Varicose Vein Laser Treatment is a form of laser treatment that involves the use of high-intensive laser light to treat varicose veins lying just under the surface of your skin. Arteries in your heart carry blood to the rest of your body, which are returned back to the heart to enable healthy and uninterrupted blood circulation. For the blood to return to the heart, your leg veins are tasked to work against gravity. Muscle contraction in lower legs helps the blood to return to the heart. But with age, these muscles tend to lose their elasticity and fail to work actively to help the blood return to the heart. Thus age factor is one of the most common causes of varicose veins. Additionally, pregnant women do also develop varicose veins in legs because during pregnancy the volume of blood increases but the flow of blood from your legs to the heart decreases.
In laser vein treatment, the laser heat given on the outer surface of your skin (simple laser treatment) penetrates your skin and goes down to damage the vein that leads to the formation of scar tissues. The scar tissue closes the vein as a result of which it loses its source of blood supply and eventually dies off and disappear after a couple of years. There are two types of laser vein treatment: simple laser treatment and endovenous laser treatment. While the simple form of treatment is used to treat spider veins and small varicose veins, the endovenous form is usually practised by cosmetologists to close off larger varicose veins in legs instead of using leg veins surgery to get them removed. Time taken for the treatment is not more than 5 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the number of veins to be treated, and cost usually ranges from $1,500 to $3,000 for vein stripping or simple laser treatment and $600 to $3,000 for endovenous treatment.
