Varicose veins treatment with laser

Varicose veins can occur genetically and as a result of weakness in the veins and insufficiency of the valves. Standing for a long time increases the vascular pressure and after a while, it can cause insufficiency in the vascular valves. In addition to these, pregnancy, weakening vascular structure with advancing age, blockages in deep veins and birth control pills are also factors that cause varicose veins.

The laser light is specifically absorbed by the Hb pigment in the vein and causes the blood in the vein to coagulate, resulting in the destruction of the vein. It does not damage the surrounding tissues of the target. The length of the treatment period depends on the number of vessels to be treated and their location. Generally, the results obtained in a single treatment are sufficient. Pain is minimal or absent during or after treatment.

Significant improvement is seen 2 to 6 weeks after treatment. Patients are usually allowed to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. However, it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise within 24 hours. It is recommended to avoid hot baths and limit sunbathing.
