Why It Is Easier To Treat Varicose Veins Now Than Ever Before

Varicose veins are a condition that many people across the country endure, and while it may not cause any serious harm, it is a very unsightly problem that ruins many people’s self-confidence. If this is something that you have struggled with for a long time then you should look for a local varicose vein treatment specialist. There has never been a better time to get help, as there are more phlebologists and associated medical personnel than ever before. Here are a few ways in which they can help you that simply were not around in the past.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

While that might sound like quite a mouthful, the process itself is quite simple. At a local healthcare provider's clinic (you do not need to go to the hospital) you have a small incision cut into your leg through which a device with a laser is gently inserted into the problem area. The laser is then used to heat up the vein, causing it to fall back in itself and close up entirely. This is not painful, or bad for your body. All it does is remove the physical pronouncement of your vein on the outside of your legs, thus eliminating your varicose veins.

Far Greater Number Of Experts

A phlebologist is someone who specializes in veins and issues that affect them, and while they deal with a great many rare and complicated problems, they also help out with varicose vein removal. What you may not know is that until 2005, they were not even a recognized specialty, which means that since that time, there has been a massive influx of research, money, and manpower poured into this part of medical science. The result has been amazing for people who suffer from varicose veins, and there are many different medical personnel who can help you out now that simply did not exist twenty years ago.


As with many procedures related to veins, sclerotherapy has quite an unusual name that can sound off-putting but is really quite simple. All that is involved with this procedure is the insertion of a special type of non-toxic liquid that is placed into the affected vein or veins. This liquid does not allow blood flow to go through the veins, which then causes them to reduce in size and eventually cease to exist entirely. The blood still gets where it needs to go, through numerous other veins, but you yourself are now clear of varicose veins.
