Advantages of Laser Vein Treatment

If you’re dealing with unwanted veins, consider getting laser vein treatment at Fox Vein & Laser Experts. This form of light therapy is less invasive than traditional methods of vein removal, and it can remove larger unwanted veins.

By introducing laser light to the problem vein, laser vein treatment causes the target veins to collapse. A special device is used to deliver the laser light to the treatment area.

How Laser Vein Treatment Works

During the procedure, the pigment within your blood absorbs the energy from the laser and causes targeted damage. Since the damage is pigment-specific, the lining of the target blood vessel becomes damaged, and the health of the surrounding cells is preserved.

Once the lining of target blood vessels gets damaged, it causes the vessels to collapse. Over time, the natural processes that take place within your body will reabsorb the collapsed blood vessels. As the damaged veins are absorbed, blood flow is redirected to deeper blood vessels, which is where it needs to go.

What are the Advantages of Laser Vein Treatment?

If you’re looking for a way to treat and remove unwanted veins, you have several treatment options to choose from. However, when compared with the alternatives, laser vein treatments have several advantages to offer. A major advantage of laser treatment is increased treatment size.

Sclerotherapy and vein stripping are known to cause more discomfort than laser treatments. When a laser is used to remove unwanted veins, much larger areas can be treated. If you decide to undergo laser treatment, you can enjoy comfortable, fast and long-lasting results.

One of the problems with sclerotherapy is that it can be very ineffective for treating smaller blood vessels. It also poses a greater risk for bruising than laser treatments.

Sclerotherapy destroys problematic veins with injections, and laser treatments use pulses of laser light energy to accomplish the same goal. Bruising is much more likely to occur with injections. Another advantage of choosing laser vein treatment over the alternatives is the lack of recovery time.
