Vascular Laser Therapy

Types of Vascular Laser Therapy

1. Simple Laser Treatment
  • It is conducted outside of your skin that can heal spider veins and tiny varicose veins beneath the skin’s surface. Generally, more than one laser session is needed.
  •  Your doctor will schedule that type of treatment usually every 6 to 12 weeks.
  •  Based on the research, this type of laser treatment has become quite safe and effective for more than 20 years. 

2. Endovenous Laser Treatment
  • It can cure larger varicose veins in the legs.
  • The laser fiber is transmitted through a thin tube (catheter) into the vein, at the same time, the doctor will watch the vein on a duplex ultrasound screen.
  • This laser treatment closes veins about 94 out of 100 times.
  •  You will need a second treatment, if this treatment doesn’t close a vein.

Risks of Vascular Laser Therapy
  •        Skin coloring changes
  •       Skin burns
  •        Small or large blood clotting in the vein (less likely than after vein stripping surgery).
  •       Less risks it will happen, if your doctor has more experiences with laser. Discuss this matter with your doctor before starting the procedure.

After Treatment
  • Regularly after simple laser treatment, you can walk and recovery is short.
  • You can go back to your normal daily schedule
  • You should wear compression stockings for 1 week or more after endovenous laser treatment.
  • To ensure the vein is closed, your doctor will use duplex ultrasound.
