Varicose veins are dysfunctional blood vessels that may or may not cause symptoms in the sufferer. Regardless of whether they cause symptoms are not, the person who is affected by them usually wants to undergo some type of leg vein removal procedure. If you are considering such a procedure, you will need some information to help you make the best choice for your needs. Our team at DHR Health Vein Institute is here to guide you every step of the way.
A Closer Look at Varicose Veins
Many people who are looking for leg vein removal treatments are dealing with varicose veins. These blood vessels tend to occur in people who are overweight or older, although others can get them too. A vein is a type of blood vessel responsible for transporting deoxygenated blood back to the heart. Varicose veins are veins with dysfunctional one-way valves. The purpose of these valves is to prevent backflow of blood into the vein. When they do not function properly, these valves can allow blood to pool into the vein, leading to the development of a varicose vein. The buildup of pressure in this type of vein causes its characteristic twisted and ropey appearance. Varicose veins may or may not cause symptoms and tend to be blue or green.
How Laser Treatment Can Help
Laser therapy is a modern leg vein removal solution that enjoys a high rate of success. For the treatment, we employ the use of carefully controlled laser energy to ultimately cause the collapse of the problem vein. The blood that was once contained in the varicose vein will be taken up by surrounding blood vessels.
This treatment is performed in the comfort of our office and is designed to be quick and convenient. It is entirely non-surgical in nature.
Other Treatment Options
Laser treatment isn’t the only leg vein removal procedure we have available at our office. We also provide sclerotherapy, RFA treatment, and spider vein treatment, as well as other non-surgical treatment options.
