Though many are embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of their varicose veins, many also experience extreme discomfort and aching due to this common condition affecting millions of Americans. In the past, varicose veins were treated in a painful process called “vein stripping,” in which the problematic varicose vein was surgically removed from the leg. Doctors at the Renaissance Institute can now provide varicose veins treatment in Encino via advanced laser technology that is minimally invasive and highly effective.
With varicose veins treatment in Encino, patients are able to relieve, if not completely remove, the appearance of their varicose veins, as well as the pain, aching, and itchiness that goes along with them. Under local anesthesia, a thin catheter containing a laser diode is inserted into the varicose vein, after which pulses of intense laser light cause the vein to heat up, shrivel up and become reabsorbed into the body. The immediate effects of laser varicose veins treatment in Encino are subtle, with drastic improvement becoming visible 3-4 weeks after the procedure. If you want to find out if this varicose veins treatment in Encino is right for you, please call and schedule a consultation with one of our doctors.
