Varicose Veins Laser Treatment

Laser treatment for varicose veins is one of the most effective, safe, and most preferred procedures to treat large varicose veins. Known as a relatively quick and non-invasive treatment, laser treatment for varicose veins is successfully performed in less than 30 minutes. With a much shorter recovery time, people prefer laser treatment for varicose veins. Invasive surgical procedures like vein ligation and vein stripping require general anesthesia because the vein is literally pulled out of the leg causing pain and discomfort.

Endovenous Laser Ablation to treat Varicose Veins

Varicose veins laser treatment, Endovenous Laser Ablation, boasts an impressive success rate of 98 percent to 100 percent making it the most ideal varicose veins treatment. This procedure involves laser heat, used to cauterize the affected vein, causing it to seal shut. Once the vein closes, the blood reroutes to healthy veins. The treated vein is naturally absorbed by the body and eventually fades away. The thin laser fiber inserts directly into the vein via a very small incision — so small that stitches are not required! 

Without the need for sutures makes a primary reason why Endovenous Laser Ablation includes a short downtime following the procedure. In fact, most of the time, patients return to normal activities right after the treatment. 

Vein Specialists at Fox Vein & Laser Experts

The vein specialists at Fox Vein & Laser Experts always recommend patients add a light regimen of walking into their daily routine. This helps prevent blood clotting and also promotes proper circulation in the legs. Light exercise allows the body to do its natural work to remove the treated veins. Compression Stockings are recommended to help with blood flow and circulation, and they also reduce the risk of more varicose veins developing.
