Laser Spider Vein Removal new 333

If you have varicose veins in your legs or elsewhere and seek treatment, look no further. Let me introduce you to the best solution: Laser Spider Vein Removal. Say goodbye to those twisted, lumpy veins.

This treatment, also known as endovenous laser therapy, works effectively. But first, let’s understand what causes varicose veins.

Why do the varicose veins appear?

Why do the varicose veins appear new 2024

Varicose veins are blue or purple-colored, swollen veins that appear beneath your skin. Although most common in the legs, they can also be found in other body parts.

Varicose veins form when the valves inside the veins stop working, resulting in blood pooling inside the veins. That is why they are bulging and twisted. Varicose veins mainly result from pregnancy or obesity, but there can be other reasons as well. 

Now that you know why varicose veins appear. Let us move toward the varicose vein laser treatment.

What is varicose vein laser treatment?

Certainly! In laser treatment for varicose veins, the laser’s heat shrinks the vein and forms scar tissue, sealing it. The body absorbs the dead tissue, aiding in the healing process.

What is endovenous laser ablation therapy?

Endovenous laser ablation therapy is a simple treatment for varicose veins. A thin laser fiber goes into the vein through a small cut. The heat from the laser makes the vein close and redirects blood flow. It’s better than surgery because it’s less painful, needs less recovery, and has fewer problems.

What is the best laser for spider vein removal?

Choosing the right laser for spider vein removal hinges on skin type, vein size, and the practitioner’s skill. Pulsed dye lasers (PDL) and Nd: YAG lasers are typically popular options. 

PDL aims at hemoglobin in blood vessels, while Nd: YAG lasers go deeper into the skin, making them ideal for larger veins. Consulting a skilled dermatologist or plastic surgeon can help you find the best laser treatment for your needs.

What is the right time for laser therapy for spider veins?

Although they are not a severe problem, varicose veins can become painful with time. If they become inflamed and sore, you will need endovenous laser treatment, but you do not have to wait for them to become painful. 

You can have endovenous treatment whenever you like. Although varicose veins do not look attractive, treating them will make you feel a lot better.

Varicose vein laser treatment is convenient and often conducted in a small treatment room or health service provider’s office. Here’s how it works:

  1. Protection: You’ll lie on the examination table and wear goggles to shield your eyes from the laser.
  2. The medicine numbs the area before treatment using a catheter.
  3. Ultrasound: A device checks your vein before, during, and after treatment, showing images on a screen.
  4. Laser treatment for varicose veins involves inserting a catheter through a small cut in the vein to heat and seal it.

How long does it take?

The whole procedure will take less than an hour. After the procedure, we will recommend that you walk for a while. If any bruising occurs, don’t get alarmed. It will fade in 2 weeks at the most.

Another benefit of endovenous laser ablation is that stitches are not needed; a bandage will suffice.

Aftercare Instructions:

Here are some simple tips to follow after your treatment:

  1. Apply ice: Once you’re home, use an ice pack on the treated area to reduce swelling.
  2. Avoid water: Keep the treated area dry for 48 hours to prevent sensitivity.
  3. Wear stockings to prevent swelling and keep blood from pooling by wearing them for a few days.
  4. Stay active: Avoid prolonged sitting or standing; instead, walk regularly. Avoid strenuous activities like running.
  5. Always talk to your doctor before taking any medication to prevent thinning your blood and potential bleeding from cuts.
