Laser Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose veins are a condition in which abnormally enlarged, dilated, and twisted veins begin to develop near the skin’s 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 risks. 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.

Common Symptoms

Normally, varicose veins do not produce any symptoms. Still, there are some signs that you can see if you have varicose veins. These signs include;

  • Swollen legs
  • Itching around veins
  • Formation of ulcers
  • Change in skin color
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Burning sensations
  • Heaviness in legs

Possible Causes

The major cause of varicose veins is damage to the vein valves that cause the blood to accumulate in the veins. Ultimately the veins cease to function properly. However, there are some other factors as well that result in the development of this condition. These factors include;

  • Prolonged standing
  • Obesity
  • Weight gain
  • Age-related factors
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Family history of varicose veins

Treatments Options

There are various surgical, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment options for varicose veins removal in Dubai. Some non-surgical ways to treat varicose veins include;

  • Avoid prolonged standing
  • Avoid wearing tight clothes
  • Wear compression stockings
  • Lose weight and exercise regularly

However, laser treatment is the most popular and effective treatment among all methods.

Laser Varicose Vein Removal

The laser is considered to be the safest way of treating swollen varicose veins in Dubai. In laser treatment, there are further two procedures to remove the varicose veins which include 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 the legs.

Pre-treatment Instructions

To get the best results from the laser treatment for varicose veins in Dubai, it is necessary to prepare well for the procedure. Follow the instructions mentioned below to prepare for the treatment.

  • Avoid taking any blood-thinning medications like aspirin two weeks before the treatment.
  • Do not consume Cod Liver Oil and Vitamin E supplements ten to fifteen days before the treatment.
  • Shave and clean the treatment area before getting the procedure.

Post-treatment Instructions

You can get the desired results from the treatment if you follow the post-treatment instructions strictly. Some major instructions include;

  • Apply prescribed topical ointments and take pain management medicines.
  • Avoid picking at the scab or crust.
  • Do not rub or massage the treated area.
  • Do not apply any skincare product that contains retinoids.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight for almost 6 weeks.
