LOS ANGELES, May 6 For women and men suffering from varicose veins, the problem is much more than simple vanity. Varicose veins pose serious health threats to people who have them, and are a major risk factor for blood clots and strokes. Because of this, dealing with varicose veins is not something that should be taken lightly.
In years past, varicose vein removal required a surgical procedure that involved cutting out the varicosity and closing off the ends of the blood vessel. This required anesthesia and patient downtime to recover, which made it harder for sufferers to find time and resources to do the operation. Luckily for people with varicose veins today, clinics like the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute in Thousand Oaks are offering new laser techniques that remove varicosities easily and painlessly.
The specialists at the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute have spent years performing and perfecting a special new laser technique that only requires local anesthesia and takes under an hour. Best of all, patients who receive treatment can walk out of the office right after their varicose veins are removed - resulting in no downtime, perfect for patients with busy work and home lives. The varicose vein removal procedure works by using a safe amount of laser energy to obliterate the varicose vein. The laser energy cuts off blood supply to the poorly functioning varicose veins, which enables them to close permanently and reroute the blood supply to nearby healthy veins. For patients, this means that the ugly, twisting bulges will dissipate starting from the day they receive varicose vein laser treatment. The bluish tinge from varicose veins will slowly fade over a period of months as well, for permanent removal of the dangerous veins.
For patients who are suffering from varicose veins, potentially the best news is that many insurance policies pay for varicose vein removal. Because of the health benefits of removing varicose veins, patients can have their poorly functioning blood vessels eliminated without having to pull out a credit card.
