Laser vein treatment refers to medical procedures using light energy to treat spider and varicose veins. Laser technology is a safe, effective option for people with unsightly and unhealthy veins in nearly any part of the body.
You might need or want laser vein treatment if you have vascular problems such as:
Spider veins are tiny veins that often appear in the face and legs. They’re usually not harmful but can be a symptom of vascular issues under your skin’s surface and may cause distress.
Varicose veins are large veins that usually appear in the legs. They can look gnarled and rope-like and cause physical symptoms like leg pain, heaviness, and itching. Varicose veins develop when the valves inside the veins fail, allowing blood to move down instead of up.
CVI occurs when leg vein valves don’t work over a long period of time. This condition usually includes varicose veins and other problems like leg swelling, slow-healing wounds, and leg discoloration. It can lead to serious complications if untreated.
There are laser vein treatments to address all of these issues at Park Slope Medical Office, PC.
There are a few types of laser vein treatments, including:
The Excel V vascular laser targets spider veins by heating the vein walls and forcing them to close. The blood travels to other veins in the area.
The laser can also treat other vascular lesions and skin concerns like wrinkles, brown spots, and acne scars.
EVLA treats large varicose veins and CVI. In this treatment, your provider inserts a thin tube (catheter) into a problem vein. They slide a fiber needle through the catheter and deliver highly focused heat energy to the vein lining.
The energy damages the vein walls, and the blood moves to nearby healthy blood vessels. The vein steadily collapses over time after treatment. You wear compression stockings and walk after the procedure to promote fast healing and recovery.
