Endovenous laser therapy is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that uses lasers and ultrasound to remedy varicose veins. Typically, this procedure is best suited to veins that are untwisted.
The main phases of proper varicose vein treatment often include removing the branch veins via endovenous laser therapy and the second is then followed up by injection sclerotherapy. The first phase of treatment can be performed in under an hour with little to no pain. Recovery time is quick allowing a patient to return to work the very next day.
There’s a misconception out there that vein disease is a cosmetic problem not requiring proper medical attention, however, vein disease is, first and foremost, a circulatory disease and frequently the result of genetics. If left untreated, varicose veins could lead to serious side effects, like deep vein thrombosis, venous ulcerations, restless legs and more.
