Treatment of varicose veins
Varicose veins are anomalies resulting from a condition of the veins in the legs that progresses chronically. Varicosity, alternatively called venous telangiectasia and venous angioma, is usually a source of aesthetic discomfort that, at first, affects the self-esteem of both men and women in their daily lives. If left untreated, these veins can cause dilatation of deep veins due to an overflow of the reverse blood flow. The clinic provides treatment for superficial varicosity by using a laser platform equipped with Xeo, featuring Cutera’s proprietary Nd:YAG technology.
The laser approach
Laser therapy is based on the principle of photocoagulation to seal small blood vessels. Between one and six sessions should be scheduled with intervals of four to six weeks, respecting all the contraindications for this type of treatment, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding and when taking Accutane. Significant results are visible after the fifth and sixth sessions.
Be aware that some bruising may occur following the procedure, but it usually fades within two weeks.
The patient should avoid hot baths, saunas and strong UV radiation for a few days following the treatment; however, it is advisable for the patient to return to their normal activities, with the exception of those that involve heavy lifting or carrying heavy loads.
