Varicose veins are kind of like spider veins’ bigger, bulgier and more painful cousin. Varicose veins occur because the veins are not properly returning blood from the lower leg to the heart. In addition to their unsightly appearance, Varicose veins may cause other symptoms like burning, itching, pressure and aching that gets worse throughout the day. In more severe cases, patients with varicose veins may experience bleeding or ulceration of the skin.
Varicose Vein Treatment is achieved using Endovenous Laser Therapy, or EVLT. This laser treatment is quick and only minimally invasive and works as the laser energy closes the vein so that blood cannot flow through it and the blood will instead divert to the normal, healthy veins in the leg. If there are any superficial, bulging veins left after the EVLT a micro phlebectomy may be performed to remove the offending veins.
