red veins on someones leg

If you’re looking for a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins, you’re not alone. According to the American Society for Vascular Surgery, more than 20 million people in the United States who suffer from these stubborn veins are actively looking for an effective treatment option. At The Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center, we offer endovenous laser therapy to remove varicose veins, minimize symptoms, and reduce the risk of complications. Below is more information that will help you determine whether or not you are a candidate for this treatment.
Overall Good Health
You might be a good candidate for endovenous laser therapy if you don’t have a severe medical condition or infection. During your initial consultation, our doctor will evaluate your medical health and perform a physical examination to determine whether this non-invasive varicose vein treatment is right for you.
Large Varicose Veins 
This non-invasive treatment works best on varicose veins that are large and protruding but not too twisty. If you have small varicose veins with a lot of twists and turns, the endovenous laser therapy might not work for you. Our doctor may recommend a different treatment such as sclerotherapy. You are also a good candidate if your varicose veins are red, swollen, warm, and tender to the touch.
Realistic Expectations 
You are a good candidate if you have realistic expectations about the outcomes of this laser treatment. Our doctor will ask you to give reasons you want to undergo endovenous laser therapy and what you expect after your treatment. Your answers will help them to determine whether you understand the extent to which they can realistically treat and minimize your varicose veins.
Pregnancy and Breastfeeding 
Many health care providers recommend avoiding endovenous laser therapy during pregnancy because there is no information about the effect of lasers on the unborn baby. You should also avoid this laser treatment for varicose veins if you are breastfeeding. If you’re not going to breastfeed, you must wait at least four months after giving birth before you can be considered for this treatment.
