Laser varicose vein removal

In addition to being a functional problem, varicose veins are a very common unsightly problem, and their incidence increases significantly after age 40, with the hereditary component being the most common factor causing the appearance of varicose veins.

The hormonal changes play an important role, and this probably explains why women suffer from varicose veins more than men. Other contributing factors are obesity or standing for long periods of time.

The varices are generated when the venous return from the legs to the heart is not successful. When the valves in the veins are not working properly, blood seeps through the valves and flows in the wrong direction. The blood overfills the veins, and they distend to smaller, more superficial vessels, causing them to dilate, generating varicose veins and varicose lumps visible through the skin.

The walls and valves of the veins are very thin and elastic, and can be dilated due to a wide variety of conditions including pregnancy, hereditary factors or age. When varicose veins become a serious problem, it is known as chronic venous insufficiency and symptoms include pain, leg fatigue and heaviness, and it is a condition that usually worsens as the day progresses. Chronic venous insufficiency if not treated in time, can cause ulcerations, which can be very difficult to resolve.

The technology laser present we offer now one minimally invasive procedure for the removal of the veins varicose.

The treatment of varicose laser vein removal Manhasset with laser works by thermally treating the path of the vein, thus causing its obliteration. The laser energy is delivered into the vein by an optical fiber that is introduced through a catheter. To introduce it, a small incision is made to create an entry point for the catheter through which the optical fiber is inserted.

When the laser is emitted, the vein wall is retracted and subsequently closed. Healthy veins surrounding the closed vein can restore normal blood flow to the treated area. The laser is usually emitted continuously along the path of the affected vein, while it is withdrawn until it is fully covered.

For the aesthetically annoying and more superficial vessels, the telangiectasia, there is another non-invasive technique, which allows us to eliminate them in a few sessions until their complete disappearance. In this case, the treatment is carried out by shooting through the skin, protecting it with active skin cooling systems at the same time we carry out the treatment.
