Varicose Veins Treatment:

When it comes to treatment of Varicose Veins in Dubai, there are two highly effective treatments which are surgery and laser treatment. Laser Treatment is the preferred choice for most people due to its minimally invasive nature.

The Procedure:

Laser treatment for Varicose Veins is an effective and safe way to get the swollen veins treated, especially when they have started to cause discomfort as well. Two types of laser treatments are used for removal of varicose veins.

Simple laser treatment

  • In simple laser varicose veins treatment, the veins present just below the skin are treated with laser energy.
  • Laser beams are made incident on the swollen veins from the outside of the skin.
  • This destroys the veins and the heat energy blocks them
  • The recovery period for this type of treatment is very brief
  • You can return to routine activities soon after the procedure has been performed.

Endovenous laser treatment

  • Endovenous laser treatment is used to treat larger varicose veins inside the legs.
  • For this purpose, thin tube is passed into the affected vein(s) after making small incisions.
  • The tube has a laser fiber on its tip which provides laser energy to the veins.
  • The energy once absorbed by the veins helps it in collapsing and the body can easily absorb it.
  • Since the varicose veins are not performing any functions anyway, their collapse has no effect on the functionality of the leg.
  • The treatment is performed after the administration of local anesthesia.

Which laser system is used?

Several types of lasers can be used for removal of varicose veins but Nd: Yag laser system is most commonly used for this purpose due to its effectiveness. CANDELA GENTLEMAX LASER is also used for Laser varicose veins removal in Abu Dhabi.

  • Avoid smoking and drinking for a week before treatment
  • Take good 8 hours sleep the night before your procedure
  • Wash and shave the treatment before coming for the treatment

I had prominent varicose veins near my ankles. I tried various home remedies and topical treatments before coming to Laser Skin Care. Olimpia used lasers to burn and block the veins successfully without a single incision or injection. It took just 3 laser sessions to complete remove unsightly blue veins. Extremely satisfied with the results, would not hesitate to recommend the clinic to my friends and family.

I have recently undergone laser therapy for bulging varicose veins on my lower legs and around ankles and I am extremely satisfied with the results. Appearance of bulging veins has improved significantly after getting just two laser treatments and I am hoping to see them fade away completely after a couple of more sessions. Fingers crossed!
