Generally, these malfunctioned veins do not cause any health issues and only pose cosmetic discomfort. At times though, they can cause physical pain as well. However, most people with varicose veins on their legs feel shy in wearing shorts or sports suits. Therefore, they seek Varicose Veins Treatment Dubai for medical reasons and not merely for aesthetic reasons.

Varicose Veins Treatment
When it comes to treating this condition, the best Varicose Vein Treatment Dubai is the laser. Although varicose vein surgery is also available, most doctors and patients prefer Laser Treatment due to its minimally invasive nature.
Two types of laser treatments are available for treating varicose veins:
Simple Laser Treatment
- In simple laser treatment, the varicose vein specialist in Dubai uses laser energy to target veins present below the skin.
- He/she will make the laser beams incident on the swollen veins from the outside the skin.
- The laser beams destroy the veins, and the heat energy blocks them.
- Generally, the recovery period for this treatment is very brief.
- Patients can return to their routine activities immediately after the procedure.
Endovenous Laser Treatment
- Endovenous laser varicose veins treatment Dubai is used to treat more prominent varicose veins inside the legs.
- The treatment is performed after the administration of local anesthesia.
- For this purpose, a 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 its collapse, and the body quickly absorbs it.
- Since the varicose veins do not perform any functions anyway, their collapse does not affect the leg’s functionality.
Follow these tips to ensure that you are best prepared for laser varicose veins treatment and get the most out of it:
- Stop taking any blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, beta-blockers, etc., at least two weeks before the treatment.
- Discontinue taking supplements such as Cod Liver Oil and Vitamin E for about 10-15 days before the procedure.
