Varicose veins are uncomfortable and unattractive, so many women and men seek treatment for this condition. In the past, varicose vein treatments used to require surgery, discomfort, and downtime. Now, modern technology has made it much easier to eliminate these veins through a laser. Below is a closer look at a Laser Vein Treatment in Meridian ID and the surrounding area.
The Laser Vein Treatment in Meridian ID is minimally-invasive and involves a little discomfort. Tiny incisions are used to put a small catheter that delivers a concentrated amount of laser energy to the affected vein. The laser energy heats and destroys the vein without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue and skin. The procedure is completed in minutes and does not require any anesthesia, as well as no stitches, scarring or pain to deal with.
Downtime Is Very Minimal
Most patients can return to regular activities the same day or a day after having a laser treatment. This means the individuals can easily get rid of varicose veins without causing any disruptions to their daily schedule. The majority of patients do not experience any pain after having the procedure, but wearing compression stockings may be required after the treatment for a few days.
Permanent Solution To Varicose Veins
The laser treatment damages the veins so they collapse and are reabsorbed by the body, making the varicose veins fully eliminated. Because of this, the laser treatment is considered a permanent solution. However, new veins can form in the same area, and additional treatment will be required if that occurs. It is always a good idea to talk to the physician about risk factors involved in developing additional varicose veins and ways to reduce the risk as much as possible.
