The varicose vein is a condition in which abnormally enlarged, dilated and twisted veins begin to develop near the skin surface. They can appear anywhere on the body but are most commonly found on the legs. Varicose veins appear as a lump of skin and do not cause any health risk. However, they do cause cosmetic and physical discomfort. This is the reason that people prefer to get them removed. For this purpose, varicose veins treatment in Dubai has been introduced.

Laser Varicose Vein Removal
The laser is considered to be the safest way of treating swollen varicose veins. In laser treatment, there are further two procedures to remove the varicose veins which comprise of simple laser treatment and Endovenous laser treatment (ELT).
Simple Laser Treatment
A simple laser technique is performed outside the skin in which a laser beam sends bursts of light energy at the affected area and causes the varicose veins to disappear. It does not involve any surgery or incisions and is beneficial to treat small varicose veins. The recovery period for this treatment is very short.
Endovenous Laser Treatment
On the other hand, endovenous laser treatment is a minimally invasive technique in which a catheter with a laser fiber is inserted into the veins. The laser heats up the vein as the catheter is retracted slowly which results in the closure of the vein. Since the varicose veins are already not performing their function so their closure does not cause any harm. This treatment procedure is useful for larger varicose veins in legs.
