Millions of Americans suffer from varicose veins, leg veins , and spider veins, but fortunately effective laser treatments are available to relieve these unsightly and painful conditions. Laser vein removal at the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute is a popular means of treatment for sufferers of varicose and spider veins throughout Los Angeles.
The benefits of laser vein removal are that it’s minimally invasive and virtually pain free. While traditional vein stripping in the past was painful and required the patient to be bedridden for a number of days, laser vein removal can typically be carried out in less than an hour, and the patient can do everyday activities immediately after the treatment.
The treatment works by a powerful pulsating laser exposed to the culprit vein through a subcutaneous needle catheter. After a month or so, the varicose veins shrivel up and are re-absorbed into the body, and blood flow is redirected to healthier veins in the body. This procedure does not cause any damage whatsoever to the surrounding tissue. If you want to find out if laser vein removal is right for you, please call and schedule a consultation at the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute.
