Laser Varicose Veins Treatment


Varicose veins are a very common problem among men and women, appearing as twisting, bugling rope-like cords on the legs. Varicose veins can surface anywhere from between the groin to the ankle.

Fortunately, new minimally invasive methods like endovenous laser treatment and microphelpbectomy provide a viable and effective laser treatment of varicose veins. Patients who have varicose veins may also suffer from smaller spider veins, which are treated with sclerotherapy and thermocoagulation.

Who best qualifies for Varicose Veins Treatment

Good candidates for Laser Varicose Veins Treatment are individuals who exhibit any of the following characteristics and symptoms:

*Restless Leg Syndrome
*Large, bulging veins on your legs
*Veins that are swollen, red, or warm to the touch
*Skin discoloration or texture changes

Preparing for Treatment
During your consultation, you should tell your doctor about any medications or supplements you are using. Make sure to list any allergies you have.

If you take any blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, you may have to discontinue it before Laser Varicose Veins Treatment.

Varicose Vein Procedure

Endovenous laser therapy uses a small laser fiber inserted into the faulty vein, which is positioned with an ultrasound. The laser heats the vein wall, causing it to shrink and close off.

After the Procedure

The doctor may recommend that your wear special stockings or bandages to compress the legs for several days or weeks. Make sure to walk regularly and avoid staying in bed while you are recovering from Laser Varicose Veins Treatment.
