Varicose veins is a common vascular condition marked by swollen or distended and twisted veins due to blood pooling inside them. These tortuous veins form when the vein valves responsible for blood movement get damaged or weak. Though varicose veins can develop anywhere in the body, these are predominantly found in the legs. Pain, swelling, itching, and inflamed skin are the common symptoms of varicose veins. Thus, these bulging veins are not just a cosmetic concern but a serious medical condition.

Obesity, sedentary mode of lifestyle, pregnancy, and wearing heels are some of the major causes of varicose veins. Varicose veins have a tendency to grow severe with time and do not disappear on their own. Hence, timely medical consultation with a specialist is necessary. 

Laser treatment is the permanent solution for varicose veins. It is the vascular medicine specialist or vascular surgeons that perform varicose veins laser treatment. This advanced treatment for varicose veins is available at Pristyn Care. All of our vascular surgeons are skilled and well-experienced in treating even severe cases of varicose veins. 

How does a vascular surgeon perform varicose veins laser treatment?

The advanced laser treatment for varicose veins is a highly precise procedure that cures the condition permanently, using pulses of laser energy. The patient remains under the effect of anesthesia and feels no pain during the treatment. During the procedure, the surgeon directs the laser energy of high intensity to seal off the ends of the distended and damaged veins. As a result of this, the blood tends to flow through the healthy veins with functional valves. 

Eventually, the varicose veins collapse and fade away as no blood passes through them. Hence, laser varicose veins surgery prevents any unprecedented complications that could arise due to prolonged conditions. The entire treatment takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Further, only a few hours (4-5 hours) of observation are required to ensure the patient is stable.  

Why do vascular specialists prefer laser surgery over traditional surgery?

The doctors prefer to treat varicose veins by laser surgery as it is minimally invasive in nature. It can effectively cure even serious cases of varicose veins without inflicting too much pain on the patient. The advanced laser technique offers several other benefits over traditional open surgery for varicose veins.

We encourage you to seek medical help for varicose veins as delaying the treatment often results in further complications. 

Following are the complications of varicose veins that you should be aware of:

  • Forming of a blood clot(s) in varicose veins, called deep vein thrombosis
  • A blood clot can detach from the vein and reach the lungs to block one of the arteries
  • Hyperpigmentation of the skin surrounding varicose veins
  • Skin infections
  • Inflamed superficial veins of legs
  • Hardening of the tissues (lipodermatosclerosis) of the legs
  • Ulcers in veins
  • Open sores on the skin around prolonged varicose veins
  • Internal bleeding due to excessive pooling of blood inside varicose veins

According to vascular experts, these complications can be easily avoided by early diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins. The sooner you take notice of the symptoms and speak to a doctor, the easier it is to get rid of these pesky twisted and bulging veins.
