How to treat varicose veins?

Varicose veins are bulging, twisting, blue or purplish veins that often press against the surface of the skin. They’re caused by insufficient blood flow due to weak or damaged valves in the veins. If the veins in your legs cannot effectively pump blood up to your heart, the blood will pool in the legs. This causes the veins to stretch and swell.Symptoms of varicose veins include an achy or heavy feeling in the legs, itching, swelling, skin discoloration, and pain after sitting or standing for extended periods of time.


In addition to being painful and unsightly, varicose veins can also be dangerous to your health. Untreated veins can burst and cause bleeding or painful ulcers. In some cases, varicose veins may contribute to the development of blood clots. These clots could travel to your heart, causing serious health complications.


The best way to avoid potential health risks is to treat varicose veins with a procedure like endovenous laser treatment or EVLT. EVLT is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that unblocks perforating veins, the larger veins that carry blood from the superficial veins to the deep veins.During EVLT, your vein treatment specialist will use a tiny catheter to apply direct heat to the damaged vein, which causes it to collapse. After some time, the body absorbs the treated vein and blood is redirected to surrounding healthy veins. The best part? Your legs will look and feel better right away.


The risks of endovenous laser therapy are minimal. After the procedure, you may experience minor pain directly over the vein and slight bruising or bleeding that should go away within two weeks. Pioon’s S1 pro with 1470nm 12W will help you away this concern.
