Varicose Veins Laser Surgery Treatment
Varicose veins are twisted and bulgy veins that protrude on the surface of the skin. Spider veins are similar, but less obvious. These blue and red tattoo like lines on the skin, as well as the varicose veins are commonly found in the legs and occur primarily due to enlarged and weakened vein walls and faulty valves. This leads to a painful and problematic condition that sometimes necessitates spider/varicose vein treatment. Vascular defects and poor blood circulation are also important reasons for these vein disorders.
Apart from vascular defects, some of the other causes for varicose/spider veins are heredity, obesity, prolonged standing, and lifestyle changes. These are typical reasons requiring varicose vein treatment, of the upwardly mobile residing in metros like Mumbai or Delhi who spend a lot of standing hours commuting, added to a fast paced life, and no time for exercises.

Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment
Expert vascular doctors can easily diagnose them, and offer specialized treatment with modern methods. Non-surgical methods of Varicose vein/spider vein treatments are largely popular not only in big cities like Mumbai, but in all other cities also. Two such successful non-surgical procedures are Endovenous Laser Surgery for Varicose Veins (EVLT Varicose Veins) and Sclerotherapy. Dr. Saurabh Joshi, the principal consultant of Vein Center and a vascular interventional radiologist provides all types of minimally invasive laser treatments to remove varicose veins in legs.
EVLT Varicose Veins
Varicose vein laser surgery involves applying a highly concentrated beam of light (laser) to the inner lining of vein with extreme precision, not affecting the surrounding tissue. The laser energy heats the inner lining of the swollen varicose veins in leg, causing it to shrink and collapse. The body automatically and safely reroutes the blood through other healthy veins.
Like all other successful laser treatments, EVLT Varicose vein treatment is also very successful as well as safe. EVLT (laser) varicose vein treatment has a 98% initial success rate with excellent long term results.
Injection sclerotherapy is another minimally invasive procedure that is successful in all spider vein treatment as well as some varicose veins. An extremely fine needle is injected in the vein with sclerosing foam that causes the vein to scar and close. The blood is routed to healthier veins and the injected veins shrink away.
Apart from these, other vascular treatments are also conducted as day care procedures at the Vein Center, the super speciality clinic for varicose vein treatment in Mumbai.
