  • Varicose Veins

Varicose veins present as enlarged and visibly twisted veins beneath the skin, varying in color from blue to dark purple, depending on their severity. Factors such as prolonged periods of sitting, tight clothing, and obesity often contribute to their development. These veins, also referred to as varicosities or spider veins, may be primarily cosmetic for some individuals but can result in significant pain and discomfort, particularly during walking or extended periods of sitting. Varicose veins are more commonly observed in older women, with nearly double the number of cases compared to men.

Preventing Varicose Veins:

  • Avoid prolonged standing
  • Use compression stockings
  • Refrain from smoking
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Lead a wholesome lifestyle
  • Elevate legs while seated to encourage blood circulation

Varicose Veins Treatment:

Commonly, varicose veins can be effectively treated using methods such as:

  • Ligation and stripping
  • Sclerotherapy
  • Laser varicose veins surgery (simple and endovenous)
  • Radiofrequency treatment
  • Endothermal ablation
  • Ambulatory phlebectomy

Our varicose veins doctors at Pilotheal often recommend and perform laser treatment, which is a safe and cost-effective option associated with minimal risks, complications, and bleeding.

There are two main types of laser surgeries:

Simple Laser Treatment: This approach is suitable for treating small varicose veins and is performed externally. It typically requires multiple sessions spaced 6 to 12 weeks apart. During this treatment, laser heat is used to damage the vein, leading to the formation of scar tissue that obstructs blood flow, ultimately causing the vein to fade away.

Endovenous Laser Treatment: Specifically designed for addressing large varicose veins in the legs, this procedure involves numbing the surgical area and inserting a catheter with a laser fiber into the affected vein. The laser generates heat, which closes and shrinks the vein. After completion, incisions are sealed with dressings.
