The laser has the ability to thermally close the varicose vein, thus treating the cause of varicose veins.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves the introduction into the vein of the optic fiber under ultrasound control. The optical fiber is connected with a vascular laser that emits light energy at the free end in contact with the vein. The energy "melts" and "seals" the dilated vein, which shrinks as the fiber is withdrawn.
Acting from the inside of the vein, under ultrasound control, there are no scars and no postoperative pain, and the patient can leave the hospital in a few hours on his own feet.
Laser varicose veins treatment:
No hospitalization required
Don't leave the scar
It has excellent long-term aesthetic and functional results
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are superficial veins that are twisted and dilated.
Veins represent the system of transporting blood from the body back to the heart. Most of the blood is recycled through deep veins (located in the muscles), and a smaller amount is transported through the superficial venous system (which is close to the surface of the skin).
Because they are not surrounded by muscles, superficial veins are more prone to damage. Varicose veins appear when valves that allow blood to flow in only one direction - toward the heart, become weak. As a result, the blood accumulates and stagnates, filling the veins like a full hose. Superficial Thrombophlebitis Pictures -The dilation of the veins can lead to symptoms such as pain and sensation of weight in the legs.
The veins in the 'spider web' are similar to the varicose veins, only they are smaller. They are also on the surface and are caused by the same factors that contribute to the appearance of Varicose And Spider Veins.
Why do varicose veins appear?
Spider Veins Vs Varicose in spider cloth appear under the conditions of collagen tissue of poorer quality. This is a hereditary factor that cannot be changed. Other factors that contribute to the appearance of varicose veins are: sedentary lifestyle, nutrition, as well as certain particular conditions such as pregnancy, professions involving prolonged standing and local trauma.
What is the most modern varicose veins & Spider Vein Treatment technique?
The first - and most conservative - measure that doctors often recommend is compression stockings. Wearing socks reduces the pressure on the oversized veins. Compressive stockings will control the symptoms and stop the formation of other varicose veins. However, they will not treat varicose veins that have already appeared.

Once the varicose disease has started, the only radical solution remains the surgical one. At present, there is no longer any use of venous stripping or low-yielding mutilating procedures such as the chiva method or sclerotherapy. Today, on the modern surgical scene, the intravenous techniques have been imposed.
Of these, the intravenous laser is the most modern method, while being the least invasive.
The recommendation of intravenous laser treatment is made after a precise diagnosis which involves performing a phlebological clinical examination and a Doppler ultrasound to allow the mapping of the venous disease, including the affected valves and venous reflux points.
