What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins occur when the veins in your body (typically on the legs) lose elasticity, which then affects the way blood flows through them. Normally, blood flows in one direction through a vein, toward the heart. With varicose veins, blood begins flowing backwards, leading to inflamed, blue-hued veins that resemble cords.
Varicose veins causes include
- Excessive inactivity
Varicose veins are not only unsightly, but painful as well. Additional varicose vein symptoms include:
- Leg “heaviness”
- Skin discoloration
Varicose veins can lead to more threatening conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, ulcers and restless leg syndrome. Because of that, it's crucial to receive treatment for varicose veins as soon as possible.
Laser Varicose Vein Treatment
Endovenous laser therapy, also known as EVLT, is one way your physician can alleviate varicose veins. Using a technique called endovenous laser ablation, a small device is inserted directly in to the vein.
Before treatment, vein mapping is typically performed to discover the source and extent of your varicose veins. This device uses targeted blasts of laser light and energy to shrink the vein walls. This eliminates varicose veins directly at the source, with only minimal pain.
When the vein walls are reduced in size, they collapse and are eliminated. This results in proper blood flow and improved vein appearance. Multiple sessions may be needed for particularly large or threatening varicose veins.
Recovery times for EVLT varicose vein treatment are minimal. The treatment itself takes roughly 30 minutes, and most normal activities can be resumed immediately after. EVLT doesn't leave any scars, though some minor soreness is to be expected.
