Laser Therapy for Varicose Veins

Updated: Oct 20, 2022



Varicose veins most commonly show up on the legs. Some people will have little pain or discomfort, while others will be affected more severely by varicose veins. When the valves in your veins fail, blood collects in them, causing them to swell and expand, resulting in varicose veins. Sex (women are more likely to be affected by varicose veins), heredity, age (as you become older, your veins lose their elasticity), being overweight, and standing for lengthy periods are all risk factors.

Laser treatment for varicose veins

When a laser is used to remove varicose veins, the vein is heated from within and sealed. This is normally done with local anesthesia and light sedation. Laser treatment, on the other hand, is not appropriate for all patients. If this surgery is right for you, your specialist or consultant will talk to you about it at Eravio.

The advantages of laser therapy for varicose veins

  • If you opt for a laser treatment rather than surgery to remove your varicose veins:

  • You will be in the hospital for less time.

  • After the operation, you will have reduced bruises.

  • You will be able to get back to your routine faster.

The methodology

The specialist will use a portable ultrasound before the varicose vein laser treatment operation to note the position of the vein’s terminus in the groin and the ideal area to make an incision – this could be near the knee or below, depending on where the varicose veins are. They will then make a small incision near the bottom and insert a catheter into the vein.

A laser probe is then passed up the catheter to the groin once the catheter is in the proper position. To relieve any discomfort and provide a liquid barrier to protect the leg, a local anesthetic is injected around the vein. Short bursts of energy are employed to close the vein while the laser probe is removed. The cut is closed and the leg is wrapped to reduce swelling and bruising once the probe and catheter are withdrawn. For one leg, the varicose vein laser treatment procedure normally takes 45 minutes to an hour.


You may feel a tightness in your legs after the varicose vein laser treatment operation, and the afflicted areas may be bruised and unpleasant, but this is temporary.


Speak with the Eravio consultants for more information and any questions you may have regarding the procedure.


Unless otherwise directed, keep taking your regular medications.

Recovery

If you have only had one leg treated, you should not have to stay in the hospital for long, and you might be able to go home after a few hours. It is important to remember that you will not be able to drive yourself home after the treatment.


Within varicose vein laser treatment, you should be able to return to normal after a few days, but you should keep the bandage on for another five to ten days.

Although varicose veins may reappear after treatment, the majority of individuals remain varicose vein-free. If you have varicose veins, they can be treated again.

Security

Clients frequently inquire about the safety of laser therapy for varicose veins. Laser vein and vascular lesions therapy at Eravio is less painful and takes less time to recover from than vein ligation and stripping. Deep laser therapy takes about an hour and is done with a little sedative or local anesthetic. Compression stockings will be required for a period to aid in the healing of the varicose vein, but effects should be visible in two to three weeks.
