What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, twisted and enlarged veins that are the results of faulty and damaged valves. Globally, more than 23 per cent of adult people are thought to be affected by varicose veins every year. Varicose veins commonly affect the legs but can occur at other parts of the body too. Legs are mostly affected by varicose veins because of the pressure that is exerted on the legs due to long-standing hours.

Diagnosis

The doctor will look at the patient’s legs. After the physical examination, the doctor may suggest some tests, such as:

  • Doppler Test: A transducer probe that detects the direction of blood flow, both in the skin veins and deep veins.
  • Ultrasound Scan: This scan helps in a detailed examination of the deep veins, particularly if the patient has a history of deep vein thrombosis.

Surgery

Doctors at Pristyn Care in India provide most advanced varicose veins treatments, the surgical treatments involve removal of varicose veins or closing the same. Removal or closure of varicose veins doesn't cause issues with blood flow as blood continues to flow through other veins. Our team is dedicated to providing a hassle-free experience and best-in-class laser surgery to cure varicose veins.

A laser is a beam of light and a doctor can use a laser-based surgical device to treat varicose veins. Laser heat ablates a vein and a scar tissue closes the vein. A closed vein loses its source of blood and dies.

Facts on Varicose Veins 

  • Age can make the condition of varicose veins worse. But young people who have to sit or stand for long hours without any break can also get varicose veins. 
  • Varicose veins can develop due to genetic factors.
  • Varicose veins are not only a cosmetic issue. On the contrary, most people feel heaviness, cramping, swelling, dryness, itchiness which are symptoms of skin discolouration, ulcers, bleeding, etc.  

What happens in laser treatment for varicose veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, bulging and twisted veins that often occur on the things or the calves. In laser treatment for varicose veins, a thin beam of radiation in the form of a laser is passed through the varicose veins. The treatment is done as a daycare procedure and hardly requires any hospital stay. At the beginning of the treatment, the vascular surgeon numbs the area that needs to be treated. The doctor will inject numbing medicine in the vein that needs to be treated. Using a Doppler ultrasound device, the doctor will check the condition of the vein before and during the treatment. The doctor will view the image of the vein using sound waves on a monitor. The surgeon will make a small incision on the skin and guide a catheter in the varicose veins. A laser fibre will then be inserted into the catheter. As the surgeon draws back the catheter, the heat emitted from the laser closes the faulty and veins and leads them to eventually shrink.

Treatment of varicose veins with sclerotherapy

At the beginning of sclerotherapy for varicose veins, the patient is asked to lie down with their legs in an elevated position. The vascular surgeon cleans the area to be treated with alcohol and numbs it. The doctor uses a fine needle and then injects a medicated solution into the faulty veins. The injected medication irritates the lining of the damaged veins, causes them to swell and stops the flow of blood. Once the solution is injected, the doctor massages the area. The doctor may tap a compression pad to keep the surgical area compressed. 

Best home remedies or non-surgical treatments for varicose veins

If you have symptoms of varicose veins, you can try the following home remedies or non-surgical methods to manage the symptoms of varicose veins.

  1. Exercise - Regular exercise regulates blood flow in the legs. Exercise prevents blood pressure on the legs which is one of the primary cause of varicose veins. 
  2. Compression stockings - Compression stockings are beneficial for varicose veins as they apply pressure on the legs and aids blood flow towards the heart. Compression stockings for varicose veins can be found online or at any pharmacies.
  3. Herbal remedies - Grape seed extract can reduce swelling of the legs and the symptoms of venous insufficiency. This remedy is considered very much effective for varicose veins.
  4. Keep the legs elevated - If you are experiencing symptoms of varicose veins, keep your legs elevated as much as possible. Doing this helps blood circulation. Keeping the legs in an elevated position also reduces pressure in the legs and encourages the smooth flow of blood to the heart.
  5. Massage - Gently massage the area that is affected. To massage the thighs and legs, you can use medicated oils for the best results.
