What are varicose veins?

The condition of Varicose veins is marked by enlarged veins that are visible under the surface of the skin. These veins are found to be twisted and they appear blue to dark purple according to the severity of the condition. Sitting for long hours, wearing too tightly fit clothes and obesity are among the most common reasons leading to Varicose Veins.

Varicose veins are also known as Varicosities. For some people, varicose and its variant, spider veins are just a cosmetic concern. But, in some people, it is far more painful and causes discomfort in walking or sitting. Varicose veins affect almost twice as many women as men and are more common in older women.

Varicose Veins Diagnosis & Treatment In Kolkata

Diagnosis

The varicose veins doctors in Kolkata at Pristyn Care are well experienced and conduct a thorough diagnosis. They will have a look at your legs while you’re standing or sitting down to diagnose varicose veins. After a physical examination, the doctor will suggest the following tests:

  • Doppler Test: This is a type of ultrasound that uses a transducer. The device detects the direction of blood flow both in the skin veins and in the deep veins. It indicates where the veins have come from and help in the planning of any operation that might be required.
  • Ultrasound scan (duplex): It allows a detailed examination of your deep veins particularly if there is a past history of deep vein thrombosis.

Surgery

The best varicose veins treatments are to either remove the damaged veins or shut them off. It will redirect the blood flow to other veins and there won’t be any complications. At Pristyn Care, we provide advanced treatment for varicose veins in Kolkata using laser technology.

The procedure carried out for the treatment of varicose veins is called EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment). It involves using the heat energy produced by high-intensity light to ablate the damaged veins safely. The veins are sealed completely without any cuts or incisions.

Along with laser treatment for varicose veins, we also perform Sclerotherapy to treat mild cases of varicose veins. In this technique, a medicated solution is injected into the damaged veins. The solution irritates the blood vessel and seals it by forming scar tissue.

Why Is Varicose Veins Treatment Necessary?

Veins are responsible for carrying blood from different parts of the body to the heart. The valves present in the veins prevent the backflow of blood to the veins. The condition of varicose veins arises when the valves of the veins get damaged due to constant excessive pressure.

Varicose veins can be identified as dark-colored bulging and tortuous veins. The condition of varicose veins is predominant in the legs as the lower body endures high pressure and has to work against gravity for blood circulation.

Initially, the condition may not seem problematic medically, just an aesthetic concern. But these veins are not only unsightly but also cause pain, itching, and tiredness in the legs.

In severe cases, the person may also suffer from internal bleeding, hardening of veins, swelling around the ankles, and skin ulcers. These symptoms indicate that the vascular system is affected severely and varicose veins are becoming more problematic.

If you are experiencing such a problem, seek medical help immediately with Pristyn Care. You can contact us to consult expert vascular surgeons and undergo laser varicose veins surgery in Kolkata.

Why Laser Varicose Veins Treatment Is A Better Option?

The laser-based varicose veins treatment is a technologically advanced procedure that offers a number of advantages over conventional open surgery. The following benefits of the laser treatment make it a better option over the traditional procedures:

  • Resume normal activities immediately- The laser procedure is an outpatient surgery which means that the patient can head back home on the same day. There are no major lifestyle restrictions post-laser varicose veins surgery and the discomforts are minimal. Therefore, the patient can easily resume their routine activities within no time after undergoing laser treatment.
  • Fast and simple procedure- Laser treatment for varicose veins gets completed in less than 45 minutes and is not at all complex. The laser energy acts directly on the affected and swollen veins and shuts them off. As a result of this, blood supply through the veins gets restricted and the damaged veins fade away.
  • Minimally invasive- The laser treatment for varicose veins does not require any large cuts or sutures to be carried out on the body. The high energy of laser pulses is enough to reroute blood supply to healthier veins. The treatment is thus minimally invasive and absolutely painless. The minimally invasive nature of laser treatment also makes it a much safer option as the risk of infections or complications is negligible.
