Varicose Vein Laser Treatment 11

Do you have varicose veins in your legs? Or maybe in any other part of your body?

If yes, you are looking for some treatment for those veins. Look no further because I will tell you about the best treatment for varicose veins. This treatment works very well. So, goodbye to those blue, twisted, and lumpy veins with the varicose vein laser treatment.

It is also called endogenous laser treatment. But before going into the details of this treatment, let us determine what causes varicose veins to appear.

Why do the varicose veins appear?

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 bulged 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?

Of course! As the name indicates, the laser is used in this treatment. But you might be wondering how a laser could treat varicose veins. Well! It’s the heat of the laser that does the magic. When a focused beam of the laser is incident on the vein, it shrinks due to the heat. But, unfortunately, scar tissue also starts to form inside the vein, sealing it off. Your body then absorbs the dead tissue.

What is the right time for Varicose vein laser treatment?

Although they are not a severe problem. However, varicose veins can become painful with time. You will need the endovenous laser treatment if they become inflamed and sore. But you do not have to wait for them to become painful. You can have endovenous treatment whenever you like. Varicose veins do not look attractive precisely. So, treating them will make you feel a lot better.

The varicose vein laser treatment can be done in a small treatment room or even in the office of health service providers. This is the best thing about varicose vein laser treatment. It consists of the following steps:

1. Protection:

First, you will have to lie on the examination table. Then, your doctor will give you goggles to wear. So your eyes do not get harmed by the laser.

2. Numbing medicine:

Varicose vein laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure. A catheter will be used in the treatment. So, the area undergoing the treatment will be numbed. Then, your doctor will inject the numbing medicine into the vein.

3. Ultrasound:

Your varicose vein will be checked multiple times before, during, and after. This will be done via an ultrasound device. The image of your vein will be visible on the display screen.

4. Lasers:

The catheter will be inserted into your veins through a small cut in your skin. The catheter will reach the varicose vein, and a fiber laser will be inserted. The laser will heat the varicose vein and eventually seal it off.

Another good thing about endovenous laser ablation is that you won’t need stitches. Just a bandage will do.

Aftercare Instructions:

1. Use an ice pack:

Once you reach your home, put an ice pack over the treated area. It will significantly help to reduce swelling.

2. Stay away from water:

Keeping the treated area away from water for 48 hours is highly recommended. This is because the treated area will be more sensitive after the procedure.

3. Wear stockings:

Stockings will also prevent swelling. You’ll have to wear stockings for a few days. They will keep the blood from pooling.

4. Stay active:

Don’t sit for a long time. Don’t even stand for a long time. You’ll have to stay active. Walk regularly. But don’t run or do any strenuous activity.

5. Take medicine after consultation:

Don’t take any medicine without consulting with your doctor. Some medicines can cause the blood to become thin. As a result, your cut can start to bleed. So, consult your doctor before taking medicines.

Risks of varicose vein laser treatment:

Like any other treatment, varicose vein laser treatment also entails some risks.

1. Untrained doctor:

First, make sure your doctor is highly skilled and trained. Your body should not be subjected to any experiment. If the doctor is not well-trained, you can have some severe consequences. They include burns and nerve damage. Your doctor will ask you several questions before the treatment. Make sure that you answer them correctly.

2. Infection and bleeding:

The treated area can get infected or start to bleed. It will only happen if you do not follow the aftercare instructions. Keep in mind that the skin of the treated area is susceptible. So make sure to follow the instructions given by your doctor.

3. Inflammation or pain:

If you experience any pain or inflammation, contact your doctor. The treated area can be a little sore. Bruising is also quite normal. But if the pain becomes unbearable, call your doctor immediately.
