Varicosities and spider veins are common problems among my patients in San Diego and my usual recommendation is the use of a laser vein removal treatment to give them back their smooth, youthful, and flawless legs without traces of unsightly varicose and spider veins.
Spider veins and varicose veins used to be removed through surgery and sclerotherapy and until recently patients did not have any non-invasive treatment available. With the surgical removal of spider veins and varicose veins, patients are put at risk for possible scarring and infection and many patients think it’s just not worth the trouble and live with their pain for a long time. Laser vein removal now makes it possible for patients to have their leg veins removed without the need for surgery. It still provides the same level of accuracy and effectiveness as vein removal surgery without the accompanied risk.
Using laser technology, laser vein removal works by constricting your enlarged veins that will result to its degeneration. Laser vein removal works in getting rid of fine spider veins as well as large varicosities in the legs. There is no down time and patients can immediately resume work after each treatment since no damage to the skin surface is experienced.
Many of my patients with spider veins or varicose veins suffer from night cramps and chronic pain and this is the main reason why they seek treatment. Some even report experiencing leg swelling, skin irritation, sores, and inflammation. A laser vein removal will help alleviate these symptoms and provide a treatment option for those who are not comfortable going into surgery.
In terms of aesthetics, spider veins and varicose veins can be very unsightly and often times, patients find that they limit their choices in clothes in an effort to hide these away. After a laser vein removal treatment, patients can now flaunt their legs and not worry about unsightly veins that were once there. A laser vein removal treatment can help restore your self-confidence and positive self-image.
Laser vein removal has a very high success rate. In fact it has been found that the leg veins affected becomes invisible when checked through ultrasound about 12 months after the laser vein removal treatment. Laser vein removal is proven effective plus its complication and risk free, so this is definitely the right choice when considering having your spider and varicose veins removed.
