Laser Vein Therapy

Many people unnecessarily suffer silently with the symptoms of varicose veins. Day after day they feel heavy, achy legs, burning, throbbing, cramping, swelling, itching, and even skin discoloration around the veins. Varicose veins are superficial veins that have lost their ability to effectively carry blood up and out of the leg. This means that the blood is allowed to flow backward toward the feet and pool in the affected veins. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer from varicose veins when there is a great treatment in laser vein therapy, also called Endovenous Laser Ablation.

As we age our bodies begin to show signs of gradual slowing down. In our legs, this plays out as the veins’ valves begin to deteriorate, blood can begin to pool in certain areas of the legs and the veins increase in size. Varicose veins and spider veins occur as these damaged veins in our legs work against gravity to pump blood back up from our legs to our hearts. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer from any pain or embarrassment caused by these veins because, as there are a number of therapies to treat diseased veins, including injections and laser vein therapy.

Varicose veins are damaged veins that can appear on the surface of the legs and body. They often form over time due to a number of factors including genetics, age, hormonal changes, or having a job that requires very long periods of time on your feet. Upon being diagnosed with varicose veins, your vein specialist will most likely prescribe a treatment protocol of laser vein therapy – the gold standard in varicose vein treatment. It is one of the most effective and lowest-risk cosmetic procedures available, and anesthesia is not required. So what exactly is laser vein therapy?
