why choose lasers to treat varicose veins


Varicose veins refer to varicose veins and dilation caused by blood stasis, weak wall of venous canal and other factors. Varicose veins can occur in many parts of the body. For example, ulcer is actually a varicose vein. 


Laser vein treatments improve the look, feel, or overall health of your veins, which stands a new option that you may not have considered.

The number of individuals applying for laser treatment goes up year after year. The facts point out that laser therapy is one of the most popular procedures of the 21st century due to its minimally invasive nature and short recovery period.


How Does laser vein treatment Work?

Vein clinic professionals use lasers, intensely localized light beams, in order to temporarily damage veins. In essence, the process “tricks” veins into forming a certain degree of scar tissue, which then closes the injured vein. A closed vein is not a functioning vein. After becoming scabbed over, damaged veins are unable to accumulate blood from various sources, resulting in the veins’ slow death over one to two years.

PIOON’s EVLT (Endovenous Laser Ablation) allows minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins through a small puncture to get quicker healing and a better outcome, without need for vein stripping and surgery. The higher water absorption SAT-M2(1470nm/ 1940nm) with radial fiber formed the ideal combination for Endovenous thermal ablation, the radial fiber provides 360 circular emission directly into the vessel wall bringing the optimal treatment and securing the precise surgery delivery.

During the EVLT treatment, the perforation caused by direct contact is less common with radial fibers than bare fibers, and because circumferential thermal damage occurs more efficiently, effective treatment is possible with lower power and less post-procedural.

  • No anesthesia

  • Rapid recovery

  • Smaller needles for less discomfort

  • Cost effective in comparison to other varicose vein treatments


SIDE EFFECTS

It should be aware that the laser treatment may cause side effects such as skin burns. Skin discoloration may also occur for patients with darker skin, but will usually fade in time. Finally, in rare cases, blood clots may form in surface or deep veins. If you notice these symptoms, do not be alarmed, they are natural physical reactions and will fade in time.
