Vein problems affect a tremendous number of people. While they can develop at any age and persist due to a number of reasons, they tend to affect individuals between the ages of 30 to 50 with the greatest frequency.
The problem with conditions like varicose veins and spider veins is the fact that they tend to persist even after their cause has been removed. For examples, patients who have experienced high blood pressure, a common cause of vein problems, may still have vein problems after lowering their blood pressure. This happens because the valves in the veins become deformed. This change is often permanent, which in turn means that a permanent solution is required to treat them.
Laser vein removal represents one of the more reliable solutions for removing certain types of veins. This procedure can leave the patient free from the pain and discomfort associated with vein problems by permanently eliminating the problematic vein.
What is Laser Vein Removal?
This treatment involves utilizing laser light to transmit energy to a vein. This results in heat once the light reaches the target cells. The heat acts to destroy the vein, which in turn causes it to reliably clot. This destruction is permanent, which in turn results in a long-term solution that removes veins.
Why Opt for Laser Vein Removal?
While methods of vein removal like sclerotherapy and vein stripping do work, there are a number of reasons to consider laser vein removal over these options. The benefits of this treatment include:
- Less discomfort – Patients tend to experience substantially less discomfort due to the way the laser affects the veins. This makes the process more bearable.
- Heightened reliability – Since laser vein removal affects the structure of the veins, it tends to provide more reliable results. This allows the vein to “die” in a more reliable way, whereas methods like sclerotherapy may not be able to reliably treat certain veins.
- Quick recoveries – Procedures like vein stripping tend to take anywhere from a week to several months for the patient to fully heal. Laser vein treatments are stable the same day as the treatment, and tend to fully heal faster.
- Short procedures – While other vein removal procedures can be involved and take hours, laser vein removal takes 30 minutes to an hour. This means procedures can occur during something like a lunch break, which in turn increases the convenience of treatments to the patient.
