Laser Vein Ablation

It is estimated that 25% women and 15% of men worldwide have varicose veins. In the United States alone, more than half the adults suffer from painful and unsightly venous disease. The new minimally-invasive laser treatment for varicose veins is a safe and effective treatment performed in-office, with excellent results.

We perform laser vein ablation as an outpatient procedure in our office. Your veins carry blood back to your heart. In your leg, this means blood has to flow against gravity. That is why these veins have one-way valves to prevent the blood from backfilling. Over time with age, pregnancy, obesity and other factors mentioned these valves can fail to close tightly. This allows blood to pool and causes the bulging and twisting associated with varicose veins.

Laser treatment fixes this problem at the source by delivering just the right wavelength of laser energy to just the right area, causing the vein to close. In response, your body routes the blood to other healthy veins.

The treatment takes about 45 minutes and uses local anesthesia. You are able to walk after your treatment. You are able to immediately return to normal activities. Recovery is rapid, with no scarring and minimal post-operative pain. Visual results can be immediate.
