Varicose and spider veins can be unsightly and even uncomfortable. They impact your confidence in how you look and may cause symptoms like aching and throbbing that keep you up at night. Rather than undergo invasive vein surgery, you may be a good candidate for laser vein treatment at our office in Columbia, MD. Find out what this procedure is and what benefits it can offer you.

A Note About Problematic Veins

Varicose veins are veins that are thick and swollen and easily visible under the surface of your skin. They appear most often in the legs. They are red, blue, or purple. Spider veins are similar, only they affect the smaller capillaries.

You may not be able to prevent the development of varicose and/or spider veins in your legs. However, you do have a choice in how they are medically treated. When you want to avoid invasive and highly uncomfortable vein surgery, you may prefer to undergo laser vein treatment. This procedure has proven to be effective in easing or eliminating the appearance of varicose and spider veins in most patients.

What is Laser Vein Treatment?

Laser vein treatment involves the use of laser technology to reduce or eliminate your problematic veins. The professional performing the procedure monitors the laser in order to ensure that it targets the blood vessels in the vein. The vessels will then collapse, causing the veins to disappear within time.

This procedure is non-surgical and relatively fast. It is performed in the comfort of our office in Columbia, MD. You also may be able to get back to your normal routine the same day, as little to no downtime is involved after the treatment.

As with any medical procedure, laser vein treatment is not right for everyone. That’s why it’s so important to consult with our expert before deciding on your own whether or not this treatment can help you.
