Varicose veins are twisting, swollen and enlarged veins that often appear blue or dark purple in color. This condition is caused by damaged or weak valves and vein walls, and increased blood pressure in the veins. It happens in the veins that are near the surface of the skin.
Varicose veins advances in a progressive manner and the stages are spider veins, varicose veins, leg edema, skin changes and leg ulcers. It wouldn’t be wise for you to wait till you reach the advanced stage to consult a healthcare practitioner or seek varicose veins treatment in Delhi from Laser 360 Clinic. Varicose veins can truly make your life debilitating as you van visually see the veins bulging out from your legs and you’ll also face difficulty while walking.
Luckily, you don’t have to suffer in silence anymore. Treatment for varicose veins is no longer painful or dreadful because there is a brand new treatment method – EVLT or endo venous laser treatment. This method treats varicose veins without any open surgery. The abnormal veins are heated by laser. The heat kills the walls of the veins and then, the dead tissues are readily absorbed by the body. The abnormal veins are destroyed and the chances of recurrence is zero.
Here’s what our laser surgery in NCR for varicose veins involves:
- First, we will perform an ultrasound and mark the veins that are to be treated with a pen.
- Second, we are going to try to get into your vein. For this, our laser experts will inject a tiny amount of local anesthesia into the skin over the vein. A needle will be inserted and a wire will be passed through the needle and up the vein. Then, the needle is going to be removed and a thin catheter will be passed over the wire and up the vein. Then, the wire will be removed.
- Third, we will be passing a laser fiber up the catheter and also inject a large amount of local anesthetic around the vein that is being treated. Then, the laser will be fired up and pulled down over the vein for about 5 minutes.
This procedure is undertaken with spinal anesthesia as well to keep things simple. Still, the patient may be discharged the same day.
The entire treatment lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes per leg. The treatment doesn’t involve any big cuts, and therefore, you won’t experience a lot of bleeding during the procedure. Once the laser treatment is complete, you may have some foam sclerotherapy or some avulsions undertaken. A compression stocking will be put on your leg(s).
After the procedure is over, you might be discharged the same day. You can rest for a day or two before getting back to the grind.
So, without further ado, get in touch with Laser 360 Clinic and avail the best varicose veins treatment in Delhi.
