Patients seeking treatment for varicose veins should consider laser procedures for quick relief. The advantages include shorter recovery time (since the procedures are minimally invasive), lower risk of infection, and less discomfort for the patient. Clinical trials have shown that laser procedures have a 97% effective rate for patients.
This minor procedure removes varicose veins with very small incision. The targeted veins are removed with a very small hook-like instrument under a local anesthetic, allowing most patients to resume normal activities within one to two days. This procedure is also considered minimally invasive, and the large majority of patients find that both their clinical and cosmetic outcomes are positive.
This procedure treats spider veins through the injection of a solution which causes the vein to collapse and eventually dissipate through the body. Most patients find that this minor procedure causes them little or no discomfort. (Note that this treatment method for spider veins is generally considered a cosmetic procedure, and therefore not covered by most insurance plans.)
