Seeking treatment for your varicose veins can prevent a range of further medical problems and boost your self-image. There are several procedures that can help you rid your legs and feet of varicose veins. The technologically advanced method of endovenous laser treatment offers quickly noticeable results with minimal side effects and discomfort.
- How Treatment Works
VenaCure EVLT treatment uses a small incision to insert a catheter that implants a laser fiber to produce a high energy beam which seals off the vein. Blood flow is rerouted in the body to surrounding healthy veins. The procedure only takes about an hour and it leaves virtually no scarring. The incision used is so small that no stiches or sutures are needed. Local anesthetic is used during the procedure so that you feel no pain or discomfort while you remain awake and aware.
- VenaCure EVLT Recovery
The side effects of this treatment are minimal and usually eased by the use of over-the-counter medication, such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol. Patients may experience bruising and tenderness, which are to be expected with any varicose vein treatment. There may also be a pulling sensation around the treated area for about a week after treatment. This is a normal symptom that signifies that the treatment has worked to destroy the vein. Within three weeks of the procedure, all side effects and varicose vein symptoms should subside. The procedure is 98% effective and no other treatment offers this rate of success.
