Are You a Good Candidate for Endovenous Laser Treatment?

Endovenous Laser Treatment

Similar to all other cosmetic treatments currently available, Endovenous Laser Treatment may not be right for every patient of ours. A variety of personal and treatment factors may interfere with your ability to enjoy the benefits of this life-changing procedure. So how should you know if you are a good candidate for Endovenous Laser Treatment?

Do You Have Spider Veins or Varicose Veins?

Vein treatments specialize in the type of vein you are looking to remove. Varicose veins are typically larger than spider veins and may be more difficult to remove. Endovenous Laser Treatment is great for the larger varicose veins. The treatment uses a laser fiber inserted directly into the impacted vein. Through this fiber, our technician is able to permanently close down the vein before it is eventually absorbed by the body. Individuals suffering from smaller veins may not be able to receive Endovenous Laser Treatment, as their veins might be too small for the catheter that is used.

Are Your Veins Straight or Twisted?

Good candidates for Endovenous Laser Treatment are also those who are experiencing varicose veins that are not twisting around. The straighter the vein is the easier it is to complete the treatment and avoid any potential complications.

Are You in Good Health?

Endovenous Laser Treatment is also ideal for those who are in generally good health. While the procedure is minimally invasive, it is best designed for healthy individuals. Certain medical conditions can interfere with your treatment, especially if you are on certain medications such as blood thinners. Patients who are wheelchair-bound are also not ideal candidates as walking is critical during the recovery period.

Are You Looking to Remove a Blood Clot?

If you have a blood clot, you are not an ideal candidate for Endovenous Laser Treatment. The location of the blood clot may interfere with your treatment. Ask us what kind of treatment options we have for your blood clot.

Are You Pregnant?

We do not recommend EndovenousLaser Treatment for women who are currently pregnant. However, please see us after your delivery for your vein treatment needs.
