See larger Reducing varicose and spider veins in patient Phyllis Cusumano using a process called Ultra Sound Guided Sclerotherapy.  Dr. Argyrios Tzilinis, Vascular Surgeon at Physicians Regional Medical Group, uses an injection solution called Sotradecol that will cause the vessel walls to be damaged, over time the body will reabsorb the damaged veins and heal much like a bruise. The Process takes less than thirty minutes and might require a second session for larger more prominent veins.  Photographed on June 6, 2011.  Kelli Stanko/Special to the Daily News
