Varicose veins are something that millions of Americans have to face during the later years of life. It is still uncertain what the exact cause is, but you don’t have to live with them. You may simply want to have them removed because you think they are unsightly. You can easily seek treatment that will help improve the appearance of your legs, prevent common complications that could be a result of varicose veins and relieve any painful symptoms you may be experiencing. Treatment itself isn’t a problem, but choosing the right treatment can be difficult. Let’s take a closer look at one of the more popular treatments.
There are many reasons why you should choose one form of treatment over another. Here are a few reasons why EVLT is an effective treatment for varicose veins. Pain management is an issue for everyone. Unlike the other procedures that are available today, EVLT has not been reported to be all that painful. The pain is minimal due to the unique way the procedure works.
Ultrasound technology is used to accurately see the location of the damaged vein or veins. A laser is then used to shut down the vein from the inside out. Not only does this help to remove pain from the equation, but it also helps for a more accurate removal of the damaged veins.
This treatment is not considered to be “surgery.” It is being labeled as a “treatment” instead. This means there are no hospital visits, no uncomfortable anesthesia and a quick recovery. The entire procedure only lasts about 45 minutes and it can be conducted on an outpatient basis. Contact your insurance company to find out whether or not EVLT is covered under your policy.
Isn’t it about time you were no longer embarrassed about the way you legs look?
