Medical laser treatments for varicose and spider veins
Laser treatments are very effective, minimally-invasive, non-surgical outpatient treatments for varicose veins and spider veins. Heat from the laser is applied to the vein to create damage inside it and incite scarring. This scarring then seals the vein, causing blood flow to redirect to healthy veins while the damaged vein eventually is absorbed by the body. Over a period of one to two years, many patients will see the vein disappear completely.
Typically only varicose veins need medical treatment to prevent blood clots and eliminate problems such as burning, itching, and discomfort in the legs. Patients may wish to have spider veins treated for aesthetic reasons. MIVAS offers aesthetic solutions for spider veins.
Advantages and benefits of laser treatments include:
- Effective reduction in spider discoloration
- Same-day outpatient procedure
- Little downtime
