Laser technology is flexible and used in various medical and beauty treatments. Many doctors use laser technology to treat a wide range of conditions because it works well and lasts for a long time.
One place where laser technology works well is in treating veins. With the help of laser technology, you can reduce or even eliminate unsightly veins and improve your blood flow.
But while there are many treatments, what could be the most effective ones? Check out this post and see the best treatments for your vein issues here at Montville MedSpa & Pain Center.
Laser Treatment for Veins
Vein treatments and surgery are ways to get rid of varicose veins. It is a procedure that uses heat from a laser. Varicose veins are swollen veins that stick out and are usually found on the thighs or calves.
Usually, the procedure happens as a laser machine sends out a thin beam of light-based radiation. Most laser surgery closes the vein and makes it smaller, and scar tissue forms inside the vessel.
This closes the vein. The blood then goes through other veins close by. At the Montville MedSpa & Pain Center, we use the most up-to-date technology to treat different vein problems with little to no pain or downtime.
Why Consider Vein Treatments?
If your varicose veins (or veins in general) hurt, are red and swollen, or make you feel sick, your doctor may suggest laser surgery (inflamed). If the skin over your varicose veins is itchy, you may also be told to get laser surgery.
Sclerotherapy is a medical treatment for spider and varicose veins, usually on the legs. Your provider will use a needle to put a unique solution into your spider or varicose veins.
This chemical solution irritates the lining of your blood vessels, which causes the lining to grow, stick together, and scar. This makes your vein look and feels better by closing it off.
Who’s Ideal For Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy might help people with a spider or varicose veins, but not everyone needs it. You are not the ideal candidate if:
- Have a deep vein thrombosis or a superficial vein thrombosis that is still going on (blood clot).
- Are pregnant. Before you can get sclerotherapy, you’ll have to wait at least three months after giving birth.
- Breastfeeding (chestfeeding) (chestfeeding).
- I was too sick to get out of bed.
- Even if you take birth control pills, you can still get sclerotherapy.
You could get sclerotherapy if you’ve ever had a blood clot. This depends on what caused the clot and how bad it was.
Most of the time, your doctor will only use sclerotherapy on a vein that you might need for future surgery, like the saphenous vein for coronary artery bypass graft surgery (unless that vein is already unusable).
You should also know that you will see results later. You won’t look like a leg model when you leave your provider’s office.
Radiofrequency ablation is a treatment for varicose veins that don’t require much surgery.
(Ablation means that a doctor uses heat to damage tissue, which leads to scar tissue formation. The vein is closed by this scar tissue.)
Instead of laser energy, this method uses radiofrequency energy to heat up and damage the wall of a vein. This usually stops a leg vein from getting worse.
The heat destroys the vein, but for the procedure to work, the catheter has to touch the vein wall directly. The vein must be wrapped around the catheter as tightly as possible.
The vein is compressed with tumescent anesthesia and external pressure, and the leg is raised to cause the vein to collapse. An electrical feedback system built into the fiber can change how energy is delivered to keep the temperature constant.
Montville MedSpa & Pain Center treats painful and unsightly varicose veins with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). RFA is a less invasive way to eliminate abnormal veins, reroute blood flow to healthy veins, and ease vein pain.
In the past, radio-frequency or endovenous laser ablation was used to treat varicose tributary veins of the great saphenous vein. Varithena® is a new non-thermal, non-tumescent ablation method that doesn’t use heat.
Varithena is a prescription medicine used to treat varicose veins with the great saphenous vein (GSV) and other veins in the GSV system of the leg.
Varithena helps with symptoms and the look of varicose veins related to or caused by varicose veins. The good news is that we treat superficial venous reflux disease symptoms at Montville MedSpa & Pain Center with Varithena®.
This treatment is excellent for improving thermal treatments and getting to veins that other therapies can’t reach.
The last treatment you can avail of here at Montville MedSpa & Pain Center is the VenaSeal. This treatment helps you get rid of your varicose veins quickly and effectively.
This minimally invasive outpatient procedure is less painful and takes less time to heal. VenaSeal uses a medical glue to close veins that aren’t working right. This particular glue holds the vein’s walls together.
This stops the blood flow and sends it to healthy veins. Over time, your body will get rid of the veins that aren’t being used. Since varicose veins don’t always appear on the skin’s surface, we’ll use ultrasound to map the veins that need treatment and guide the procedure.
VenaSeal is another way to treat vascular veins at Montville MedSpa. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses heat to close the vein. Still, VenaSeal uses a safe and strong medical adhesive to close off the veins that need to be completed. The blood must go through only healthy vessels by closing off the vein.
