins.
