With the many Non Surgery Varicose Vein Treatments around today, nobody needs to be confined to a life of long pants and embarrassment. One of the most common reasons people delay having their varicose veins treated is the mistaken belief that painful surgery, requiring substantial time for recuperation, is the only solution. That may have been the case years ago, but now there are several varicose vein treatments available that are effective, relatively simple, and can have you back on your feet quickly with minimal discomfort.
Varicose Vein Treatments
Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is the most advanced varicose vein treatment available. Only local anaesthetic is required and treatment typically is completed in under two hours. Guided by an ultrasound device, a laser fibre is inserted into the abnormal vein. The laser is activated and the fibre is drawn the length of the vein, sealing it cleanly and safely.
EVLT patients enjoy a 90% success rate for 3-5 years following treatment.
Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS) is another advanced varicose vein treatment designed to minimise discomfort and down time. The abnormal vein is injected with a cleansing solution and an ultrasound device is used to focus and intensify the reaction. The vein collapses and is absorbed naturally into the body. Treatment time is typically an hour or less, best results may require multiple treatments.
Surgery is not required to enjoy healthier, more attractive legs without varicose veins. There are additional options, based on diagnosis, that can eliminate varicose veins without painful and debilitating surgery.
