What is a Varicose Veins?
In normal cases, blood veins transfer the blood towards the heart, but in varicose vein, the faulty valves in the vein allow blood to flow in the wrong direction or pool at a place.
This phenomenon weakens and swollen the veins. These veins are easily identifiable as they appear dark blue and stick out of skin and are found on legs or stomach of a person. These impaired veins form together a lump and is often called as varicose veins.
How to identify the primary symptoms of Varicose Veins?
Swollen ankles, aching legs, heaviness in the legs after standing for even shorter span are the primary symptoms of the varicose veins.
Female (25%) are more prone to the varicose veins than male (15%).
What are the various causes of Varicose Veins?
No exercises, sitting for longer hours, activities that bring pressure on the stomach, pregnancy, and menopause are some of the causes. Also an individual who has to spend a long time standing at work may have a higher chance of varicose veins. In some cases it has been a genetic problem as well.
Other than varicose veins, what more problems can impure blood veins carry?
Inflammation of blood veins is observed through reddishness on legs, swelling around the blood veins, pains in the calf. This condition is medically referred as Phlebitis.
Spider veins are cluster of tiny blood vessels that are seen close to the surface of the skin. The swollen blood veins are usually painless but can be a symptom of varicose veins
When the blood vessels are unable to carry the impure blood towards heart, that blood is stored in veins. These veins don’t get necessary nutrition and oxygen and hence become dead. These veins are responsible for the injury occurring on the skin. Person suffering from these kinds of ulcers already have a history of varicose veins.
When the blood vessels stop working appropriately they fail to carry the impure blood towards heart, hence the excess blood gets stored and blood clots are formed. These blood clots cause the swelling in the body part and blood vessels are unable to carry their functions properly. Hence a patient suffering from thrombosis feels severe pain and heaviness in the legs. If your veins start paining it is necessary to consult the doctor immediately as this clot may get carried towards heart and result into heart attack.
What is Laser Treatment?
A laser is a strong beam of light. A highly energized strong beam of light is focused on the affected area to cut/destroy/burn the damaged tissues to get the expected result and this is known as Laser treatment.
Laser Treatment only kills the damaged cells and does not cause any harm to the healthy and fine tissues, due to this advantage, laser treatment is popular and preferred technique ranging from eye treatments to skin treatments. Along with its unique qualities, highly qualified and specialized doctors have also made laser treatment easier, pain less and efficient than traditional methods of surgery.
Advanced laser treatment for varicose veins:
In this treatment, a thin fiber thread is passed in to the varicose vein, and then laser of required and predefined frequency is released on the affected varicose vein. Once the laser passes through the vein, it stops working and the vein is closed/ relieved permanently.
This procedure is of 45-60 minutes only and is performed under local anesthesia. A patient is ready to perform his normal routine work in very less time after the surgery.
Usually varicose veins are the veins closer to the skin and perform only 5 % of the blood circulation. Hence closing them or relieving them doesn’t harm the legs.
Patients have shown 95% success rate when operated by highly trained experts in the field of laser treatment. After the treatment, usually the problem of varicose never occurs in the same vein.
