What Is Endovenous Laser Treatment?

Varicose veins are basic issues resulting from hypertension in the venous system, which is usually the aftereffect of the reflux in at least one of the saphenous veins and their essential tributaries. Vascular treatment for varicose veins with saphenous vein inadequacy incorporates unblocking or removal of these blocked tributaries by the endovenous laser therapy or surgery.

What Is Laser Therapy?

A laser is a focused beam of light. A doctor can utilize a laser to treat varicose veins. Laser heat harms a vein, which initiates scar tissue formation. This scar tissue shuts the vein. A shut vein loses its wellspring of blood and within a year or two, the vein is probably going to vanish. Well, there are different kinds of lasers – simple laser and endovenous laser.

Simple Laser Treatment:
Simple laser vein treatment is done on the surface of your skin. It can treat spider veins and modest varicose veins directly under the skin’s surface. Generally, more than one laser session is required in this treatment. They are planned each 6 to 12 weeks, as endorsed by your doctor.

Endovenous Laser Treatment:
Endovenous laser treatment can treat bigger varicose veins in the legs. A laser fiber is put through a slim cylinder (catheter) into the vein. During this, the doctor watches the vein on a screen. The laser is less excruciating than vein ligation and stripping, and it has a shorter recuperation time. Just local anesthesia or ultrasound therapy is required for laser treatment. Endovenous removal utilizes vitality to sear and close varicose veins. Doctors use it to help ease the symptoms of infections, for instance, burning, swelling, and disturbance. Endovenous removal is protected, less obtrusive than a medical procedure, and leaves no scars.

Purpose:

Simple laser treatment is accomplished for little spider veins and minor varicose veins. This is in some cases a subsequent treatment venture after a bigger varicose vein has been treated with a medical procedure, endovenous laser, or radiofrequency treatment, or sclerotherapy.

Endovenous laser treatment is used to cut off a bigger varicose vein, rather than utilizing the medical procedure to remove it.

A laser medical procedure is recommended if your varicose veins are sore, or red, and swollen. A laser medical procedure may likewise be prescribed if the skin over your varicose veins is disturbed. Varicose veins are not, for the most part, a genuine medical issue, however, they can be difficult.

Risks:

Generally, there are risks related to any kind of medical procedure. Risks and possible side effects to vascular treatment for varicose veins using endovenous laser treatment are listed as follows.

  • Skin: The laser can cause burns to the skin and may also result in a change in the pigmentation of the skin. You may even feel a slight burning on the skin.
  • Nerves: The laser may cause damage to the nerves but it is not permanent. Damage is still less likely than vein stripping surgery for varicose veins.
  • Blood clotting: Even though the chances for blood clotting are higher in the surgery, there are rare chances that it may occur in the laser treatment as well.
  • Infection: Sometimes, your skin may not be able to take the laser which can cause infection and pus cells in the skin.

You may have other risks, depending on your health, allergies, or complications if you have any. It is therefore important that you talk to your performing surgeon before you go under the needle. It is also essential to inform your doctor concerning any ongoing diseases, ailments, and sensitivities. Rundown the drugs you take, including herbal supplements and headache medicine. You may be instructed to quit taking headache medicine, nonsteroidal mitigating drugs (NSAIDs), or blood thinners before the treatment.
