What is the procedure for endovenous laser ablation?
A laser is used to close the vein, which causes the purple color goes away. The blood that was passing through those veins will be sent to other locations in the body as the veins are naturally disposed of. This may be repeated many times as necessary for veins in both legs. Each treatment is customized to the patient’s specific needs during their consultation.
What are the benefits of endovenous laser ablation?
After the procedure, the skin in the treated area will begin to clear up. In the weeks following the procedure, all traces of the unwanted veins will vanish, leaving you with clearer skin. In time, no one will ever know that you once had varicose veins, they’ll only see the clear skin you have thanks to endovenous laser ablation. Circulation in the legs will increase as the blood is allowed to flow more freely. This will lead to the reduction of any pain felt before the procedure, along with more youthful-looking legs.
What is recovery like?
A bandage is wrapped around the leg for 48 hours after treatment is completed. A compression sock must also be worn for seven days thereafter. The leg must heal under compression to ensure that bruising is minimized from the procedure. Each recovery process will be dependant on the patient, as each procedure is tailored to your individual needs.
