29 Apr Endovenous Laser, a Solution For Your Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are more than a cosmetic problem as they cause discomforts such as cramping, numbness, tired legs, and pain.
In less than 1 hour you can have your legs free of varicose veins.
Endovenous Laser treatment takes between 45 minutes to 1 hour, and only requires local anesthesia. After the procedure, patients can return to their daily activities almost immediately.
How is it done?
During this treatment, the medical professional makes a tiny incision where he introduces a thin fiber into the injured vein. Through the fiber, a laser light is emitted with the precise amount of energy to close the vein and seal it permanently.
This treatment has a proven effectiveness of 95%; for this reason, it is very unlikely that the treated veins will become varicose again. Once the swelling and small bruises disappear, patients will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of their legs and symptoms of pain and heaviness.
Care after treatment?
Patients should take some care, such as avoiding heavy lifting (more than 20 pounds) until one week after the procedure.
