Simple treatment with Laser
Simple laser vein treatment takes place outside the skin. It can treat spider veins and varicose veins just below the surface of the skin. More than one laser session is normally needed. As prescribed by our expert, it is scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks. If you have poor blood circulation that feeds these tiny veins, the larger ' feeder' vein must first be treated with surgery, radiofrequency or endovenous laser treatment or sclerotherapy.
Endovenous treatment with laser
Endovenous laser treatment may treat the legs with larger varicose veins. A laser fiber is transmitted into the vein by a thin tube (catheter). The doctor looks at the vein on a duplex ultrasound screen while doing so. A laser is less painful than vein ligation and stripping, and the recovery time is shorter. For laser treatment, only a local anesthetic or a light sedative is required. General anesthesia is used to sleep you for ligation and stripping.
What to expect after treatment?

You wear compression socks for 1 week or more after endovenous laser treatment. Our expert will use duplex ultrasound to ensure the vein is closed to follow up.
