Questions About Varicose Veins Treatment
What are the methods used in the treatment of varicose veins?
Treatment methods may vary depending on the thickness of the vessel. Foam sclerotherapy or classical sclerotherapy and skin-mediated lasers are generally used in uncomplicated varicose veins. In complicated cases with vascular insufficiency, classical varicose surgery or intravenous lasers can be treated by entering the varicose veins with Radiofrequency. In such cases, more successful results are obtained in providing both varicose disease and aesthetic leg vein appearance with combined treatments.
One of the most effective ways in the treatment of varicose veins and capillaries is laser treatment. This treatment is done on the outer part of your skin. It can treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins just below the surface of the skin. Light of certain wavelengths sent by the laser is absorbed by hemoglobin. (595 nm or 1064 nm wavelengths) Hemoglobin absorbs this energy and transfers it to surrounding tissues, which become enlarged blood vessels, disrupting their structure. Thus, varicose veins are eliminated. Usually more than one session is required. These take place every 6 to 12 weeks as recommended by your doctor.
What should be expected after treatment?
The treatment usually takes a short time and after the procedure, you can easily return to walking and daily routine. Redness and swelling can be seen in the treated areas. This image will pass in a short time with the creams recommended by the specialist doctor. In rare cases, laser treatments may have permanent complications such as burns and stains.
