As we mentioned in last week's post, varicose veins are a big issue when it comes to many of our clients. Apart from sclerotherapy, Better Looks offers another treatment that uses high levels of technology: endovenous laser. This innovative procedure is an alternate treatment to the surgical removal of varicose veins. It is simple, quick and extremely effective; its objective is to heat the inside of the vein and cause to seal shut and therefore, disappear.
EndoVenous laser treatment (EVLT) can be performed under local anesthesia and only takes 45 minutes for your legs to obtain a whole new appearance. The recovery from this treatment is extremely quick, and since it a very precise procedure, the risks of scarring are minimal.
Before you submit yourself for surgical treatment of your varicose veins, you need to be evaluated by your vein specialist in order to make sure that all potential issues have been brought to the surface. Patients should consider surgical treatment when the veins commence to cause discomfort and pain, and especially when self-help procedures have not rendered any results.
This technique requires for a thin laser fiber to be inserted into the problematic vein. By using an ultrasound machine, your doctor maps out the vein and then applies the local anesthesia. Using a small needle at the end of the vein, the fiber is inserted inside and advanced until it reached the end. This laser fiber then heats the inside of the vein and once the procedure is done, it is withdrawn back down as it was inserted.
This procedure leaves no scars and has minimal pain and discomfort prior to the operation. Your recovery period will be extremely quick and you can expect to resume normal activities the very next day, which means that you do not need to wear any uncomfortable compression stockings for long periods of time.
