Varicose veins are so frustrating. No matter what you do on your own, those bulging, blue veins won’t go away. You can walk every day, wear compression stockings on a regular basis and watch your diet. However, when these problematic veins appear, there is typically an underlying problem that won’t go away without help. Endovenous laser therapy could be the relatively simple solution that you are looking for to combat those raised, twisting veins that are causing you so much aggravation.
How Can Endovenous Laser Therapy Help You?
Endovenous laser therapy involves using a laser to focus on your problematic veins. When you have varicose veins, your veins are not doing what they should. There are valves contained in your veins. These valves are supposed to close once your blood rushes through your veins on the way to your heart. When you have varicose veins, the valves do not shut. The blood can flow back until it pools in one place. The blood will continue to pool and build up, making your vein start to bulge. Once you have varicose veins, they won’t go away without help. If you ignore them, they are only going to get worse. Endovenous laser therapy can help you to eliminate your varicose veins. Once you do, you can make lifestyle changes that will help you to steer clear of more varicose veins.
What Happens During Endovenous Laser Therapy?
Endovenous laser therapy is a minimally-invasive approach to help you to eliminate problematic veins. A tiny opening is made and a fiber is then inserted into the vein that requires treatment. Laser energy is applied through the vein. It is carefully controlled and will not cause damage to any other tissues. The laser energy generates heat, which causes your varicose vein to close. Blood will no longer pass through your problem vein. It will move on to other veins in your body that are performing the way that they should.
Eventually, your varicose vein will fade away. You can ensure that your procedure is successful and avoid more bouts with varicose veins by doing activities that strengthen your legs, eating a healthy diet that is low in salt and wearing compression stockings at night. The main goal is to promote healthy circulation so that your veins are strong enough to do their job.
