Laser Vein Treatment – A Detailed Overview of the Procedure
Whether you want treatment for varicose veins, spider veins, reticular veins, breast veins, pregnancy veins or some other similar problem, The Laser Vein Center will be your best choice. In simple terms, a laser is a focused beam of light. In order to treat varicose veins, spider veins and other problems, the doctor uses a highly focused laser.
The heat from the laser damages the vein, and makes scar tissue form. Your scar tissue will close the vein. Such a vein loses blood flow, and eventually dies. In a few months, the vein gradually disappears.
Simple Laser Treatment – Our simple laser vein treatment is performed on the outside of the skin. It can effectively treat varicose veins and spider veins beneath your skin’s surface. In most cases, multiple sessions are required. These sessions are scheduled 6-12 weeks apart.
In case there’s poor blood flow to the affected veins, there must be a larger ‘feeder’ vein. This vein first needs to be treated with surgery, radiofrequency treatment, sclerotherapy or endovenous laser.
Endovenous Laser Treatment – Our endovenous laser treatment can properly treat large varicose veins in your legs. During the procedure, a laser fiber is carefully passed through a catheter into your vein. While performing the procedure, the doctor watches your vein on an ultrasound screen.
It’s important to understand that our laser treatments are less painful than vein stripping and ligation. Laser treatment at the Laser Vein Center also has a shorter recovery period. You will only need a light sedative or local anesthesia for your treatment. For stripping and ligation, general anesthesia is used.
What Can You Expect After Your Treatment?
Once the procedure has been performed, you will be able to walk immediately. The recovery period is also short. After a simple laser treatment, you can instantly return to your normal routine. If you have undergone an endovenous laser treatment, you will have to wear compression stockings for about 1 week or more. In order to follow up, your doctor will use an ultrasound to ensure that your vein is properly closed.
How Well Does It Work?
The Laser Vein Center is proud of its success rate regarding the laser treatment for varicose veins, spider veins, and other such issues. Both simple laser treatment and endovenous vein treatment give excellent results. Simple laser treatment has been popular for more than 20 years. It’s very effective and safe. Even the endovenous laser treatment has a 9 out of 10 success rate.
If the endovenous laser treatment is unable to close your vein, you will have to undergo another treatment. Depending on your condition and budget, you may choose from radiofrequency treatment, sclerotherapy or another laser treatment. For some patients, vein surgery is a viable choice.
In order to improve your chances at success, you should discuss everything with your doctor. At the Laser Vein Center, we only hire qualified and experienced doctors. We make sure all the doctors have years of experience in treating varicose veins, spider veins, and other similar problems. We will make sure you receive the best results after your treatment.
