Varicose veins are among those conditions that are commonly treated with the use of lasers. They form when the blood quits flowing properly through the vessels. Instead, it begins to back up inside the veins. The pressure that this places against the walls will cause the vessels to expand and become varicose. When this happens, they usually become visible through the skin and are blue. As if this did not create enough of an appearance issue, they frequently bulge out from the skin in ways that resemble small pieces of rope. The cosmetic impact can be enough to cause many individuals to lose some of their self-esteem. If you are facing a situation like this, you should speak with our professionals about your treatment options.
As if the appearance problems caused by varicose veins were not enough, the condition can produce uncomfortable symptoms also. Many people experience swelling of the legs, especially late in the day. Those who stand a lot or remain seated in a stationary posture for extended periods of time are more likely to experience symptoms. Varicose veins can cause aching and a feeling of heaviness in the legs also. Many people experience numbness and tingling as well.
Varicose veins can put you at a higher risk for developing blood clots. They can be near the surface or in deeper tissue. Clots that are in the veins that are located deeper in the legs are known as deep vein thrombosis. They are more likely to break free and travel to the heart or lungs. This can result in serious health issues. It is one more reason to consider laser vein treatment if you have varicose veins.
Spider veins are like varicose veins. The biggest difference in the two conditions is the size of the affected vessels. Spider veins form in the capillaries. They can also form on the face and chest, as well as the legs, whereas varicose veins are typically limited to the legs. Unlike varicose veins, however, spider veins rarely produce symptoms or create health risks. Instead, their impact is usually one of an aesthetic nature only. This does not mean their presence should be taken lightly, however. The negative impact on the appearance is enough of a reason for many people to seek treatment.
Laser vein treatment works by directing the laser energy at the targeted veins. The heat from the laser is what makes the treatment effective, because it safely destroys the problem veins.
