Varicose veins are dysfunctional blood vessels that may or may not cause symptoms in the sufferer. Regardless of whether they cause symptoms are not, the person who is affected by them usually wants to undergo some type of leg vein removal procedure. If you are considering such a procedure, you will need some information to help you make the best choice for your needs.
Most people who are looking for leg vein removal treatments are dealing with varicose veins. These blood vessels tend to occur in people who are overweight or older, although other people get them too. A vein is a type of blood vessel responsible for transporting deoxygenated blood back to the heart. Varicose veins are veins with dysfunctional one-way valves. The purpose of these valves is to prevent backflow of blood into the vein. When they do not function properly, these valves can allow blood to pool into the vein, leading to the development of a varicose vein. The buildup of pressure in this type of vein causes its characteristic twisted and ropey appearance. Varicose veins may or may not cause symptoms and tend to be blue or green in color.
Laser therapy is a modern leg vein removal solution that enjoys a high rate of success. For the treatment, we employ a laser to transmit thermal energy into vein walls, causing the collapse of the problem vein. The blood that was once contained in the varicose vein will be taken up by surrounding blood vessels. After your procedure, you will be encouraged to walk some on a daily basis. This helps with blood circulation for your recovery. Avoid strenuous physical activity or exercise like Pilates, weightlifting, or vigorous aerobic exercise as you recover.
