BEIRUT, August 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
American Board Certified Vascular Surgeon Asad R. Shamma, MD, FACS has pioneered the treatment of unwanted hand veins through the endovenous laser technique. By using a laser fiber instead of injections, Dr. Shamma offers a new method with superior results to the old techniques of sclerotherapy and phlebectomy.
Introduced in 2001, this method has proved to be safe and long lasting, yielding excellent long-term results. Women of all ages with prominent, bulging hand veins have found it difficult to conceal the aging in that part of their body. Dr. Shamma's technique rejuvenates the hand and restores its youthful appearance.
Though public awareness of this technique is relatively low, it has been embraced by the medical world. Dr. Shamma's revolutionary hand vein treatment was featured on Good Morning America, Newsweek Periscope and at several scientific conventions. As a testament to its strong scientific foundation, it was published in the prestigious Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (Oct 2006) in collaboration with Dr. Roxanne Guy (Past President of the American Society of Plastic Surgery).
Dr. Shamma has been teaching this technique internationally (Sweden, Austria, Jordan, Lebanon, Spain, USA and Canada) and will undoubtedly continue to do so in the near future.
