Are those bulging varicose veins on your legs making you uncomfortable? Are sore, aching feet keeping you up at night? If your varicose veins are making you uncomfortable, you may have heard that you need to get them fixed through laser treatment. Before you rush to find out all about varicose vein laser treatment and its cost, you should be familiar with the condition itself. Read on to know more about varicose veins!

Symptoms associated with varicose veins

How do you know if you actually have varicose veins? For starters, you may have noticed twisting, bulging rope like structures on your legs – these are usually varicose veins. You may also have certain symptoms, which you may not have connected with the veins. Some of these symptoms are:

  • A feeling of heaviness in the legs, and aching, sore feet, which gets worse after sitting or standing for long periods of time.
  • Sudden leg cramps that make you want to keep shaking your legs (restless legs)
  • Generalized fatigue

Why do you experience these symptoms when you have varicose veins? To understand this, you need to know why varicose veins form in the first place.

The reason you get varicose veins

Varicose veins by themselves are not a disease – they are just a sign of a more complex condition called chronic venous insufficiency (CVS). CVS primarily affects the main veins of the leg, called the saphenous veins. The saphenous veins carry blood from the legs back to the heart, against gravity. These veins have small valves that help keep the blood flowing in the right direction, and prevent back-flow of blood. As the body ages, however, some of these valves can become dysfunctional, which allows blood flowing through the saphenous veins to fall back and collect in the legs. As blood pools, the pressure in the veins rises, and forces its way into new veins. These new veins may be large and tortuous (we call these varicose veins), or they may be small, purplish streaks (these are spider veins). So if you want to cure varicose veins in your legs, you need to shut down the saphenous veins. This will allow blood to be re-routed to the heart through healthier veins, and decrease the pressure in the veins.

What are my options for varicose vein removal treatment?

Earlier, vein removal was done by a method called vein stripping, which involved removing the entire diseased vein from the body. Today, minimally invasive treatment allows us to shut down the saphenous veins just by sealing them off. The non-functioning veins shrivel with time and eventually get absorbed into the body, so physical removal becomes unnecessary. Minimally invasive procedures are quick and painless unlike surgical removal, and just as effective.

Radiofrequency ablation is the most popular and effective method for sealing off defective veins. In this method, the vein doctor numbs your skin with anesthetic and makes a tiny cut over the saphenous vein. A radiofrequency catheter is inserted throughout the length of the vein. hat delivered through the catheter seals the vein off.

Is laser ablation vein treatment the best option?

While EVLA is as effective as RFA, the intensity of laser energy used in EVLA can cause more discomfort during the procedure. Both treatments are comparable in terms of cost, which can be a few thousand dollars. Another advanced treatment option exists, which is more comfortable than either of these techniques – the varicose vein removal injection.

So…. What is varicose vein removal injection?

VenaSeal, or the varicose vein injection, is the most advanced varicose vein treatment available today. Its main advantage over RFA and EVLA is that there is no need for a numbing injection, or a skin incision. Medical grade glue is directly injected into the defective vein. The glue blocks up the vein, and causes it to harden and shrink over time.

RFA and EVLA are usually covered by insurance. VenaSeal a new technique, and may not be covered by all insurance plans.

Reading laser vein treatment reviews online can be confusing, with differing opinions. Our experts take you through the procedures involved in laser vein treatment – and whether you can find other alternatives.

How do I decide which varicose vein treatment option is right for me?

There is a lot to consider while choosing the best treatment option for your varicose veins – including the size and number of defective veins, your overall health, and even the kind of insurance plan you have! This is a decision that you must make after a thorough discussion with a vein specialist. Your vein specialist will examine your veins and perform an ultrasound to determine the degree of venous insufficiency. Based on the findings, your doctor should be able to offer you customized treatment options.
