Laser Vein Treatments for Varicose Veins & Spider Veins
Laser vein treatments are becoming extremely popular in NSW, as large varicose vein treatment because the veins are permanently destroyed. As with other treatments, the procedure is long-lasting and is usually permanent. These veins can regenerate, making more treatments necessary. This will not happen with a laser varicose vein treatment.
These treatments work best for very large veins that are straight as the needle and laser must be able to pass into the vein a short way.
For those large varicose veins that also include spider veins, a treatment plan with two different treatments will be used. The laser treatment will handle the large veins and a sclerotherapy treatment will remove the smaller veins. These vein treatments are usually spread out over two days. The patient typically receives laser treatment on the first day and then sclerotherapy treatment on the next visit or in the near future.
These laser vein treatments have a 98 percent closure rate and almost every patient is satisfied with their results. One reason patients prefer this treatment is that there is no downtime. Patients can go back to work after the treatment. There is little to no pain or bruising. Another reason patients like this treatment type is that there is no sedation, and they are able to walk easily after the treatment. They can even leave immediately after treatment. (Some treatments require the patient to wait for some time before being able to leave due to anaesthetic or pain). The combination of ease and effectiveness is why laser vein treatments at Crows Nest Cosmetic and Vein in NSW are such a great option for many people suffering from varicose veins and/or spider veins.
