Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins that are raised above the surface of the skin. They do not occur suddenly, they take years to develop. Varicose veins are generally inherited, though they are also commonly seen in people that have had certain types of leg injuries, deep vein clots, or who spend a long time standing still or sitting down.
Varicose veins can be painful and unattractive, but fortunately, with laser treatment, it is now comfortable and safe to treat them efficiently.
In healthy veins, one-way valves direct the flow of venous blood from small veins into deep veins. This blood eventually reaches the heart and lungs. When one or more of these venous valves stop functioning correctly, the venous blood begins to flow in the reverse direction. This causes the small veins under the skin to overfill and swell up, leading them to appear swollen, engorged, or rope-like. These are varicose veins.
The main symptom of varicose veins is pain in the legs, usually combined with a feeling of heaviness and tiredness. Other symptoms include swelling of the ankle and lower leg, itchiness, and discoloration of skin near the ankle.
If left untreated, varicose veins can cause rashes, infections, blood clots, and long-term swelling, which can lead to other serious skin conditions and problems. Over time, varicose veins can also lead to skin discoloration and the formation of ulcers and other non-healing wounds.
Until recently, the only treatment available for varicose veins was vein stripping. Vein stripping is an invasive surgical procedure where the vein is surgically removed through an incision made on the knee. However, the procedure may not be suitable for everyone or can have complications like nerve damage or infection. That is why laser treatment of varicose veins is a safer and much-preferred alternative.
At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, we use endovenous laser therapy to treat varicose veins. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser and ultrasound to stop the blood flow in the weakened vein. This reduces the external and internal symptoms of varicose veins and prevents long-term complications.
Most insurance providers cover the cost of laser treatment for varicose veins if the patient is suffering from pain due to the enlarged veins. The overall cost of laser treatment for varicose veins depends on several factors like:
If the condition is present in one leg or both legs
The area to be treated
The equipment being used
The cost of consultation
The doctor’s fees
The location of the medical facility
The average cost of laser treatment for varicose veins ranges from Rs. 80,00,00 to Rs. 1,00,000 for one side + 18% GST at Arra Aesthetics, Pune. Dr. Vasant Gholave will discuss every aspect of the cost of laser treatment for varicose veins with you during consultation.
The procedure of endovenous laser therapy for varicose veins is as follows:
First, local anesthesia or general anesthesia is administered.
Using ultrasound guidance, the surgeon inserts a very thin catheter into the vein.
The surgeon passes an optic fiber through the catheter, which transmits a laser beam.
The laser radiation seals the vein walls from the inside, stopping the blood flow in that area.
The weakened vein is “sealed” and the aesthetic and physical symptoms of varicose veins disappear. The risk of long-term complications also decreases.
The procedure is very short and is generally completed in about 40 minutes.
There are many advantages to endovenous laser therapy, like:
No incisions, only single punctures
Minimal to no scarring
Short recovery period
