Laser Varicose Vein Treatment with CoolTouch
Dr. Katzen uses the Cooltouch laser to treat unattractive and bulging veins without surgery. The procedure is performed in office and patients enjoy a very fast recovery time. In fact, most patients can return to work the same day.
What Are Varicose Veins?
When there is a back flow of blood in the legs, the veins start to bulge and can create an unattractive appearance. When you have healthy circulation, the blood flows through the veins from the feet upward towards the lungs and heart. If the blood valve becomes damaged or weakened for some reason, you will have a situation of bi-directional blood flow where the veins start to dilate and bulge from the pressure. If left untreated, varicose veins can cause a number of problems such as discoloration of the skin, swelling in the legs, restless leg syndrome, and discomfort from itching.
Traditional Varicose Vein Treatment
Traditional vein treatments involve surgery which typically requires multiple incisions. These incisions typically leave a small scar and patients undergoing this type of treatment typically need to take several days off to heal from surgery. Additionally, surgery for varicose veins can be up to seven times more expensive than the CoolTouch laser treatment.
Endovenous Laser Treatment for Varicose Veins
The CoolTouch endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins is a revolutionary procedure designed to target water in the vessel wall. It is a minimally-invasive procedure so there is very little post-op bruising and swelling involved. It is the most comfortable laser vein treatment available and boasts a 99% efficacy rate.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy After Laser Treatment
In some cases, small veins around the larger, bulging veins that have been treated do not end up disappearing completely. In this type of situation, you may need to undergo sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy where small segments of the vein are removed through small holes made with a needle. Dr. Katzen can recommend complementary treatments after assessing results of your laser procedure.
Is Varicose Vein Treatment Covered by Insurance?
Most insurance providers and Medicare will cover varicose veins treatment if you are experiencing symptoms such as restless legs, swelling, itching, and pain which are indicative of a disease. If you do not have insurance, talk to us about financing options.
