What is Laser Vein Removal?
Laser vein removal, also called endovenous laser varicose vein surgery, is a medical procedure that uses heat from a laser to reduce varicose veins. The laser emits a thin beam of radiation in the form of light to close and shrink varicose veins. This causes scar tissue within the vessel and successfully seals off the vein, causing blood to flow through nearby veins instead.
The Benefits of Laser Vein Removal
This non-invasive procedure is a fantastic way to remove varicose veins and spider veins alike. The procedure is permanent and provides relief from the symptoms of varicose veins. These symptoms can include heaviness, aching, and bulging veins. The benefits of laser vein removal include:
- Minimal postoperative discomfort
- Nonexistent recovery time
- Phenomenal success rate
- No need for general anesthesia
- Relief from heaviness, cramps, and swelling
- Improved overall general health
- Improved self-confidence
- Significant cosmetic improvement
- More energy throughout the day
Who Needs Laser Vein Removal?
This type of varicose vein treatment isn’t for everyone, but if your varicose veins are sore, red, or swollen, your vascular specialist may recommend this treatment type. This treatment type may also be recommended to you if the skin over your varicose veins is irritated. While not usually a serious health problem, varicose veins can be painful, and you may also not like how they look. Laser vein removal is a quick and efficient means of relieving pain and giving you back your self-confidence.
Varicose Vein Laser Surgery Recovery Time
The recovery time for varicose veins treatment varies based on the treatment type and the induvial undergoing the treatment. Immediately after the procedure, patients are encouraged to walk for 30 to 60 minutes. If bruising on the leg is present, it should dissipate within two weeks. Someone will need to drive you home after the procedure, as it’s not recommended you drive yourself. After the initial 30 to 60 minutes of walking immediately after the procedure, any strenuous exercise involving the legs is discouraged for at least two to three weeks after surgery. Bruising and mild discomfort may remain in the treated leg for two to four weeks after treatment.
Possible Risks & Common Side Effects of Laser Vein Removal
The possible risks associated with laser vein removal are minimal. However, there is the potential for eye exposure during the process. Our highly-trained specialists will help ensure your eyes are entirely shielded before treatment to reduce this risk. Like any medical procedure, laser vein removal can pose some short-term side effects. These common side effects are a direct result of treatment and will usually diminish within a day or two. In rarer cases, it may take a few weeks for side effects to dissolve entirely. Some common side effects of laser vein removal include, but are not limited to, the following:
