Arteries carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body whereas veins carry blood back to the heart. The valves in the veins stop the blood from flowing backward. When vein valves become dysfunctional, veins have trouble sending blood from limbs back to the heart; this condition is known as venous insufficiency or vein disease. This condition can be caused by blood clots or varicose veins and it affects millions of people in the US and around the world. If left untreated this condition can lead to serious complications and affect the quality of life and mobility of patients.
Once the valves in the veins become dysfunctional they cannot be fixed themselves without proper treatment. Some of the symptoms of vein disease are painful varicose and spider veins, leg pain or cramps, leg heaviness or swelling, restless legs syndrome, skin discoloration on the legs or non-healing wounds.
At USA Vein Clinics we offer a minimally invasive and non-surgical vein treatment called Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT). During this procedure, the diseased vein is sealed using laser energy. This treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure and takes around 15 minutes. Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the treatment.
This is how life can change after an EVLT treatment:
- No swollen, bulging or twisted veins on the legs
- No leg pain, heaviness or swelling on the legs
- Better sleep due to improvement in symptoms of restless legs
- Improved skin quality
- Better quality of life and mobility
