Though our bodies change with age, we don’t have to accept the changes sitting down. Instead, there are options that can help restore confidence, boost self-esteem, and improve general mood. One of these is laser vein removal.
This non-surgical procedure uses lasers and highly-concentrated light to remove spider and varicose veins. There are no remedies or medications that can “cure” visible veins. They won’t fade or go away on their own, and in fact only get worse over time. This means putting off treatment only leads to further deterioration.
Thankfully, a qualified surgeon can promptly address your concerns, and help you make a plan to reclaim your life from the pain, discomfort, and mood-draining emotions associated with visible veins.
Here’s how laser vein removal can improve your quality of life:
Eliminates Damaged Veins
Many people think vein removal is done purely for aesthetic reasons, however there are concrete health benefits associated with this procedure.
Damaged veins can cause pain, swelling, and cramps, and leg heaviness. Since using legs is essential to walking and a myriad of other activities, discomfort and/or immobility can make it impossible to perform even the most basic of tasks.
Rather than just concealing damaged veins, this non-invasive option targets veins to the point that they collapse and are actually absorbed by the body. This means the same veins will not return.
Improves Overall Health
In many cases, you may not even be aware that veins are damaged. They aren’t always immediately visible. Standing or sitting for extended periods of time increases pressure on veins in the legs, which often results in swelling. So, what might seem like “normal” symptoms of getting older could actually be a sign of larger troubles.
Along with pain reduction or even elimination, laser vein removal also decreases the possibility of restless leg syndrome, which helps you get a better night’s sleep. As you know, quality sleep is important to many aspects of life. You’ll be more alert, will perform better at work, and will have more time to spend making memories with friends and family.
That’s where the other benefits come in. Most patients are back in their favorite outfits — including shorts and dresses — within a week of treatment. This directly contributes to heightened self-confidence and general body image satisfaction.
Safe, Timely, and Effective
The non-surgical nature of this procedure means there are no needles, no incisions, and virtually no downtime. Laser vein removal is performed entirely with lasers and highly-concentrated light. In most cases, anesthesia or sedation is not necessary.
In addition, most patients experience only minimal discomfort following the procedure. Any redness or swelling typically goes away within a few days. This means you can be back in your favorite clothes, doing your favorite activities within a week.
Laser vein removal is usually completed in less than an hour — sometimes in as little time as 20 minutes! The number of sessions needed varies by type, size, and number of veins to be treated. Your surgeon will discuss with you the best options for your specific needs. During this time, it’s important to provide thorough and accurate information such as prior pain, previous surgical procedures, medical history, and more.
