Leg Veins

What is Leg Veins ?

Leg veins, or varicose veins, are hefty, projecting, swollen blood vessels formed in a zigzag pattern. These types of raised veins frequently occur in the legs and are usually visible through the skin. However, they should not be confused with "spider veins," which are smaller, reddish/purple and blue in the same zigzag pattern. Leg veins are very common and can form on other parts of the body as well. From time to time, varicose veins may cause skin ulcers or sores, blood clots, mild to mid-level pain, and other similar problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Leg veins vary from thin red veins to more plump purple veins. The foremost causes are when the condition runs in the family, pregnancy, and occupations that demand long periods of standing. Other factors include old age, gender, obesity, being overweight, and leg trauma.
If leg vein discomfort is minimal, a physician may simply advise the individual to make lifestyle modifications. If symptoms are acute, a doctor may suggest several leg veins treatments. One of the most popular treatments is laser leg veins treatment. This type of leg veins treatment is effective on all skin types regardless of skin color. The treatment works best on fine veins.
The treatment consist of applying light energy from a laser onto a leg vain, making the vein disappear. Laser energy is expunged via the skin and into the vein. After the vein is heated, the wall breaks down and closes. The sealed vein is then dissolved and absorbed by the body. Laser surgery is primarily used on smaller veins. The treatment involves no cutting, injections, or chemicals.
Leg vein treatments take roughly 15 to 30 minutes; however, the time may vary depending on the veins that need to be treated. Treatments are divided into eight-week segments.
Two treatments usually leave the best results.
Most treatments involve minimal discomfort; however, while the laser pulses are delivered some individuals may experience a light stinging sensation on the skin. A topical anesthetic cream is used to decrease discomfort.
Infrequently, the treated area will be mildly swollen and sensitive for several weeks. The area should be kept well moisturized, away from sunlight. A sunscreen should be worn as well. Strenuous exercise should be avoided and support tights or stocks are recommended one week after treatment. It takes approximately eight weeks for the treated veins to disappear.
In most cases, the veins are completely removed. Nonetheless, the appearance of new veins cannot be prevented; therefore, further treatment may be required.
