We Offer Laser Treatments for Your Veins

Enlarged, twisted, and swollen veins beneath the skin, commonly called varicose veins, could cause aches, pains, and even embarrassment. Basically, they form due to the weakening of the walls and valves in the veins. These cause the blood pooling and stretching of the veins, causing the veins to be pronounced and protrude through your skin.

While varicose veins typically start out as a cosmetic flaw, they might in time, lead to complications like ulcers, bleeding, poor circulation, and phlebitis. Here at Advanced Vascular Associates in our Sparta, Pompton Plains, Teaneck, and Morristown, NJ, offices, we offer various varicose vein solutions like laser vein treatment, which we’ll focus on below.

How Laser Vein Treatment Works

The laser is basically a focused light beam that can be used for treating many conditions, including varicose veins. In a nutshell, it works by damaging the vein through laser heat, resulting in the formation of scar tissue that will close off the vein. Once closed off, the vein will lose its blood source and eventually die and then disappear after one to two years.

Simple Laser Vein Treatment

This is performed on the skin’s outer surface and is commonly used for treating tiny, shallow varicose veins and spider veins. This laser treatment requires multiple sessions that will be scheduled six to 12 weeks apart. However, if the bigger feeder vein that’s feeding the smaller veins have poor circulation, the feeder vein might be first treated with sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, or surgery.

Endovenous Laser Vein Treatment

This is utilized for treating bigger varicose veins located in the legs. During this laser vein treatment procedure in our Morristown, NJ, Sparta, NJ, Pompton Plains, NJ, or Teaneck, NJ, location, a laser fiber will be inserted via a catheter and into the varicose vein. This laser procedure is less painful and invasive than vein stripping and ligation. The recovery time is likewise shorter and you’ll only need a light sedative or local anesthesia for the procedure.

In case endovenous laser vein treatment doesn’t close off the problematic vein, you’ll require another session or some other treatment as deemed fit by your doctor. This extra treatment might be sclerotherapy or vein surgery. Remember, even if varicose veins might seem like a cosmetic issue, especially if they’re not causing pain, they will result in health complications if not treated promptly. So early diagnosis and treatment are vital.
