Laser Treatment for varicose veins is one of the more popular and successful treatments available today. All that is required is a simple laser treatment. The advantage to a laser treatment for varicose veins is that the treatment is done on the outside of your skin. This will allow the doctor to treat those nasty spider veins and tiny varicose veins. These two types of varicose veins are just below your skin’s surface.
Many patients may wonder how laser sessions are required for this treatment to work. The answer may astound you as these type of treatments only require one laser session at a time. The sessions will be scheduled once every six to twelve weeks. The time frame will of course be up to your doctor’s recommendation.
There is a chance that surgery may be necessary for those who have poor blood circulation. This is due to the fact that there is an improper flow of blood to these smaller veins by the larger veins. These larger veins must be corrected first before working with a laser treatment on the smaller veins.
There is a treatment for the larger veins using a laser. It is called Endovenous laser treatment. The way that this treatment works is that a laser fiber is put into a catheter which is placed inside the vein. As this procedure is being done, the surgeon observes the varicose vein on screen that has a duplex ultrasound. This type of laser procedure is much less painful than the more conventional way of vein ligation and stripping. As an added benefit, the patient has a much faster recovery time.
Varicose veins are unsightly and it is no wonder that many women want to correct their appearance. Laser treatment is therefore becoming the front runner when it comes to all types of varicose vein managements.
