How to treat Varicose Veins

1. Laser Treatment (Nd YAG)

which is very popular in Europe and America. The best technology nowadays is suitable for small varicose veins. The laser will pass through the upper surface to the area of the varicose veins precisely, causing the blood vessels to become hot and destroyed. With the cooling gas, the pain is reduced by adding coolness to the upper skin. The treatment does not damage the skin and can cure varicose veins safely, quickly, and most efficiently, without a scar. After the treatment, some varicose veins will fade away immediately, and some may take 2-3 days to disappear.

2. Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy causes varicose veins to collapse and eventually fade away by injecting a solution directly into the vein. It is recommended for a 2-3 mm vein. After treatment, you may experience minor side effects, such as itching, red areas at the injection site, and bruising.

3. Vein Stripping

This surgical procedure is recommended for large and long varicose veins. Even if this procedure is safe and low-risk, there are always side effects associated with surgeries. These include bleeding and inflammation at incision sites
