Say goodbye to varicose veins!

August 30, 2017

Are you suffering from unsightly varicose veins? Heavy, bulging, or ropey veins that make you feel…unattractive? Well, you’re not alone. Varicose veins affect half of people age 50 and older and up to 20% of adults…worldwide. Radiant Touch Laser Center can help stop the suffering.

How does it work?

Our Sciton Laser uses the optimum wavelength for fast and comfortable laser treatment. Absorption of laser light occurs in water within the vein and the heat generated contracts and collapses the vein wall. This can halt the formation of future varicosities and may result in complete vessel closure. With blood flow to the varicose vein interrupted, the pooling and bulging may begin to subside immediately as the blood circulation redirects itself to healthy veins.

Sciton Laser treatments can be performed on an outpatient basis in our office. Under local anesthesia, a small needle incision is made and the laser fiber is inserted into the incompetent vein. The laser energy is delivered through the fiber in a series of pulses and the heat it emits gently causes the vein to collapse painlessly. The vein is then reabsorbed by your body. Sciton Laser treatment takes about five to ten minutes and one leg can be treated in approximately one hour from start to finish.

What can I expect after treatment?

With Sciton Laser treatment you can expect minimal discomfort, bruising, or swelling. You can look forward to a quick recovery period and no wound care. Your leg will be wrapped in a compression bandage after the treatment and you can expect to be up and walking within 30 minutes. Most patients return to mild activities within a day and are able to participate in more strenuous activities within several days. Your physician may only require a few office visits after your treatment to monitor for full vein closure.
