As medical technology has advanced, it has also offered patients a greater variety of viable treatments for conditions that can impact the body and the mind. Varicose veins can become a great source of embarrassment for many City residents, regardless of whether there is an underlying medical condition as a cause, or whether they have simply arisen from natural physiological action.
While varicose veins are basically a condition where the walls of the vessels have expanded so much that they protrude from beneath the skin, there can be other factors that influence this condition. In some cases, where damaged sections of vein can no longer keep the blood from pooling as the valves in the veins can no longer perform the appropriate action, there can be underlying heart and circulation issues that are causing the varicose veins.
At Sutton Place Laser Vein Care, we understand that each patient is a unique case, and we evaluate the full extent of the condition in our consultations, before working with patients to find the treatment that is right for them. This can also be a factor of personal choices, and when patients are fully comfortable with the treatment process, this can further speed the process of healing.
EVLA is the standard for laser vein treatments, and involves a minimally invasive technique. A small incision is made in the skin, and the flexible laser is inserted into the vein. As the laser is drawn back through the incision, it retracts the walls of the blood vessel, and also cauterizes any excessive bleeding that can be common with traditional surgeries. This also makes EVLA an outpatient procedure that can require anywhere from several days to just over a week for recovery.
Laser vein treatments have made this process more accessible to a wider scope of the population, and this also means that finding the correct treatment can be as simple as contacting Sutton Place Laser Vein Care for an appointment. This not only helps to educate patients about their options, but also ensures that they are perfectly comfortable and confident about the expectations and process of the different techniques.
