You can now enjoy an improved body image, regain confidence in your appearance, while receiving significant relief from the discomfort of varicose veins. Gone are the leg pain, discomfort, itching, swelling and heaviness that interfere with your normal daily activities. Even more importantly the serious health risks associated with this condition are prevented.
Varicose veins are large, distended veins located in the lower legs and thighs. While your arteries carry fresh blood away from your heart to your extremities, the veins return the depleted blood into your heart and lungs. This return flow has to overcome the forces of gravity, when in an upright position. This return flow is supported by regular physical activity and the uniquely human one way valves in the leg veins, that prevent the blood from falling back (reflux). If the valves cease to function properly, your blood doesn’t flow efficiently and can cause the veins to become enlarged and congested with blood.
Abnormal leg veins may cause pain in the legs and can be especially troublesome for those who work on their feet, or enjoy sports involved activities. Symptoms include feelings of fatigue, heaviness, aching, burning, throbbing, itching, cramping and restlessness of the legs and are often aggravated by prolonged standing. Varicose veins can contribute to general discomfort and an uncomfortable swelling of the legs may also occur. Severe varicose vein insufficiency can cause blood clot formation in these veins, in the lungs and the heart. Also it compromises the nutrition of the skin and could lead to inflammation or even ulceration of the lower legs.
Heredity is the foremost contributing factor causing varicose and spider veins; both men and women suffer from abnormal leg veins. Hormonal factors including puberty, pregnancy, menopause, birth control pills, estrogen and progesterone also contribute to this condition. Other predisposing factors include aging, standing occupations, obesity and leg injury.
** Dr. Vajtai reduces your varicose veins by closing them with Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT), a minimally invasive, ultrasound-guided technique using laser energy. This quick, safe and nearly completely pain free procedure is performed in the comfort and care of Veinity Spa health, beauty and wellness center, without the use of general anesthesia. The precise diagnosis is established with careful preoperative examination, including a detailed ultrasound evaluation.
After complete local anesthesia and with ultrasound guidance Dr. Vajtai will insert a laser fiber in the entire length of the involved vein. The energy from the laser source heats and closes the vein, and by this action reduces the source of the reflux. You will become symptom free in about 2 weeks. Also you will appreciate the amazing cosmetic improvement as well. This painless technique takes approximately 45 minutes to perform.
There are no significant complications related to the reduction of the varicose vein: on the contrary, by closing these veins, leg circulation improves significantly, preventing the development of stasis ulcers. The healthy veins are not touched by the laser and will continue to carry blood away from the legs in an efficient manner.
